Cameron Guthrie

A ball magnet against the Hawks, collecting the ball on 43 occasions to go along with 10 clearances and 11 marks.

Was almost always first to shark a loose hit-out and assist the clearance, being part of Geelong's clean ball movement and control.

Can hopefully continue his hot start to the season when Patrick Dangerfield and Sam Menegola return.

Patrick Cripps

Led by example in the Blues' first win of the season, collecting the pill 34 times and booting two goals in the victory.

18 contested possessions and 11 clearances had the Carlton captain dominant in the engine room alongside partner-in-crime Sam Walsh - who firms as an unlucky player to miss out on our Team of the Week.

Hugh McCluggage

Might have been the difference maker for the Lions in that last quart (Bailey's goal aside).

McCluggage came up BIG for Brisbane in their fight back and perhaps edges out the aforementioned Daniel Rich to earn best-on-ground honours.

With Lachie Neale currently playing below his pay-grade, McCluggage and Jarryd Lyons look to be stepping up in his fractioned absence.
