BACKLINE 

Bachar Houli

Was vital in his side’s triumph over the former ladder leaders in the Western Bulldogs, adding plenty of run and chase out of defence and was as lethal as ever by foot.

Ended his night with 31 touches, 10 marks, 665 metres gained and a goal in what might be a three-vote outing for the Tigers veteran.

Nathan Broad

Put in an x-factor performance against the Bulldogs, failing to lose any of his one-on-one contests against a tough attacking opposition.

Collected the ball on 25 occasions while also accumulating 11 marks, 10 intercepts and six rebounds 50s.

Steven May

Was rock solid for his side down back, amassing 25 disposals from his 14 marks and seven intercepts for the game.

Also had a hand in 10 spoils as he shut down a majority of the Kangaroos’ attack on Sunday afternoon and had a team-high 552 metres gained.

Adam Saad

A massive statement against his former side, the dashing Blues defender offered plenty of run throughout the match to aid his side to a memorable victory.

Ended his evening with 21 touches, six rebounds 50s, six intercepts and eight score involvements, including a stellar long-range major.

Jacob Weitering

Clunked 11 marks against the Bombers, five of which came as intercepts in what was a stellar outing on Sunday.

Amassed 19 touches, nine intercepts and failed to lose any of his contested one-on-one marking encounters.

Bradley Hill 

Back to his best after starting in the backline and eventually moving up the ground, collecting the pill 27 times and using it at a rate of 85%.

Gained close to 600 metres for his side and was vital between either arcs in what we can hope to be the start of a nice run in form.
