This marks the second week in a row that Hurn finds himself in our team of the week. Despite his side going down he again was everywhere, recording 29 disposals and clunking 10 marks.
A fantastic game in the wet for the Giants co-captain. He did everything he could for his side, finishing the game with 23 disposals (17 intercept possessions) and seven marks.
Back Pocket – Sam Mayes (Brisbane)
Mayes was one of a number of Brisbane players who stood up in their game against Carlton. He would go onto finish the game with 23 disposals and an impressive 12 marks.
Half Back – Nick Vlaustin (Richmond)
After returning from a shoulder injury last week, Vlaustin was back to his best against the Giants. 21 dispsoals, 13 intercept possessions and 11 marks meant the defender was ever-present for the Tigers down back.
Centre Half Back – Michael Hibberd (Melbourne)
36 disposals in a terrific win means Hibberd once again earns a place in Zero Hanger’s team of the week. He has been excellent since coming to Melbourne, and round 18 was no different.
While Shannon Hurn was everywhere down one end, Crisp was doing the same thing down the other. He had 33 disposals in a terrific effort down back for the Pies.
