Charlie Ballard is this week’s Player of the Round, presented by Ultra Stainless Security.

Ballard had one of his best games in his young career on the weekend, finishing with 22 disposals and a colossal 15 marks for the day.

What was even more impressive was his ball use out of the backline, with Ballard recording a disposal efficiency of 86.4% and rarely missing a target by foot. 

Ballard had a game-high eight rebound 50’s against Collingwood, getting the ball moving out of defence for the SUNS.

In his second-year, Ballard has developed immensely and performed well when asked to play on bigger forwards when required this season.
