2011 AFLCA Player of the Year Award – Round 8 – Light shines on Gaz

AFL Coaches Association

With Judd (2nd, 37 votes) having the week off and now Jobe Watson (1st, 43 votes) likely to miss the next 3 weeks with a Hammy injury, Gary Ablett (17th, 20 votes) made us remember why he is such a great player getting the 10 votes in a losing effort vs the Crows on the back of 40 odd disposals and 4 goal. Buddy Franklin (7th, 27 votes)  moved into the top 10 with his 3rd voting performance of 8 votes. Matthew Boyd (4th, 33 votes) moved into the top 5 and within 1 good game of the lead when he got 5 votes in the Bulldogs return to form against the Tigers.
