Votes by Sean Ross and notes by Chris
5 votes: Bachar Houli. Played four quarters, was prepared to get his hands dirty and showed some rare mongrel.
4 votes: Dusty Martin. Led the way busting tackles in the early going, inspired others to do likewise.
3 votes: Jayden Short. Nerveless debut, within half an hour of first running onto an AFL ground he was our best hope of hitting the scoreboard
2 votes: Jack Riewoldt. Led a 3rd quarter rally which would have been enough to give a sane team winning momentum.
1 vote: Shaun Hampson. Old fashioned hard work, did lions share against young and springy opponents. Should never be permitted to kick for goal again even at training.
5: Lambert, Houli
4: Rance, Martin
3: Townsend, Short, Riewoldt
