Defender Charlie Comben was the next highest-rated Roo on the field.

In similar fashion to Maley, the 22-year-old notched 13 marks and 22 disposals to earn six votes from North Melbourne coach Tom Lynch and Carlton coach Luke Power.

Blake Drury was a standout at half-forward and was awarded his first votes of the season after tallying 21 possessions, eight inside 50s, and two majors.

A game-high 29 disposals from winger Connor Downie saw him pick up a vote, while Carlton's Marc Pittonet (eight votes) and Alex Cincotta (three) polled for the visitors.
