James Sicily has not missed a beat in his return to footy, and it continued on Monday, despite the loss to Sydney. Sicily had 21 disposals, 11 marks, and ten rebound 50s. Brennan Cox helped patrol the Fremantle backline in their win over Carlton with 12 marks and 17 disposals at 100% disposal efficiency. Nick Vlastuin had 30 disposals and eight marks in Richmond’s loss to Melbourne.

Zach Tuohy had his best game of the season against the Kangaroos with 32 disposals and nine marks. Billy Frampton has re-invented himself as a key defender and had a career-best game with 26 possessions, nine marks, and seven rebound 50s. Jeremy Howe dominated down back on ANZAC Day with 22 disposals and 13 marks in Collingwood’s win over Essendon.

In what has been a terrific season so far, Ed Langdon continued his sensational form on Sunday night with 30 disposals and a goal, as well as 599 metres gained. Callum Mills had one of the most dominant performances of the season with 37 disposals, 11 marks, and a goal against Hawthorn.

In the ruck against Stefan Martin, Reilly O’Brien won 49-hitouts as the Crows defeated the Bulldogs. Clayton Oliver was brilliant in Melbourne’s win over Richmond with 41 disposals and 13 clearances.

Schultz had 16 disposals, 11 marks, and three goals. Charlie Cameron was electric up forward for Brisbane in their Q Clash win with four goals. Patrick Cripps tried everything he could to bring the Blues back into the contest against Fremantle, kicking three goals and collecting 32 disposals, polling all 10 coaches votes.
