Back Pocket: Shannon Hurn (West Coast)
Shannon Hurn won the Glendinning-Allan Medal for Western Derby 49 after he was judged best afield. Hurn finished with 32 disposals (26 kicks), eight marks, three tackles, 16 intercept possessions and 480 metres gained in the scrappy win.
Full Back: Michael Hurley (Essendon)
Led the defence that kept Eric Hipwood and Oscar McInerney to only two goals (after seven the week before). He also had 21 disposals (17 kicks), six marks, 11 intercept possessions and 498 metres gained.
Back Pocket: Brad Sheppard (West Coast)
Went unnoticed due to Hurn’s dominance but managed to finish with 27 disposals, 14 marks and 349 metres gained.
Half Back: Brandon Ellis (Richmond)
With Richmond missing a number of their key players, Ellis really stepped up and finished with 28 disposals, nine marks, two tackles and 433 metres gained. He also kicked a crucial goal from outside 50.
Centre Half Back: Dylan Grimes (Richmond)
Grimes was massive for the Tigers, particularly in the last quarter when he took a number of vital intercept marks when the game was on the line. Played a lockdown role on Robbie Gray but managed to record 17 disposals and seven marks as well.
Half Back: Lachie Whitfield (GWS)
Whitfield is arguably the most in-form player in the game at the moment, with his gut running a highlight. He recorded 31 disposals, ten marks, three tackles and 539 metres gained.
