Backs: Alex Rance has to be one of the most important players to his team in the competition; he produced an outstanding characteristic performance against the Cats. Heath Grundy managed to accumulate over twenty possessions in the full back position for the Swans. Dylan Grimes has to be one of the most underrated players in the AFL; he was pivotal for the Tigers against the Cats. Zak Jones played his role well for the Swans on Friday night. James Sicily started at centre half back and managed to go forward and kick three goals. Jake Lloyd got a lot of the ball, continuing his good form for the Swans.
Midfielders: Chad Wingard won plenty of the ball making an impact for the Power. Tom Mitchell managed to accumulate forty possessions for the Hawks. Oliver Florent goes under the radar, as he showed he is an important part of the Swans best twenty-two.
Forwards: Jack Billings responded well from being dropped, as he was an important part of the Saints collecting the four points. Justin Westhoff showed his value to the Power putting in a good performance. Jaeger O’Meara was one of the most instrumental players on the field for the Hawks. Robbie Gray is capable of getting a lot of possessions and kicking goals, despite starting in a forward pocket. Tom Hawkins may have only kicked a couple of goals, but presented well and played his role for the team. Jack Martin played a solid game for the Suns.
Followers: Rhys Stanley is making the ruck position his own for the Cats. Elliot Yeo kicked a couple of gaols and collected a lot of possessions. Nat Fyfe produced a typical Nat Fyfe performance hitting the scoreboard and picking up a lot of the ball.
Interchange: Tom Rockliff was just about the most influential player on the field for the Power. Liam Duggan played a good game for the Eagles in the defence. Nick Vlastuin played possibly his best game for the Tigers. Lachie Neale was outstanding when the game was there to be won early on.
