Arguably coming off the best of his six seasons, Sam Day again proved a valuable commodity for coach Rodney Eade in 2016 as he swung between both ends of the ground.

Starting as a key forward alongside Tom Lynch, Day was a strong presence, kicking goals and handing them off, but in round five was forced to move to defence. The South Australian did a superb job at full-back under a barrage of opposition inside 50s, and although he took his time to mesh alongside Lynch and Peter Wright, once he returned to the forward line, he continued to helped his team. Day will likely start 2017 as the third forward, but don’t be surprised to see him pushed back when needed.
