Round 10 Review

Written by Dane on May 20 2024

Gold Coast (26.8.164) defeated Geelong (15.10.100)

  1. Noah Anderson (149). Led this game comfortably, smashing out 42 disposals with 697 metres gained and 2 goals at really good DE of 88% for the game. Just 2 clangers.
  2. Jack Lukosius (129). A host of dangerous forwards on Thursday, the former high pick kicked 3 of his 5 goals in the first quarter, overall pairing that with 16 disposals and 5 marks.
  3. Matt Rowell (128). Another Sun to dominate. Rowell had 35 touches (13 contested) with 8 clearances, 1 goal, 541 metres gained and his customary 10 tackles.
  4. Sam Flanders (127). Kept the ton run going, finding 37 touches with just 1 clanger and 7 marks across half-back, pairing it with 557 metres gained.
  5. Gryan Miers (119). The best of the Cats, Miers paired 2 goals with a team high 29 touches with 595 metres gained.

Other 100+ scores: Alex Sexton (118), Bailey Humphrey (111), Ned Moyle/Max Holmes (104)

Disappointment: Goes to Tom Stewart again, just 75 this week without a single mark for the game.

Rookies: Let’s cover Sexton firstly. 32 disposals, 10 marks and just 1 clanger off half-back earned him 118 points, while also having the highest metres gained for the game with 837 of them. Respectable scores from other Suns rookies including another ton to Moyle, who had 16 disposals, 17 contested possessions, 6 clearances, 5 tackles and 42 hitouts for 104. Then the scores read Uwland (77), Day (75), Berry (70), Johnston (64) and Clohesy (49). The Cats also had their fair share of rookies. Conway got solo ruck duties and had a great game of 19 touches (18 contested) with 11 clearances and 25 hitouts for 90 points, while Dempsey (76) had a career best 25 touches. There was also Mullin (49), Neale (34) and the subbed on Clark (15).

Injuries: Mac Andrew was subbed off with a leg concern, while it Cam Guthrie who was subbed off for the Cats.


Sydney (17.15.117) defeated Carlton (9.11.65)

  1. Chad Warner (172). Was deadset dominant, side stepping his way to a career high from 28 touches (10 contested) plus 3 goals, 4 tackles and 561 metres gained.
  2. Nic Newman (147). Easily the best of the Blues, against his former side, Newman had 668 metres gained from his 32 touches and 8 marks across half-back.
  3. James Rowbottom (127). Had a massive 16 tackles next to his 19 touch (11 contested), 6 clearances, 1 goal evening.
  4. Isaac Heeney (121). Another huge performance, finishing with 24 touches (10 contested) with 8 tackles, 5 clearances and 3 goals.
  5. Brodie Grundy (117). Another great game from Grundy, 21 touches (15 contested) with 8 tackles, 7 clearances and 32 hitouts to round out the top 5.

Other 100+ scores: James Jordon (114), Blake Acres (102)

Disappointment: 28 touches with 10 marks and a game high 721 metres gained for Errol Gulden resulted in just 82 points, with DE and clangers holding him back. Other premiums in Cripps and Walsh also stagnated in the 80’s.

Rookies: Nothing to note really, Fantasia is back and still not pumping out anything of note, just 41 this week, while Carroll was subbed on for 33.

Injuries: Fox (shoulder) and Weitering (thigh) were both subbed off around halfway through the game.


Collingwood (12.6.78) defeated Adelaide (11.8.74)

  1. Reilly O’Brien (132). Best score in this contest came from ROB, his 14 disposals (10 contested), 4 tackles and 34 hitouts doing the job and securing a season high score.
  2. Izak Rankine (125). Enjoyed plenty of midfield time, finding a career best 30 touches (16 contested) with 8 clearances, 1 goal and a game best 699 metres gained.
  3. Mitch Hinge (124). Massive effort and continues to be a reliable scoring source, averaging 96. 26 touches, 7 marks and 1 goal in this one, also all at 96% DE without a clanger.
  4. Matt Crouch (121). Sixth ton so far for an average of 109. 34 disposals in this contest plus 7 tackles for the game.
  5. Scott Pendlebury (118). Rounds out the top five as the only player from the winning team, his 30 disposals and 2 majors leading to his fourth ton in a row.

Other 100+ scores: Jack Crisp (112), John Noble (111), Jordan Dawson (107), Nick Daicos (105), Josh Daicos (100)

Disappointment: Really quiet game from Rory Laird (65), just 22 touches for the game and not much else.

Rookies: Not much for the Crows, just Hamill (68) who was pretty good, using his 14 touches at 100% DE. The Pies had the popular pickup in Sullivan play his third game, he finished on 51 from 13 touches and 5 tackles, while Richards played his second game for 12 disposals, 5 tackles and 1 goal, resulting in 60 points. Macrae (51), Harrison (39) and McInnes (25) rounded out the rest.

Injuries: Hoskin-Elliot and Rankine are both listed with a hamstring, while McInnes was listed with concussion. Sholl was the initial sub for the Crows.


GWS (6.7.43) defeated by Western Bulldogs (8.22.70)

  1. Adam Treloar (144). Another monster game from Treloar who is averaging a career best 117 so far. 35 touches (23 contested) with 6 clearances and 4 tackles.
  2. Harry Himmelberg (139). 30 disposals and 12 marks down back, all while running at 83% DE with just 1 clanger and 575 metres gained.
  3. Ed Richards (118). Stayed in the midfield and found 27 touches (12 contested) plus 10 clearances and 673 metres gained, a team best.
  4. Nick Haynes (116). Nice game from Haynes. Hauled in 12 marks and had 25 touches in what was at times, a very slippery contest.
  5. Jesse Hogan (114). One of two Giants to kick 3 majors, Hogan had his fourth ton of the year from those goals as well as 14 touches and 7 marks.

Other 100+ scores: Lachie Whitfield (112), Bailey Williams (104)

Disappointment: Most of the big guns failed to go big here. Green (95), Bontempelli (93), English (91) and Dale (88) not at their best in the wet conditions.

Rookies: Thomas (84) had a lean few weeks but if you held, hopefully he can produce a few scores like this to build back up. Wehr (48) only had 10 touches while forwards Cadman (27) and Jones (8), who did a hamstring, were hardly sighted. Second gamer Freijah had 12 touches and 4 marks for 64, a nice second up effort, while Darcy continues to roll with 12 disposals, 6 marks, 4 tackles, 2 goals and 84 points. Garcia (51), the returning Cleary (50) and Gallagher (24) were the remainders to cover.

Injuries: Jones for the Giants was subbed out early with a hamstring, while Garcia was a late tactical sub for the Bulldogs.


St Kilda (8.7.55) defeated by Fremantle (9.18.72)

  1. Rowan Marshall (169). Back to back scores in the 160’s means its jump on this week before he gets back to 600K and above. 31 disposals (18 contested) with 8 clearances, 7 marks, 9 tackles and 39 hitouts. 
  2. Luke Jackson (154). Not to be completely outdone, Jackson kept up with Marshall, collecting 25 touches himself plus 6 tackles, 21 contested possessions, 39 hitouts and 10 clearances.
  3. Jordan Clark (151). Career high score from Clark who is having a breakout year. 29 touches, 82% DE, 1 clanger, a game-high 723 metres gained plus 8 tackles and 8 marks.
  4. Luke Ryan (122). Another week done and Ryan produced again. 27 disposals, no clangers, 13 marks and 539 metres gained.
  5. Hayden Young (121). Rounds out the top five with a very nice game that included 27 disposals, 8 tackles and 5 clearances plus 526 metres gained.

Other 100+ scores: Andrew Brayshaw (120), Caleb Serong (118), Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera (110), Jack Sinclair (110), Riley Bonner (100)

Disappointment: Fyfe (63) and Steele (86) continue to not be at their early season best.

Rookies: Sharp is first off the blocks here, his score of 89 came from 20 touches that had 623 metres gained and 1 goal next to it, while Wilson kept his good form ticking over with 18 disposals and 7 marks for 75, both have been great early picks. Not much else to cover, the subbed on Emmett (56) leading Voss (47), Draper (13) and Collard (9).

Injuries: Frederick came off with concussion, but that was the only injury. Sharman the sub for the Saints.


Brisbane (26.7.163) defeated Richmond (6.8.44)

  1. Lachie Neale (162). Feasted on the Tigers for his second score of 160+ this year. 36 disposals, 11 marks, 584 metres gained, 5 clearances, virtually unopposed all game.
  2. Dayne Zorko (161). Talking about virtually unopposed, Zorko produced yet another huge score thanks to 35 touches and 15 marks plus 1 major and 85% DE.
  3. Joe Daniher (134). 20 touches for Joe plus 11 marks to go along with it, he roamed up the ground too and had 577 metres gained.
  4. Kai Lohmann (128). Best score of his young career. Lohmann had an equal team high 5 goals from his 14 touches and 7 marks that went @ 92% DE.
  5. Oscar McInerney (120). Rounds out an all Brisbane top five thanks to 11 disposals, 2 goals and 33 hitouts, many of which were to advantage. 

Other 100+ scores: Josh Dunkley (115), Darcy Wilmot (113), Toby Nankervis (105), Daniel Rioli/Callum Ah Chee (100)

Disappointment: Saw some teams bring in Short this week, but 54 was his return as the Lions dominated.

Rookies: Since Lohmann had had his time, the next best was a tie between Morris and Reville on 73 each. 2 goals and 9 touches for the former, 12 touches, 7 marks and 1 goal for the latter. Answerth (56) had 13 touches @ 90% DE and Brain was once again subbed on, scoring 21. The Tigers had plenty of rookies. McAuliffe returned to the side and was the best of them with 62 from 20 disposals, leading Lefau (54), Cumberland (51), Ralphsmith (41), Brown (40), Sonsie (34), debutant Green (24) and Coulthard (15).

Injuries: Lefau (jaw) and Mansell (head) added to the already massive Tigers injury list, while McCluggage was the tactical sub for the Lions.


Essendon (16.10.106) defeated North Melbourne (10.6.66)

  1. Luke Davies-Unaicke (152). Underpriced currently for what he can do, LDU produced a season best thanks to 27 touches (10 contested) with 7 clearances, 2 goals and just 1 clanger.
  2. Matt Guefli (128). Career high score in his 100th game, Guefli was dangerous up forward with 6 shots on goal for 3 majors, pairing it with 14 touches and 5 marks.
  3. Peter Wright (119). Had some time in the ruck with 11 hitouts, but it was his 15 touches, 9 marks and 4 goals that really boosted his score.
  4. Harry Sheezel (117). Back to the tons this week. Had 32 touches in the middle of the ground plus 9 marks and 471 metres gained.
  5. Zac Fisher (116). Backed up his 140 last week with another fine game. 87% DE and just 1 clanger from his 31 touches and 11 marks playing loosely across the backline.

Other 100+ scores: Andrew McGarth (104), Jye Caldwell/Dyson Heppell (103), Jake Kelly (101), Nic Martin (100)

Disappointment: Purely because it was his first sub-ton, it goes to Merrett (94) who had Shiels for company on Sunday.

Rookies: Covering the debut first, it was Will Dawson for the Kangaroos who got a run around in the backline, finding 5 touches for a score of 35. Pink (52) returned to the side, while Duursma (35), Lazzaro (30) and Davey Jnr (44) were the others to play.

Injuries: A hamstring is listed for Miller Bergman, but it was Lazzaro and Shiel who were the initial subs.


Port Adelaide (11.14.80) defeated Hawthorn (12.7.79)

  1. Blake Hardwick (180). Slotted 4 majors in the first quarter alone, finishing with 5 for the game. Paired it with 23 touches (13 contested), 6 marks, 4 tackles and 526 metres gained for a career high score. 
  2. Dan Houston (148). Best on for the Power. 22 touches, 8 marks, 10 tackles and 3 goals led him to his best score of the year. Averaging 113. 
  3. Will Day (142). Also a career best score here. Day was important all game, finishing with 27 touches (13 contested) plus 5 tackles, 1 goal and 534 metres gained.
  4. Zak Butters (127). Incredible last quarter , he found 17 of his 32 touches in the 4th to help steer the Power home. Also had 8 clearances, 6 tackles and 545 metres gained.
  5. Jason Horne-Francis/Karl Amon (117). Another ton for JHF, he found 27 touches (15 contested) with 6 clearances and 2 goals, while Amon dropped another ton, his fourth on the year, thanks to 26 touches, 92% DE and a game best, 719 metres gained.

Other 100+ scores: Lloyd Meek (112), Kane Farrell (104), Massimo D’Ambrosio (102), Williem Drew (100)

Disappointment: Goes to Dylan Moore (66), a quiet day by his standards.

Rookies: First gamer in this one too by the name of Ed Phillips, who was a pretty popular name in the pre-season. Nice first up effort too with 10 touches @ 100% DE for 64 points. Dear (56), Serong (50) and Watson (46) rounded out the Hawks. Visentini (94) is doing his best to keep the number 1 ruck spot, another good game of 29 hitouts and 8 touches, while Sinn (49) and Mead (65) also got a game.

Injuries: Ollie Wines was unfortunately subbed out with a heart issue, hope all is well there. Jiath the tactical sub for the Hawks.


West Coast (16.9.105) defeated Melbourne (10.10.70)

  1. Jake Waterman (142). Averaging 101 and co-leading the Coleman after round 10, it’s been a great year for Waterman. Snagged another 5 goals in this one plus 17 touches and a game best 13 marks.
  2. Harley Reid (138). Massive again, snagging 2 goals from 21 touches and recording 7 clearances in a week where he was moved on by many.
  3. Tim Kelly (128). Great performance from Kelly in the middle, his 30 touches was a game best. Also had 14 contested, 8 clearances and 551 metres gained.
  4. Clayton Oliver (124). A popular pickup this week and next as well as his price is still very juicy. Had 29 touches (20 contested) plus 9 clearances and 8 tackles for the game.
  5. Jeremy McGovern (117). Did his usual, intercepting a bunch of ball and using it well to round out the top five. 23 touches, 8 marks, 82% DE, 542 metres gained to be exact.

Other 100+ scores: Tom Barrass (113), Liam Duggan/Max Gawn (109), Brady Hough (108), Jamie Cripps (102)

Disappointment: A popular pickup this week but it was a pretty quiet game for Petracca, just 20 touches and 87 points.

Rookies: Just Chesser (59) and the subbed on Dewar (6) for West Coast, while the Demon rookies were led by Howes (53), then Woewodin (47) and rounded out by Windsor (35).

Injuries: Clean sheet for the Eagles, Edwards the eventual sub. Lever listed with concussion for the Demons.
