Defenders

Back Pocket: Caleb Daniel (Western Bulldogs)

Daniel has thrived as a defender in 2019, where he is able to use his elite kicking skills to find targets in the defensive half. On the weekend, he recorded 36 disposals (77% efficiency), three marks, six tackles and ten rebound 50’s.

Full Back: Alex Pearce (Fremantle)

Played on Taylor Walker for the entire game and rendered him completely ineffective, after he looked back to his best in the two weeks prior. He also had 16 disposals, six marks and laid three tackles.

Back Pocket: Tom Stewart (Geelong)

A regular in the team of the week, Stewart is putting together another excellent season. Against the Bombers, Stewart managed 25 disposals at 80% efficiency and took nine marks.

Half Back: Zac Williams (GWS)

Williams was clearly best on ground in the win over St Kilda, where his speed and superior ball use was on full display. He finished with 30 disposals, eight marks, 12 rebound 50’s, eight score involvements, nine intercept possessions and 685 metres gained.

Centre Half Back: Darcy Moore (Collingwood)

Moore’s ability to intercept was on full display on Friday night, where he recorded 21 disposals, seven marks and 12 intercept possessions.

Half Back: Brodie Smith (Adelaide)

Smith’s run and carry from the back half arguably makes him Adelaide’s most important player. In the gruelling win over the Dockers, Smith finished with 25 disposals, three marks, one goal, seven intercept possessions and 497 metres gained.
