Who they missed: The five players who were overlooked by the coaches in Round 3


Which players should have been given coaches votes for their Round 3 performances?

Champion Data’s Daniel Hoyne has named the five players who were perhaps overlooked by the coaches on the weekend.

The below guys rated in the top five of Champion Data’s ratings yet did not receive any votes (aside from Tim English who got two but perhaps should have got more).

See the five players below:

Josh Battle (St Kilda)

“We had him as the fourth highest rated player on the ground,” he said on SEN’s Sportsday.

“He was the third highest rated key defender from the weekend.

“His ball use was superb on the back of taking five intercept marks.”

Christian Petracca (Melbourne)

“He was the fifth highest rated player on the ground for us.

“Impact, impact, impact.

“His 16 contested possessions was the most on the ground, but more importantly he had 11 forward-half contested possessions which are just pure gold.”

Tim English (Western Bulldogs)

“We had him as the highest rated player on the ground.

“He snuck in just with two votes. I like what English is doing so far this year, trying to challenge the opposition offensively.

“It will be interesting to see how that goes on Saturday night against Geelong and a young kid (in Toby Conway).”

Rhyan Mansell (Richmond)

“That was the highest rated game of his career.

“He was the fifth highest rated player on the ground and didn’t get a vote.

“We talk about impact - he had 17 disposals but more importantly eight of them resulted in scores.

“Number one forward-half pressure player for the Tigers. That was really significant what he did against Sydney.”

Cam Mackenzie (Hawthorn)

“I thought he was clean in terms of what he did against Geelong on the weekend.

“He was the third highest rated player on the ground. It was a career-high rated game for him.

“His ball use was superb, he kicked two really nice goals an started to have more of an influence and involvement at centre bounce.

“He’s starting to take his game potentially to the next level.”
