Jay Foon (North Launceston)    

An established premiership star, Foon provided plenty of drive out of the back half for the reigning premiers, linking up with the team’s raft of gun midfielders to generate attacking foray after attacking foray.

Foon even propelled himself inside 50 to kick a goal, heaping further pain on the Southern Bombers.

Foon, who played his 100th game earlier this season, may not always be the first Northern Bomber that springs to mind, but he is undoubtedly one of the side’s most important players, as evidenced by another strong display in round seven.

Chris Savage (Launceston) 

Chris Savage played a crucial role for the Blues across half back, finding plenty of the football and almost always remaining involved in the contest to help the Blues secure a thrilling one-point win over the Magpies.

A competitive beast, the Launceston skipper was at his ferocious best at Windsor Park, displaying great hunger and leadership in the back half.

Combined with the skillful Dylan Riley and the consistent Joe Boyce, Savage is another crucial cog in one of the competition’s finest defensive groups.
