Each week throughout the 2019 Premiership season, AFL New Zealand will announce the ‘Team of the week’ which will feature the 24 best players from the previous weekends round.
The penultimate team of the week features a star studded backline headlined by Southern Saints best on ground Andriu Sucu and team mate Hayden Johnston. The ever reliable Nick Rhodes (Giants) features again along with Sun’s defenders Paul Hogan and Tom Hayhoe.
In the midfield, Saints Captain Michael Boyce had another outstanding game and linked well with Travis Walker. For the Sun’s, the Mornington Peninsula duo Adam Harris and Max Urwin both starred to earn their spot for the first time.
Saints forward Harley Jenkins features for the fourth time after another solid performance while Reed Cathcart has hit some late form for the Sun’s as he slots into the forward line.
