POWERADE BREAKTHROUGH PLAYER
Round 6: Sam McInerney (North Adelaide)
Tallying 18 disposals against Adelaide on Saturday, the emerging utility kicked one of his two goals at a vital stage in the fourth quarter. Originally from Jamestown-Peterborough Football Club, McInerney has played an unheralded role in the Roosters’ revival this season.
Round 5: Jackson Hately (Central)
The Bulldogs’ consistent midfielder again found plenty of the ball, this time collecting 21 disposals and seven tackles in his team’s win against Glenelg.
Round 4: Jack Lukosius (Eagles)
Kicked three goals in the last term to finish with 3.3 to go with his 14 disposals and 11 marks against the Bays. The talented teenager’s field kicking was also a highlight.
Round 3: Tom Schott (Glenelg)
In just his sixth game of Macca’s League, Schott racked up 34 disposals and booted two goals in the Bays’ victory against the Redlegs at Gliderol Stadium.
Round 2: Jake Westbrook (Eagles)
Originally from the Paskeville Football Club on Yorke Peninsula, Westbrook provided great drive from half-back in the Eagles’ win against Central District. The 21-year-old – who is the cousin of 2006 Eagles premiership player David Westbrook – finished with 22 disposals, five marks and five rebound 50s.
Round 1: Levi Proude (Port Adelaide)
Levi made an impression in his Macca’s League debut to finish with 28 disposals, six marks, six tackles, seven clearances and a goal against Adelaide.
