Bupa TSL Round 4 Forward of the Week

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. 

We want to know who you considered to be the premier defenders, midfielders and forwards of the round.

For the forwards, we shine the spotlight on defender turned forward Tim Mosquito and North Launceston skipper Brad Cox-Goodyer, who both performed well in impressive victories.

Tim Mosquito set the game alight on Friday night against the Tigers, moving forward after half time and kicking four goals.

The Bombers trailed by 20 points at half time before running out 27-point winners, with Mosquito’s prowess in front of goals and immense defensive pressure getting the Bombers on top.

Mosquito had barely played up forward prior to this season in the Northern Territory, but looks to be at home when combining his speed, elite ball sense and sublime skills, just like he did against the Tigers.

North Launceston skipper Brad Cox-Goodyer played a key game in Saturday’s tense win over Clarence, kicking three majors.

Cox-Goodyer drifted between the middle and forward 50, linking up with his teammates to move the ball quickly into attack.

It may not have been Cox-Goodyer’s most prolific or statistically impressive match, but his influence – underlined by three goals – should not be discounted.
