Jamie Macmillan was one of the Kangaroos best players in Round 9. Cale Hooker and Michael Hurley were part of a back six that helped the Bombers get over the line. Nic Newman was probably the Blues best player, providing plenty of run out of defence. Nathan Wilson was one of the most important players for the Dockers. Bachar Houli provided plenty of run off half back for the Tigers.
George Hewett, Zach Merrett and Mitch Duncan were all part of the reason why their respective teams got over the line in Round 9.
Matt de Boer did a good job tagging Patrick Cripps and won a lot of the ball himself. Ben Reid and Tom Hawkins kicked 3 and 4 goals respectively. Noah Balta had 14 possessions and kicked a goal, Balta has embraced his role as the Tigers second ruckman. Tim Membrey kicked 4 goals for the Saints, while Dustin Martin was back to his best for the Tigers.
Brodie Grundy was a standout for the Magpies. Brad Crouch and Travis Boak were outstanding for their respective teams.
Mitch Wallis was the Bulldogs best player in Round 9. Lachie Neale showed why he may well be leading the 2019 AFL Brownlow Medal count after Round 9. Jeremy Finlayson kicked 5 goals, while Tom Papley kicked 4 goals.
