Matt Crouch’s dominant game against West Coast was rewarded with eight coaches votes while five-goal Darcy Fogarty polled for the first time this season.

Crouch collected a round-high 43 disposals against the Eagles and only Luke Shuey (nine) received more votes in the game.

The midfielder played a pivotal role with a career-high 23 kicks and 543 metres gained, as a dominant 15-disposal second-quarter kept Adelaide in the game.

In a breakout game for the 19-year-old, Fogarty picked up three votes for his personal-best five goals.

The teenager kicked a perfect 5.0 in his second AFL game of 2019
