Round 6

Geelong beat Brisbane
3. Patrick Dangerfield
2. Sam Menegola
1. Tom Hawkins
Dangerfield continued his resurgence as Geelong ran over Brisbane in the second half. Menegola and Joel Selwood will battle Hawkins, who matched the superb Harris Andrews, for minor votes.

Collingwood beat Hawthorn
3. Adam Treloar
2. Brodie Mihocek
1. Darcy Moore
Treloar could have six votes from two games, while Mihocek continues his fine form. Moore was a rock at the back in Jeremy Howe’s absence.

Fremantle beat St Kilda
3. Michael Walters
2. Rory Lobb
1. Andrew Brayshaw
Walters overcame a few blunders to seal the win for the Dockers, aided by some strong marks from Lobb and another solid game from Brayshaw. Nat Fyfe is also threat with two goals in a fairly quiet game up forward.

West Coast beat Adelaide
3. Tim Kelly
2. Jeremy McGovern
1. Dom Sheed
Adelaide can play anyone into form at the moment, and Kelly, Sheed and Elliot Yeo racked up some of their best numbers for the year. McGovern is a welcome addition for the Eagles.

Melbourne beat Gold Coast
3. Max Gawn
2. Christian Petracca
1. Jack Viney
Gawn must be relieved that his dominance finally got his side a win. Petracca butchered the ball but kicked the sealing goal. Viney pips Clayton Oliver, whose disposal continues to disappoint, for the one vote.

Essendon beat North Melbourne
3. David Zaharakis
2. Andrew McGrath
1. Jordan Ridley
Zaharakis dropped in and out of the game, but his three goals should get him the votes. Ridley was fantastic and halted numerous dangerous attacks with his intercept marking, but McGrath’s midfield numbers may get him the two votes. Jy Simpkin was brilliant again.

Port Adelaide beat GWS
3. Sam Powell-Pepper
2. Dan Houston
1. Lachie Whitfield
This game is a bit of a lottery, as no one stood out for Port Adelaide. Whitfield had a lot of the ball but wasn’t as damaging as he can be, while Kane Farrell’s kicking was superb but Powell-Pepper and Houston were more consistent throughout the match.

Richmond beat Sydney
3. Callum Mills
2. Kane Lambert
1. Jordan Short
In a dour game, Mills marked everything that came his way. Lambert, Short and Kamdyn McIntosh will contend for minor votes. I’ve gone for the better known Lambert, who ran well into space.

Carlton beat Western Bulldogs
3. Jack Martin
2. Ed Curnow
1. Eddie Betts
Bailey Smith, Marcus Bontempelli and Jack Macrae led the stats, but a team performance got Carlton the win. Martin shone again and should get rewarded after a couple of good performances in losses. Betts’ last-quarter goals were in junk time, but would’ve stuck in the umpires’ memory.
