Lachie Whitfield was prolific for the Giants, even though they lost. David Astbury was outstanding for the Tigers, while Nic Newman made an impact every time he touched the ball for the Blues. Bachar Houli was impressive for the Tigers, while Darcy Moore and Jack Crisp provided plenty of run off half back for the Magpies.
Kamdyn Mcintolsh showed great attack on the footy for the Tigers. Matt Crouch was unbelievable for the Crows, while Ricky Henderson was a shining light for the Hawks.
Jack Billings was prolific for the Saints. Lance Franklin kicked 4 goals for the Swans. Sam Gray showed that he belongs in the Power’s best 22. Dustin Martin stepped up in the absence of other key Tigers players. Tim Membrey was outstanding for the Saints, while Eddie Betts managed to kick 6 goals for the Crows.
Toby Nankervis proved that he could well be the Tigers most important player. Orazio Fantasia was fantastic for the Bombers. Zac Fisher proved that he is an important cog in the Blues team.
Harry Mckay finished with 4 goals for the Blues, proving that he could be one of the best forwards in the game. Brad Crouch was prolific for the Crows. Michael Walters is one of the most underrated in the competition and he showed why in Round 5. Luke Parker was a positive to come out of the Swans Round 5 game.
