Jarrod Harbrow was good in a side that got a shellacking. Andy Otten and Alex Keath were a part of a dominant Crows back six. Adam Kennedy and Nick Haynes had quality games for the Giants, despite their team being uncompetitive. Jimmy Webster played extremely well.
Dom Sheed probably cemented his place in the Eagles best twenty-two. Jack Steele was one of the Saints better players. James Harmes played his best game from a statistical perspective with twenty-nine possessions.
Mitch Duncan and Gary Ablett played important roles for the Cats. Billy Gowers kicked three goals for the Bulldogs, proving that he has a future at AFL level. Zac Bailey played to his capability for the Lions. Liam Ryan kicked three goals, which probably proves that he is in the Eagles best line up. Hayden Ballantyne kicked four goals in one of his better performances for the season.
Stefan Martin outplayed Scott Lycett. Jack Steven and Stephen Coniglio were outstanding despite their teams losing.
Luke Shuey showed that he belongs in the Eagles midfield. Paul Ahern proved that he belongs in the Kangaroos best twenty-two. Jamie Macmillan and Ryan Clarke proved that they could become important cogs in the Kangaroos best twenty-two.
