Tsitas previously topped the stats in Round 5 and Round 7, with the former seeing the Croc as the first to reach the joint season high of 41 disposals. Against Wanderers he was once again around the ball more than anyone else with 21 kicks and eight handballs, with his other stats including seven Crocs Tsitas tops stats again in great display marks, five tackles and six clearances. Next in line was fellow Wanderers frequent ball-getter Dane McFarlane, with a showing of 27 touches, including 20 kicks and seven handballs, while also taking nine marks. Equalling the 27 disposals was Jackson Geary, playing his first game of the season for St Marys and looking right at home against Palmerston. The past Chaney Medal winner hadnt played for the Saints since December 14, 2019, but with 14 kicks and 13 handballs, Geary is likely to play a massive role for the inform side as it looks ahead to the finals. A duo of Buffaloes also found their way into the top five, putting in massive individual performances despite their sides heavy 20.7 (127) to 5.10 (40) loss to Nightcliff. Ryan Pendlebury pulled off a 26-disposal game with 12 kicks and 14 handballs, with his efforts paying dividends in the second half to stem the Tiger tide of goals. Putting in a strong display at his side was Lachlan McKenzie with 25 touches, including 20 kicks and five handballs, while also making eight marks. Key to Nightcliffs success over Buffs was the work of Jackson Bowen in the ruck, with the man in the middle coming up with 28 hit-outs, more than anyone else in the round. The Tigers were well in control at halftime, with 17 goals already to their name and 33 entries into the inside 50. However, a temporary twist of fortunes saw Nightcliffs scoring come to a standstill through the third quarter with only four inside 50 entries compared to 16 by Buffs. NATHANIEL CHAMBERS Southern Districts midfielder James Tsitas stood out against Wanderers.
