The weekend brought us plenty of ups and downs from all players and clubs alike. Round 19 really heated up as we head towards to the finals for 2016. With finals fast approaching all eyes are on the performers and the flops of each week. Take note and expect all players to lay it all out on the field come the finals siren.
Josh P. Kennedy $9,500
The mercurial midfielder has hit top flight in recent weeks for the Swans and is unstoppable. With a massive performance over in Perth, Kennedy racked up 45 disposals and 3 goals in a dominant game. Kennedy finished the game with 158Fp and still looks likely to break that barrier before the end of the season with the form he is in.
Scott Pendlebury $9,400
The Rolls-Royce put on a captains performance in the win over the Eagles Saturday. Pendlebury worked hard for his 34 disposals, 13 tackles and earning free kicks come the final siren. The Pie midfielder is leading from the front and will likely duplicate an impressive performance Friday night against the Tigers.
David Mundy $8,000
It was an impressive outing for Mundy considering the mauling the Dockers copped at Domain Stadium Sunday afternoon. In Pavlich’s 350th game Mundy racked up 44 disposals, 4 tackles and a goal to his name. He has worked hard for the side recently and it is certainly showing in his output. Anything can happen in the Derby this week and needless to say they will leave it all out there on the ground.
John Butcher $3,500
Only his second game for the 2016 season, coming off a low of 30Fp. He backed up a poor performance with a massive 137Fp at the final siren. With 20 disposals, 11 marks and 4 goals the Power forward worked himself into the game with a bang. Questions remain whether he will back it up two weeks in a row but for all coaches who took the punt on him at $3,500, congratulations!
Jasper Pittard $6,900
The gun defender is having one of his best seasons for the Power. In the big win over the Lions, Pittard was virtually tagged out of the game. Only managing the 9 disposals, 1 mark and 1 tackle, he struggled form quarter to quarter. Against the Swans this week he will need a better performance, although i believe he knows what he needs to produce for redemption.
Sam Gilbert $5,200
The St Kilda defender didn’t produce anything near close to his potential for the club. He produced only the 7 disposals, 1 tackle and 1 mark. Against the Blues this week, it will be not easy task as their running full of confidence of late. With the senior head on the shoulders, Gilbert needs to bounce back but it will not be easy this week.
Mark LeCras $7,500
In a contest that needed all players up front firing, LeCras barely managed to impact the game. With just the 9 disposals, 3 tackles and one mark. He was caught holding the ball on more than one occasion and didn’t hit he scoreboard at all. He managed only the 31Fp and in a disappointing performance he needs to deliver a much more active game around the ground.
Michael Walters $7,300
Another forward who didn’t perform in a loss this week, with only the 12 disposals none of which impacted the scoreboard. With 1 mark, 1 tackle and a mark of the year nomination there wasn;t much else to say for his 36Fp. In the derby this week Walters will need to lift if the Dockers are any chance to cause an upset of their cross town rivals.
