Round 17 of the Bupa Tasmanian State League season has come and gone, and with the business end of the season fast approaching, we want to know who you considered to be the premier players of the round.
We now look at the forward line, where two genuine superstars of the competition did what they do best.
Brad Cox-Goodyer (North Launceston)
The North Launceston skipper was in ominious touch against the Magpies on Saturday afternoon, booting six goals – including five to half time and three in the second term – to set the side up for a valuable victory.
Although Cox-Goodyer was the beneficiary of two goals that resulted from 50-metre penalties, Cox-Goodyer looked on from the outset and exerted his influence through both the midfield and forward 50, playing a key role in getting the Bombers on top around the ground.
Cox-Goodyer finished the game off the field due to a tight hamstring but had well and truly made his mark on the contest. Bomber fans will be sweating on his fitness for a clash with Clarence this weekend.
Dylan Riley (Launceston)
Continuing his impressive form as a forward, Launceston utility Dylan Riley had a huge influence on the game against Lauderdale.
Riley’s two goals on the stat sheet don’t do justice to his dominance of the contest, with the former Devonport star taking countless contested marks in a strong overhead display.
Equally capable of competing at ground level, Riley is a bona fide star of the competition and after playing a starring role across half back earlier in the campaign, is arguably playing his best football for the season as a forwrad in recent weeks.
