2017 NAB Cup:  

2017 Season

Played for : Adelaide

1 GWS First game in Adelaide colours and didn't disappoint. 6
2    
3 SANFL Slotted two goals and provided value for touches.
4 Ess Didn’t make the most of his chances, will be better for the run and belongs at the elite level. 5
5 GCS Only the two kicks, though made the most of it; kicked two goals. 2
6 SANFL Pressed his claims for an AFL recall with a superb display in losing cause, tallying 23 disposals, seven marks.
7 SANFL Booted two goals and was one of the few Crows to look damaging at any stage.
8 Melb Should be providing more, whether that be goals, scoring assists, inside-50’s or tackles, needs to lift and quickly. 4
9   Quad.  
10   Quad.  
11 SANFL Disappointing. His second half wasn’t too bad but he is capable of so much more.
12 SANFL Gave the Redlegs fits with four classy majors.
13   Bye.  
14 SANFL Laid five tackles but was fairly well held overall by his old side.
15 SANFL Slotted a sweet running goal early but was virtually unsighted thereafter. An enigma.
16 SANFL Kicked a goal and racked up eight tackles. 13 touches isn’t enough for a guy blessed with his gifts though.
17 SANFL Helped himself to three goals and looked dangerous whenever he was near the footy. Was quiet after half-time.
18 SANFL Seven possessions and six tackles tells the story. Needs to touch the footy more because he can be dynamic with it.
19 SANFL Showed his class with three goals and some eye-catching manoeuvres.
20 SANFL Bye.
21 SANFL Dazzling display with four majors including a cracker from the boundary line in the fourth quarter.
22 SANFL Continued to find the big sticks, bagging another three goals and setting up others. Great to watch.
23 SANFL Played his part as an attacking harasser with a major and six tackles.
