Noah Anderson has secured the SUNS’ first perfect 10 coaches votes from Saturday’s narrow defeat against Melbourne at Heritage Bank Stadium.
Both Stuart Dew and Demons coach Simon Goodwin rated Anderson’s game, which included 37 touches and 18 contested possessions, as best on ground.
It highlights the 22-year-old’s sparkling run of form having now secured coaches votes in four consecutive matches, including 28 of a maximum 30 in his last three outings, which seems him climb to equal ninth in the AFLCA Champion Player of the Year Award standings.
Four SUNS teammates also earned votes from the coaches with Matt Rowell securing four votes, Wil Powell three, David Swallow two and key defender Charlie Ballard receiving one vote.
