1. Patrick Lipinski

He constantly drove the ball inside 50 to his side. He won a lot of inside balls but was also polished with his foot on the outside. 6

2. Jordan DeGoey

Adding more dollars to his deal every minute he plays let alone every game he plays. Electric all game, exploding up front with multiple stops, gaining territory for pies and kicking the ball with pinpoint accuracy. Scored the Magpies’ third goal of the game. His work, especially stopping the rebound off center, was breathtaking, while his second try showed just how determined he is at the moment. Twelve of his 24 touches led to Magpies scores. Fox Footy’s Jason Dunstall said he “loved the way he runs the midfield”, while Jordan Lewis said De Goey “bought the ball both ways”. 9

3. Isaac Quaynor

He ran into several Dockers halfway forward. It wasn’t very offensive, but it did the job. 5

5. Jamie Elliott

It always looked like an uncomfortable matchup for Freo’s defense – and that came true on Saturday night. It was a handful, both near the target and on the ground. He scored two smart goals in the first half and produced a superb defensive effort in his fifty early in the last half that brought the Pies fans to their feet. 7

7. Josh Daicos

The winger provided his team with plenty of forward movement, especially early in the game. 7

8. White Trent

To the team for Taylor Adams. He used the ball effectively with his feet. It will be interesting to see if they retain their place in the preliminary final. 6

9. John Noble

They lined up next to Michael Walters on the first bounce but spun through several Dockers at half-forward. So classy and clever on the ball, exploiting the half-backs and consistently setting up his teammates. 7

10. Scott Pendlebury

Game No. 357 and started like it was Game No. 157. He had 11 sacks, eight contested possessions and two sacks in the first quarter alone. Still absolutely flying at 34. 8

14. Darcy Cameron

Competed hard in the ruck but didn’t have the impact he would have liked from the center. During the match, he suffered several heavy blows to the face and had to come to the bench for attention. 5

22. Steele Sidebottom

Full class as usual, going 100 per cent on foot and making smart decisions with the ball in hand. 7

25. Jack Crisp

In stunning form, he regularly carves up opposition sides. An awesome eight-kill opening quarter that propels the pies forward by bursting out of stops and patrolling the central corridor. He finished with several goals and among the leading clearance winners on the ground. 9

28. Nathan Murphy

He played as a third tall defender so he was often ready to leave his man. He was a great addition to the side as the year progressed. 5

30. Darcy Moore

Safe as the houses in the back. It barely turned blue all night. He started on Rory Lobb but stuck as close to the defensive goal as possible in the Steven May role. He backed up his excellent final with Tom Hawkins seven days earlier. 7

31. Beau McCreery

He used huge defensive pressure early on to help set the tone for his club. 5

32. Will Hoskin-Elliott

He could have had a big night if he kicked straight and his goal kicking was off the radar. Booted 0.3. 5

33. Jack Ginnivan

No stage is too big for him. Perfect start, football goal through the first goal of the game – third time this season he scored the first goal of the game. Then he conjured a goal out of nowhere in tight traffic in the third term. He finished with three goals and looked dangerous whenever the ball went his way. 7

35. Nick Daicos

It looked like he caught a defensive tag from Sam Switkowski. It didn’t faze him at all, he used the ball effectively as he made pies with confidence all night. 81 percent of it was on foot. 8

37. Brayden Maynard

He started the game on the opening bounce in the middle before moving into defense where he played several Dockers forwards. He appeared as a prop in the first semester, but stayed out on the ground or most of the night. 6

38. Jeremy Howe

Apparently he had more interceptions than any other player on the ground. He took Griffin Logue on the first bounce but also had time for other Dockers forwards such as Rory Lobb. He was constantly getting into the right places to win the ball back for the Pies while also making several goal saving tackles. 7

40. Ash Johnson

Definition of “almost night”. Had he kicked straight, he could have had a breathtaking highlight reel and ended up with a 0.3. 5

41. Brody Mihocek

Alex Pearce had company. He soon gained confidence with a level set-shot for Collingwood’s second goal before adding a second in the third term. Remarkably, seven of his nine disposals ended in Collingwood scores. 7

45. Josh Carmichael

Unused medical submarine. ON

46. ​​Mason Cox

Perhaps the best aspect of Cox this year was how rarely he was beaten in the air, which was on display against the Dockers. He was in party mode in the final quarter, which included kicking a term-opening sealer – his 100th AFL goal – and then a stunning moot point in the final two minutes that sparked maddened scenes in the stands. 7
