Joel Hamling was super against his old side. Robbie Tarrant performed admirably for the Kangaroos in a narrow loss. Shane Savage was outstanding for the Saints in a fairly respectable loss against the Crows with 30 possessions. Nick Vlastuin took intercept marks at will for the Tigers. Jack Hombsch did his job in a battle with the Lions Eric Hipwood. Bachar Houli continues to prove that he warranted a one year contract extension for the Tigers at the end of last year.
Lachie Hunter was the best player on the field in the Bulldogs loss to the Dockers. Scott Pendelbury showed great leadership when the game was there to be won for the Magpies. Sam Walsh showed why he should win the Rising Star award with a quality display.
Michael Walters impressed for the Dockers with 2 goals. Joe Daniher kicked 4 key goals to almost get the Bombers over the line. Jason Castagna was the leading goal kicker on the field with 3 goals. Gary Ablett played extremely well for the Cats. Marcus Bontempelli played reasonably well in his role at full forward. Brandon Matera was outstanding for the Dockers with 5 goals.
Brodie Grundy was probably the second best player on the ground in the Anzac Day game. Ben Cunnington stepped up in the absence of Shaun Higgins. Angus Brayshaw showed great endeavour for the Demons.
Jack Steven showed what an important player he is for the Saints. Liam Shiels kicked 3 vital goals for the Hawks and also had 9 tackles. Sydney Stack didn’t get much of the ball, but played extremely well for the Tigers, making an impact every time he was near the footy. Matt Guelfi showed that he belongs in the Bombers best 22 with a quality performance
