Defenders

Back Pocket: Luke Hodge (Brisbane)

Hodge turned back the clock on Saturday and played his best game for the Lions so far. He finished with 30 disposals and kicked his first goal and even managed a spectacular contested mark to prove that there’s still a bit more footy left in this superstar.

Full Back: Cale Hooker (Essendon)

The Essendon swingman was instrumental in helping the Bombers to a surprise 28-point win against the Eagles on Thursday night. Hooker finished with 20 disposals at 85% and took nine marks.

Back Pocket: Tom Jonas (Port Adelaide)

Jonas is a real chance to win his first ever Port Adelaide Best and Fairest this year and he played a big part in Port defeating the Demons by 10 points on Friday night. The key defender finished with 20 disposals and 11 marks.

The former Docker played his best game for the Dogs and finished with a career best 30 disposals, 23 of them in the first half.

Centre Half Back: Shannon Hurn (West Coast)

Hurn was West Coast’s best player in their 28-point loss to the Bombers on Thursday night. The big defender finished with 24 disposals and nine marks and was a rock in defence for the Eagles.

Half Back: Adam Saad (Essendon)

The rebounding defender played one of his best games for the Bombers since crossing over from the Gold Coast Suns at the end of last season. Saad provided plenty of run and had 26 disposals at a very impressive 89%.
