Bupa TSL Round 14 Back of the Week

With round 14 now behind us we want you to let us know who you thought were the best performers across the round of football. 

We start in the back half, where two key defenders stood up to play crucial roles in their respective wins.


Harrison Gunther (Glenorchy)

The gun forward-turned-defender has stood up in his new role this season, emerging as a key pillar in one of the competition’s best defences.

Capable of being an offensive and defensive asset, Gunther spent time on both Jamieson House and Dylan Riley on the weekend, restricting the influence of both while also setting up attacking forays out of the back half.

Glenorchy has conceded an average of just 43 points across the last three weeks, with Gunther an integral part of this impressive effort.

A star up forward and now a star in defence. Gunther is a significant asset for Paul Kennedy and the Magpies.

Connor Young (North Launceston)

An unheralded figure in a star-studded North Launceston line up, Connor Young is as reliable as they come, and delivered a strong performance in his first game back from injury.

The Northern Bombers moved the ball methodically out of defence, with Young and his teammates proving resolute in defence, with Lauderdale often struggling to find a clear path to goal.

Young was an integral part of the Northern Bombers’ clean and well-executed movement out of the back half, with patient, smart play out of the back half combining well with swift attacking forays from the middle of the ground.

Rarely beaten and a good user, Young is a player who often goes without plaudits, but certainly deserves them.
