Bupa TSL Round 11 Forward of the Week
Round 11 of the Bupa Tasmanian State League has been run and won, with Clarence, North Launceston and Glenorchy recording important victories.
We want to know who you considered to be the standout performers across the round.
A number of players hit the scoreboard in style during round 11, with mobile Clarence forward Chris Nield and versatile Magpie Matthew Joseph the contenders.
North Launceston skipper Brad Cox-Goodyer, after a six-goal haul, is extremely
unlucky, but underlines the impressive performances of forwards across the round.
Chris Nield (Clarence)
A handy addition to this Clarence line up in 2018, former Tiger Chris Nield has now kicked nine goals in two matches after he backed up his four-goal effort against the Demons with a five-goal performance at Windsor Park.
Nield proved to be a difficult proposition for the Launceston defence, using his mobility to get into strong positions in front of goal.
With several superb finishes resulting in goals, and a couple going through for minor scores, Nield had a busy day and looks to be a crucial weapon inside forward 50 for the Roos moving forward.
Matthew Joseph (Glenorchy)
Glenorchy sent Matthew Joseph into attack against the Tigers and it paid dividends, with the premiership Magpie kicking five goals.
After playing much of the season, and his career to date, out of defence, Joseph displayed his impressive goal sense.
In a match the Magpies simply had to win, Joseph put his best foot forward to help steer his side to it’s first win since ANZAC Day.
Joseph’s efforts highlight his importance in this Glenorchy side and his versatility, indicating that he may become a crucial weapon at Paul Kennedy’s disposal for the remainder of 2018.
