Darcy Gardiner had twenty-four possessions, his second highest tally in a game for the season. Phil Davis led from the front for the Giants and Nick Haynes played a solid game too. Adam Saad provided a lot of run out of defence for the Bombers. Aliir Aliir was one of the better players for the Swans. Nathan Broad played his role for the team.
Shane Edwards was the equal leading disposal getter for the Tigers, along with that he managed to use the ball efficiently. Jack Steele put in a solid display. Scott Selwood managed to hit the scoreboard twice.
Sam Petrevski-Seton bounced back from his disappointing effort in round 18. Ryan, Schonemakers managed to hit the scoreboard on a couple of occasions in his role as a forward. Jason Castagna kicked two vital goals for the Tigers and made all of his twelve possessions count. Eddie Betts had a equal season high twenty possessions and managed to kick two goals. Christian Petracca was one of the Demons better performers. Brandan Parfitt had his second best game from a statistical perspective for the year.
Brodie Grundy had a fantastic game, he even managed to have an impact defensively with ten tackles. Will Brodie proved that he should be a permanent part of the Suns midfield for the second week in a row. From a statistical perspective, David Mundy had his best game for the season with thirty-four possessions.
Charlie Dixon was probably the best player for the Power with five goals. Lachie Hunter had thirty-five possessions, despite starting in a forward pocket. The performance of Darcy Parish was proof that he is capable of breaking into the Bombers midfield. Jack Bowes showed why he was recalled to the Suns line up with twenty disposals.
