Bupa TSL Round 7 Ruck of the Week

Round seven of the Bupa Tasmanian State League season saw a nail-biting finish at Windsor Park, the determined Roos record another crucial win and the Northern Bombers prevail in the Grand Final replay. 

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

We now take a look at the big men, with versatile Roo Ryan Bailey maintaining his hot form and Glenorchy big man Cameron Duffy delivering another solid display.

Ryan Bailey (Clarence) 

Perhaps the form player in the competition, Bailey has delivered consecutive best on ground performances as Clarence begin to generate some serious momentum in 2018.

Bailey is terrific aerially while also a fierce and mobile competitor around the ground, making him almost an extra midfielder and a difficult match up for opposition sides. Hugh Johnston competed well for the Tigers, but there was no doubting the influence of Ryan Bailey, who is quickly emerging as the ‘Roos most important player with first choice ruck Wade Wall sidelined.

Glenorchy star Cameron Duffy continued his strong start to 2018, controlling the ruck contest against Launceston.

Aided somewhat by the absence of suspended Blue Hamish Leedham, Duffy dominated the hit outs, particularly early, while also playing a key role in the final term as his side almost stormed home to victory.
