2. Devon Robertson

Dion Prestia was dropped in the middle of the opener, limiting his impact in the first half. Then Prestia continued to contribute after a possession, including a goal late in the third period. 6

3. Joe Daniher

My word, what a rollercoaster game. He had Robbie Tara for company earlier before Oscar McInerney was asked to pinch-hit on the bench in his absence. He looked shaky at times, highlighted by a terrific third-quarter run to Morris Rioli. “Joe Danier has got to be better than this,” David King told Fox Footy. He goes behind and takes the ball off the first player[Darcy Wilmot]and takes the ball out of his hands in slow play…you need more from your core players. He then kicked a spectacular long-range field goal three quarters later and followed up with a brilliant field goal early in the fourth quarter. But just when Lincoln McCarthy had a chance to win the game for the Lions, Daniher gave away a free kick to push on… and then scored the game-winning goal. Bonkers. 7

4. Cal Ah Chee

Started as a sub but had to wait a few minutes to splash into the game after Oscar McInerney was sent off. He was sent to the forward line – rather than the defensive 50 – and had an immediate impact, often breaking free and scoring. After a quarter of an hour it was barely visible. 4

5. Mitch Robinson

He started on the wing next to Jack Ross. In the second period, Stylus Tyler Sonsi scored a goal and called a silly penalty in the third quarter. He finished with 10 touchdowns. 4

6. Hugh McCluggage

all of them Room. Another strong final after two great games last year. He showed plenty of class and composure with his hands and feet in the first quarter when he kicked the Lions’ first goal of the game. He finished with 25 touchdowns, 11 sacks and six interceptions. 8

7. Jarrod Berry

He was on the wing next to Camdin McIntosh in the opening centre. He had a couple of important moments in the 14-inning game. 5

9. To you Nelle

Epic Colossal. One of the grand finals. Clean and strong on the coal face, polished outside. He had nine of Brisbane’s 23 clearances at half-time and finished with a career-best 15 clearances – the second most clearances in a final to date – with 39 clearances, 21 contested possessions and nine score involvements. David King told Fox Footy: “It’s a one-man battle there with Lachie Neale, he’s been unbelievable… he’s been a problem all night (for Richmond). He barely got off the ground in the second half. A rare game that pulls the team to the line. We don’t often give a perfect score, but this one deserves one. 10

10. Daniel Rich

He turned forward with a few tigers. He drew a stunning daisy-cutter shot in the third term that set up Lincoln McCarthy’s first major. Most yards gained by any Lions player, 73 percent came on foot. 7

11. Lincoln McCarthy

Unsettled in the first half but got better as the game went on and scored in the third. Finished with 10 touches and seven inside 50s. 5

15. Dayne Zorko

He showed some terrific poise in space early on, including a long kick that set up Cal Ah Chin’s first-quarter goal. Then there were nine disposals, two clearances and five inside 50s in the second term alone. Finished with 22 touchdowns and seven inside 50s. 7

18. Cade Coleman

He spent time on Maurice Rioli, who was fooled for a field goal in the third quarter. He didn’t get much room to show off his impressive kicking skills, but he pulled away with seven takedowns in the final. 5

20. Jackson Pre

He overcame most of his 12 losses to center back. 4

23. Charlie Cameron

Electricity. He showed great pressure in the first period and was rewarded for his efforts in the second period, scoring a laughable goal over his shoulder before starting another in the fourth period in two individual brilliance starts. He then pulled off one of the best assists of the year, tapping the ball behind his head to set up Eric Hipwood’s goal. He pushed hard on the ground to engage and then steered hard back, becoming dangerous at ground level. Six of his 11 games have ended in a Lions win. 7

25. Dan McStay

Collingwood wants him as a key forward on a five-year, $3 million deal, but could he add to the ruck’s burgeoning stock? After Oscar McInerney’s elimination, he faced Noah Balta for the company, before turning into an eclipse. But he was more involved in the game, finishing with a career-high 23 games with one goal, nine assists and six tackles. 8

27. Darcy Gardiner

He had a terrible match against Dustin Martin in the opener. In the second term he produced a terrific conversion for Noah Cumberland to score. At times they looked vulnerable. 4

30. Eric Hipwood

He scored some fantastic goals in the first half. He competed hard and gave the Lions a lot of confidence in his first term. A big start to the game with two spectacular shots, the first from a tight angle and the second from beyond the 50m arc on the quarter time siren. Finished with 3.1 out of 11 removals. 6

31. Harris Andrews

He went straight to Tom Lynch. He did well early on, but the Tigers’ star was caught trying to end the game at 3.2. He had six interceptions and used the ball well. 5

33. Zach Bailey

He helped spark the Lions in the second half. Switched between half forward and midfield. A bounced clearance from the Brisbane center looked dangerous in the middle, leading to a goal square. It ended with 24 possessions and 11 contested possessions. 7

36. Rhys Mathison

He started on the bench before staying on the ball. He finished with 14 tackles and nine contested possessions. 5

37. Brandon Starcevich

He spent time against Noah Cumberland and then Shay Bolton and wore the latter like a glove as he ran around to be an offensive presence, with eight disposals and two marks in the first term. Luke Hodge told Channel 7: “He was physical and pushed him every time he got close to him. Bolton starred in the first half but had just three touches in the second half so he pointed to Starcevic. 7

40. Jack Payne

He made the play against Jack Rialt, who scored crucial goals all night. I didn’t use the ball well with my feet. 4

44. Darcy Wilmot

Are we sure this is the first game? Rich in the light of the end. Two very clean handballs to start his AFL career and then kicked his first goal after a 50m penalty in the second round. His celebration was infectious and lifted the crowd of Gabba. 5

46. ​​Oscar McInerney

The in-form ruckman’s night ended after just 99 seconds of play. Released after a head-on collision. N/A
