BACKLINE

Christian Salem

The Demons flanker managed to attract the pill on 30 occasions against the Saints and was a formidable option of translating defence into attack.

One of many Melbourne players that shined in Spud's game, taking 10 marks and accumulating over 600 metres gained for the day.

Dougal Howard

The Saints key-defender was rock solid albeit in a loss for his side.

29 disposals, eight marks and a stunning 769 metres gained saw Howard step up in a match dedicated to one of St Kilda's greatest defenders in Danny Frawley.

While it wasn't the Saints' night, Howard can keep his head up high.

Dan Houston

The Power were dominant on Saturday, trouncing the Bombers in front of an ecstatic home crowd by nine goals.

Houston offered plenty of run and carry for Ken Hinkley, blitzing past the boys in the red sash on his way to collecting 25 touches, four tackles and 657 metres gained.

Braeden Campbell

A glamourous second match in the AFL saw Campbell lead as one of Sydney's best in a vital win over Adelaide to take their tally to 2-0 for the season.

An elite user of the ball, Campbell amassed 25 touches for the day that produced a game-high 708 metres gained and is firmed to be a worthy successor to Jake Lloyd.

Darcy Moore

The Magpies star defender backed up his dominant Round 1 outing with a performance as equally impressive against the Blues, whilst going home with the four points this week.

Despite a competitive tussle with Carlton forward Harry McKay, Moore was able to impact almost every contest as the Blues looked to attack, amassing a staggering 18 intercept possessions for his efforts.

Jack Crisp

Started the game off half-back and excelled when moved into the midfield, but we'll keep the pacey Magpie in our defence for his stellar outing against the Blues.

36 touches, seven marks and almost 800 metres gained saw Crisp thrive in his dual role between midfield and defence.
