Ben Cunnington’s excellent game against the Bulldogs has been recognised by the senior coaches.
No player on the field had more disposals than Cunnington (33), with the performance giving the North midfielder eight AFLCA votes.
Cunnington also had 10 clearances to lead the midfield on the night.
The only other Roo to gain votes was Ben Brown. His four-goal haul earned two votes, with no-one else managing more than two goals on the night.
It’s the second game Brown has polled in for the season, following on from his two votes against Geelong in Round 2.
