Brayden Maynard showed why he is such a quality defender. Steven May did a good job in curtailing the influence of Eric Hipwood of the Lions. Jake Lloyd continued to be prolific and get a lot of the ball. Rory Laird accumulated over forty possessions. Logan Austin and Jimmy Webster were a part of a back six that performed admirably.
David Zaharakis substantiated why he is such an important player for the Bombers. Luke Parker was a integral part of a Swans team that upset the Giants. Dylan Shiel played an exceptional game.
Devon Smith continued to back up why he may well be the best recruit in the competition, playing for his second AFL club; the Bombers. Jake Melksham kicked four crucial goals. Tim Kelly will probably get the three Brownlow votes in round 22 for the Cats. Josh Caddy has been a pivotal part of the Tigers forward line. Tom Hawkins and Brandon Parfitt kicked ten goals between them.
Brodie Grundy displayed why he is likely to feature in the 2018 All Australian team. Taylor Adams and Steele Sidebottom both had outstanding games for the Magpies.
Dustin Martin was probably the best player on the ground. Lance Franklin was back to his best, as he managed to kick five crucial goals. Marcus Bontempelli put in a quality performance. Matt Crouch had over forty disposals for the Crows.
