AFL 2023: Round Ten Team Of The Week

We saw some great performances this weekend that have led to some big changes to the Team Of The Week

Some new faces pop into the Team of the Week after the Edge of the Crowd AFL team put their heads together to come up with the best performed 22 from the week that was Round Ten.

Full Backs

Dan Houston (Port Adelaide)

The Power defender seemed to be everywhere on the field on Friday night. Whether it was stopping goals or kicking goals Houston was a big reason for the four-point win. Houston had 33 touches and gained 815 metres for the Power.

Darcy Moore (Collingwood)

The Pies proved they are the leading side in the competition once again with their big win over arch-rivals Collingwood. Darcy Moore was excellent in defence as well as moving forward when required. The skipper had 25 touches and took 11 marks as well as laying four tackles.

James Sicily (Hawthorn)

What a match this was. It was the second-biggest win by a bottom-ranked side in the history of the VFL/AFL and Sicily was a big part of it. He had 30 touches from the backline while taking 11 marks with four tackles for exactly 600 metres gained.

Half Backs

Caleb Daniel (Western Bulldogs)

The little backman is back in the Team Of The Week taking the place of Nick Daicos after a great all-around match. Daniel had 30 touches in the Dogs win while kicking a goal as well as having six clearances. He also chipped in with a couple of goal assists.

Jack Sinclair (St Kilda)

The Saints were back in the winner's book this weekend after travelling to Sydney to play GWS. Sinclair was excellent running off half-back having a massive 37 touches and kicking two goals. The Jack's proved again just how important they are to the Saints.

Sam Docherty (Carlton)

While he may have been on the losing side Docherty was a beast for the Blues playing almost a lone hand in a disappointing match. Docherty had 34 touches with 25 kicks as well as laying four tackles while having a goal assist.

Josh Daicos (Collingwood)

It's the other Daicos making his way into the starting 18 of the Team of the Week. Daicos had 27 touches this weekend as well as kicking a goal. He provides a little bit more run than his brother albeit usually with fewer touches.

Zach Merrett (Essendon)

The Essendon captain was the best on the field this weekend and will no doubt be getting the three votes when the Brownlow comes around. The skipper had 39 touches with seven tackles and five clearances but most importantly in a one-point match was his three-goal assist match.

Tom Liberatore (Western Bulldogs)

He got the three weeks in our Brownlow medal prediction and now he sits on the wing in the Team Of The Week. Liberatore had 33 touches from the wing while having seven key clearances amongst five tackles. The only thing that he was missing was a goal with him scoring a couple of behinds.

Half Forwards

Lance Franklin (Sydney)

The big man is back in the Team Of The Week after kicking three key goals to get Sydney just over the line against a Kangaroos lineup that looked very good. As well as the three goals Franklin also laid five tackles as well as providing a goal assist.

Mitch Lewis (Hawthorn)

It's not often a player can outscore an entire team but this weekend Mitch Lewis added himself to a very short list. The forward kicked six goals in the massive win while having 24 touches with another goal assist. He simply blew away the Eagles.

Brody Mihocek (Collingwood)

The big Collingwood forward was once again on the multiple-goal scorer list against the Blues. He's putting together another Coleman Medal campaign after kicking four more goals this weekend.

Full Forwards

Brent Daniels (GWS)

He's a player that doesn't get a lot of attention from the mainstream footy media but Daniels is certainly on the rise and had a great game against the Saints. He had 24 touches and kicked two goals while having three clearances and setting up teammates a couple of times.

Joe Daniher (Brisbane)

Daniher is pushing his case for a Coleman Medal this season after yet another match of multiple goals. The big man kicked four goals while having 16 touches when going further up the ground as well as taking eight marks.

Shai Bolton (Richmond)

In a one-point loss, Bolton did his best to get Richmond over the line. The small forward had 28 touches from the forward line as well as kicking two key goals to almost get the Tigers over the line.

Rowan Marshall (St Kilda)

Marshall is one of the best ruckmen in the competition and was simply dominant against the Giants this weekend. Marshall had 24 touches and five clearances through the middle while getting a massive 30 hit-outs.

Lachie Neale (Brisbane)

It's not a surprise that Neale gets into this team once again after having a best-on-ground performance against the Suns. The midfielder had 35 touches and 10 clearances in a great match that saw him take eight marks and have a goal assist.

Zak Butters (Port Adelaide)

Friday night was the best game of Butters' career. He was all over the field and was key right to the dying stages of the match. Amongst two goals Butters had 41 touches and 10 clearances as well as providing plenty of defensive pressure.
