Martin in form in Blues loss
Amid the AFL’s 20 consecutive days of footy, Carlton’s Jack Martin was named one of Carlton’s best against Hawthorn last Friday afternoon at Optus Stadium.
Although the fast-starting Blues did not get the result they wanted in their first game on the west coast, Broome-born Martin was named one of Carlton’s best.
He had a great game under pressure in the midfield, amassing 15 disposals — 10 of which were contested — two goals, three score involvements, 15 pressure acts, three clearances and four tackles.
One of several Kimberley-born players, Sam Petrevski-Seton, had a solid game in defence, finishing with eight disposals, two marks and 12 pressure acts.
Meanwhile at Metricon Stadium, Derby’s Callum Ah Chee had a solid game in the back line for the Brisbane Lions in their 91-28 thumping of Essendon.
Ah Chee finished with 11 disposals, three score involvements, four marks, 13 pressure acts and four tackles.
The following day, Halls Creek’s Shane McAdam had a solid game up forward for the Adelaide Crows on Saturday, despite his team losing for the ninth time in a row.
McAdam amassed 10 disposals, two goals, five score involvements, five marks, 14 pressure acts and three tackles.
Meanwhile at Optus Stadium, Brendon Ah Chee had a quiet game in West Coast’s thrilling nine-point victory over Geelong after returning to the squad from a back injury.
Ah Chee finished with six disposals, a goal, two score involvements, seven pressure acts and two tackles.
