The month of September is filled with the memories of players who captured the hearts of fanbases with performances like no other.

Every team in the top eight has at least one of those players.

Some were simply born to be on the big stage, and this year's finals series will unveil the birth of newfound stars who will help lift their sides to the best of their abilities.

Here we break down each club's top player come finals.

3. Port Adelaide

Ollie Wines

Wines stands clear at the top of the ladder for Port Adelaide, as his finals numbers are unlike any other on the Power's roster.

His significance to Port Adelaide's attempt at making the Grand Final has severely outweighed the rest of Ken Hinkley's side.

Wines' substantial work around the contest has paved the way for fellow engine-roomers Connor Rozee and Zak Butters to have career-best seasons.

The dangerous presence of Wines around the contest will be on all teams' minds this September.

Finals numbers: 24.8 disposals, 3.5 tackles, 4.7 clearances, and 12.0 contested possessions per game.
