Lachlan Scholl 

Led his side to a strong finish against the Kangaroos after a late scare, collecting the ball on 31 occasions while grabbing eight marks and scoring a lousy 160 SuperCoach points.

Showed great signs in his rookie season last year and looks to be showing no sign of the second-year blues.

Luke Parker

Had a huge opening term to set the bar early and played at a high level from there to lead his side to the win on Thursday.

Ended the night with 32 touches, 16 contested possession, seven marks, six clearances, one goal and three Brownlow votes.

Jack Macrae

It was another unstoppable effort by the Bulldogs' midfield and while we could have had a couple more in our side, we opted for Jack Mac' above the rest.

The silky onballer had another day out in Ballarat with 32 touches, eight tackles and a goal to poll 15 MVP votes.
