Sam Peet’s season at the Northern Blues is the latest to be analysed in the 2017 Regency Windows player review series.
THE YEAR THAT WAS
Sam Peet entered 2017 for his second season on the Northern Blues’ senior list, and went onto play all bar two games at Development level.
Peet rotated his time between the forward line and the ruck, spending more time in the middle following the season-ending injury to Angus Milham.
The key tall added eight goals to his career tally in 2017, while placing third for hitouts behind Milham and ruck partner Sean Bolger.
He was also in the top 10 in the Development side for marks throughout the season, including second in contested marks behind only Bailey Jordan.
Peet started the year with a solid performance, kicking two goals against Port Melbourne in Round 1 despite the Blues going down in a heavy defeat.
Statistically, his best game for the season would come in the middle portion of the year in Round 11 against Box Hill.
With Northern Knights ruckman Matthew Harman alongside him, Peet registered 14 disposals, 22 hitouts and two goals against the finals-bound Hawks as the Blues suffered a narrow eight-point loss at Preston City Oval.
