Andrew Brayshaw 8.5: Collected 27 touches at 81 per cent efficiency but also pushed back into defence and win a holding the ball free kick. One of the best two-way mids in the game.
Lachie Schultz 8.5: Made an instant impact in his first game back from a COVID layoff, finding space and generating six scoring shots and nine score involvements.
Will Brodie 8.5: Amazing what someone can achieve when you focus on what they can, not can’t do. Barely wastes a possession.
Rory Lobb 8.5: Contested marks, goals, goal assists, nine score involvements, it’s always a thrill when Lobb takes a game by the throat.
Brennan Cox 8.5: Did not miss a target all night but did his best work in the air, reeling in more marks than any of his teammates.
Alex Pearce 8.5: Another exceptional lockdown performance, keeping Harry McKay to one goal. Six of his nine touches were intercept possessions.
Luke Ryan 8: Provided plenty of aerial support to Cox and Pearce but was even better rebounding the Dockers out of defence.
Jordan Clark 8: Pushed hard from defence into attack, covering more ground than any other Docker in his most productive display this season.
Sam Switkowski 8: Piled on the pressure as good as anyone, finishing with 28 pressure acts and two goals in a masterful display of what it takes to be an elite small forward.
David Mundy 7.5: Won a clearance with every third possession he collected in a typically classy and timeless display.
Blake Acres 7.5: His growth this season has taken many by surprise. Fans will remember his spectacular goal but he provided plenty of drive and run from the wing.
Caleb Serong 7: Got himself in good positions to receive the ball and put his head over the footy.
Michael Walters 7: Back to his damaging best after rediscovering his finishing touch in attack.
Sean Darcy 7: Enjoyed a leg up in the ruck and around the ground when Pittonet exited the game early with injury only to suffer a head knock late.
Griffin Logue 7: Didn’t put a foot wrong in defence as he fights to retain his spot while opposition clubs circle.
Brandon Walker 6: Found the ball with ease but didn’t gain as much ground as he would’ve liked.
Travis Colyer 6: Highlight was a bullet pass inside 50 to Lobb but his willingness to take on the game and use his speed to catch Carlton’s defence off guard was impressive game awareness.
James Aish 6: Mr Fix It is how he was described by senior coach Justin Longmuir post match and it’s the perfect summation, helping cover the loss of Chapman and Young.
Matt Taberner 5: Had to push a bit higher up the ground to impact the game after a career-best performance last week but still had some impressive moments, lowering his eyes sending his side inside 50.
Darcy Tucker 4: Struggled to adapt to the pace of the game after a couple of weeks on the sidelines, turning the ball over five times, but will be better for the run.
Nathan O’Driscoll 3: Not his most polished game, kicking the ball out on the full twice but continues to build experience at AFL level.
Michael Frederick 1: Had one big moment running back with the flight of the ball but was otherwise a quiet outing which produced two turnovers from two touches.
Bailey Banfield 0: Didn’t touch the ball after coming on late as medical sub but didn’t need to. The damage was already done.
