Now that round 13 has been run and won, we want to know who you considered to be the most impressive performers across the weekend’s Bupa Tasmanian State League action.
We start by looking at the defenders, with one of the competition’s big guns and a young Tiger standing tall.
Daniel Joseph (Glenorchy)
As he has so often done since returning to the black and white, Daniel Joseph patrolled the back half with poise and great skill.
Up against a small and nimble Clarence forward six, Joseph highlighted his ability to play defensively and offensively on small and tall opponents., with the Magpies restricting the ‘Roos to just three goals for the game, all of which came in a short five minute period late in the second term.
Arguably the best kick in the competition, Joseph’s composure and deathly execution out of the back half was critical in Glenorchy gaining ascendancy, particularly when assessing how detrimental the blustery conditions had been to others on the ground.
Another stellar performance from one of the competition’s very best players.
Micah Reynolds (Tigers)
Talk about a baptism of fire. 19-year-old Micah Reynolds, playing in just his second senior game, faced one of Tasmanian football’s toughest tasks on Saturday, being handed the job of minding Launceston star Mitch Thorp.
Thorp, the competition’s leading goalkicker, kicked a bag of eight goals last time he played the Tigers and would have been licking his lips at the return fixture, but was blanketed by Reynolds, finishing with just the one major for the afternoon.
Reynolds competed well in the air, spoiling plenty of attacking forays with his leap, strength and ability to read the play.
Few would have known about Micah Reynolds prior to round 13, but he looms as a key figure to watch across the back half of the season.
