Midfielder Sam Durham has taken out full votes in round five's AFLCA's Champion Player Award.

Both coaches awarded the 22-year-old with full votes after his impactful game on Western Bulldogs Captain Marcus Bontempelli. Durham nullified the five-time All Australian while gathering 21 disposals, six important clearances and kicking the match winning goal.


Wingman and first-year recruit Xavier Duursma was judges second best afield after a 20-disposal and two-goal effort, while defender Mason Redman and skipper Zach Merrett both earned four votes apiece.
