Votes by Cheryl Critchley, notes by Chris, notes in quotes by Cheryl.
We asked journo and driving force in the AFL Fans Association, Cheryl Critchley, to give the votes for this (fairly miserable) game. Cheryl is a dyed in the wool Tiger, but her children are in mutiny around her as the Tiges make another feeble start to a season that promised so much.
Cheryl said “it was very hard to come up with five. Very disappointing day for Tiger fans.”
5 votes: Bachar Houli. Has had a really consistent start to the year. Cheryl said “I just think he put in most of the day and few of the others did. His skills were also less deplorable than most.”
4 votes: Trent Cotchin. Got heaps of it, six tackles and kicked his fortnightly goal.
3 votes: Sam Lloyd. Has stepped up to be a reliable contributor – 3 goals, 16 touches and a memorable mark.
2 votes: Jack Riewoldt.
1 vote: Brandon Ellis.
5: Lambert, Lloyd, Riewoldt
4: Rance, Martin, Cotchin
3: Townsend, Short
1: Hampson, Ellis
