Joel Hamling showed that he deserves to be a permanent fixture in the Dockers best twenty-two. Heath Grundy was possibly the Swans best player. Jake Lloyd displayed why he was in the All-Australian squad of 40. Rory Laird played a quality game. Sam Frost and Michael Hibberd were important cogs in the Demons back six that were dominant against the Giants.
Bradley Hill nearly got the Dockers over the line against the Magpies. Jack Macrae was probably the best player in the competition in round 23. Lachie Hunter continued his stellar form.
Lachie Neale displayed why he made the All Australian squad. Josh Jenkins kicked seven goals. Devon Smith was possibly the best player for the Bombers. Justin Westhoff should be regarded as the Power’s best player last Friday night as he managed to kick five goals. Jack Riewoldt also kicked five goals. Jack Ziebell led from the front having an impact in the forward half for the Kangaroos.
Toby Nankervis showed why he is so important to the Tigers. Patrick Dangerfield had a field day for the Cats. Steele Sidebottom played an outstanding game.
Brodie Grundy continues to be a revelation for the Magpies. Dustin Martin was a key factor in the Tigers beating the Bulldogs. Josh Dunkley and Caleb Daniel showed that they are two of the more underrated players in the AFL.
