Round four of the Bupa Tasmanian State League season has been run and won, with Lauderdale and Glenorchy standing tall under Friday night lights and North Launceston winning a thriller at Blundstone Arena.

Brayden Webb (Glenorchy) 

Celebrating his 150th match in the famous black and white, Glenorchy skipper Brayden Webb was at his typically competitive best, patrolling the midfield in the Magpies’ 87-point win over North Hobart at KGV.

Under Friday night lights, Webb combined well with the likes of Rhys Mott and Callen Daly to give his side control around the contest.

Webb kicked the final goal of the game, and took a strong mark in the dying stages in a showing that displayed his typical leadership style.

Lachlan Clifford (Tigers) 

His side may not have come out on top, but it is difficult to deny how influential Tigers midfielder Lachy Clifford was in Friday night’s clash against Lauderdale.

Clifford was dominant in the middle of the ground, racking up plenty of centre clearances, particularly in the opening half.

Clifford combined well with the likes of Ryan Matthews and Will Campbell through the middle, with these strong performances in the middle of the ground playing a strong role in the Tigers jumping out to a 20-point lead at the main break.

As a former Mariners captain, Clifford is an emerging leader at the Twin Ovals. Expect him to continue playing a big role as the season progresses.
