Bupa TSL Round 7 Forward 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 shift our attention to the goal-kickers, with a premiership hero and a rising young gun both standing tall.


Giacomo Millucci (Launceston)

IC: Scott Gelston, The Examiner

At just 18 years of age, Giacomo Millucci is establishing himself as a crucial part of the competition’s most potent forward groups, kicking three majors in a thrilling win over Glenorchy at Windsor Park.

Millucci is already a joint leader of the Mercury Cup goal-kicking tally, having kicked 17 goals in four matches after kicking 14 for Devonport in the TSL last year.

Millucci is an excitement machine with the ability to take marks and compete at ground level, as displayed on Saturday afternoon.




Tom Bennett (North Launceston)

IC: Andrew Woodgate

North Launceston star Tom Bennett kicked four goals in a big Grand Final replay win, moving to 17 goals for the season.

Bennett is a crucial part of a dangerous forward group, and after booting 29 goals last season, is starting to look like an even more dangerous avenue to goal this season.

With two RACT Insurance player of the year votes for his troubles, Bennett now sits just one vote behind Daniel Joseph on the leaderboard.
