There were plenty of outstanding performers in the SUNS AFL Round 7 win over Collingwood at the MCG, but who is your selection for the Austworld Player of the Round?
On the MCG for the first time in 2021, the SUNS major ball winners had an outing to remember. Brandon Ellis led all comers with 35 touches and a game-high 16 marks, only just narrowing Touk Miller who put on another immense display, racking up 34 touches and 13 contested possessions.
Jack Bowes was the third SUNS player to record 30 disposals, and was influential in launching his side forward
Hugh Greenwood put in a performance to savour with an eye-watering haul of numbers including 26 disposals, game-high tallies in tackles (10) and clearances (12), as well as three centre clearances, capped off with a crucial contested mark and goal late in the third quarter.
Josh Corbett stood up when it mattered, kicking three straight goals early in the last quarter to take the SUNS lead beyond 30 points – he finished with four majors and 11 marks.
Yet again, the SUNS defensive pressure was superb, limiting the Magpies to just seven goals. In his 99th game, Sean Lemmens again was terrific in a shutdown role, keeping Jordan De Goey while 2020 Club Champion Sam Collins was also superb in marshalling the SUNS backline, making several crucial spoils and intercept marks.
Will Powell put in arguably his best performance of the season in the backline, racking up 22 disposals, 10 marks and a clearance for the afternoon.
Jack Lukosius continued his strong start to 2020 with a team-high seven inside 50s as well as four score involvements.
Charged with the ominous task of sharing ruck duties against Brodie Grundy, Caleb Graham was strong across the ground, making five hitouts and several crucial marks inside defensive 50.
