Despite suffering defeat to Richmond in Round 21, a number of North Melbourne players have been recognised for strong individual performances.

Aaron Hall polled six coaches votes for his performance from the half back flank, with the veteran seemingly getting better with each passing game.

Hall accumulated a game-high 38 disposals, including 2 goal assists and 7 score involvements.

He also finished with an exceptional 790 metres gained, the game-high by a huge margin.

Jy Simpkin’s 34 disposal effort from midfield was enough for the vice-captain to poll three votes.

The midfielder finished with a game-high 12 contested possessions, as well as 7 score involvements and 5 clearances.

Luke Davies-Uniacke rounded out the votes for North, with his arguably career-best performance seeing him register two votes.

The young midfielder smashed his career-high for disposals, finishing with 38, as he was influential both in the contest and out in space.

Also finishing with 5 clearances, it wasn’t just on the offensive end that Davies-Uniacke was a threat, as he registered 6 intercepts for the game.
