Wood and Pemberton have also tackled hard to be third and fifth for tackles with 17 and 14 respectively, while Wood has the most loose ball gets in the league with 21. Emerald’s Jordan Donabel managed 9 clearances in their one game to be equal-fourth and Gembrook-Cockatoo ruckman Colin Bastow managed 29 hitouts to be fifth.

Brad Raaymakers and Josh O’Brien have been getting it out of Belgrave’s underfire defence, first and fourth with 25 and 11 rebound 50’s, while Raaymakers and teammate Michael Sproule are equal second for spoils with 8.
