The fans have spoken, and as voted by you, Cooper Sharman is this week’s Dare Iced Coffee Sainter of the Round.
The four-gamer kicked a career-high four goals in Sunday’s 58-point win over Fremantle, resulting in St Kilda’s first win ever recorded at Blundstone Area.
Fresh off signing a two-year contract earlier in the week, Sharman looked confident and composed against the Dockers, presenting well as a tall option, adding pressure when the ball went to ground and maintaining his high-percentage accuracy in front of goal.
The mid-season draftee ended his day with fifteen disposals, six marks (four contested) and seven score involvements, his fourth goal early in the last term igniting the spark as the Saints went on to kick seven straight to finish the season on a high.
Sharman starred alongside fellow aerial target Tim Membrey (three goals), while small forward trio Dan Butler, Dean Kent and Jack Higgins brought the pressure at ground level, each registering two goals.
Since making his debut as the unused medical sub in Round 19, Sharman has kicked multiple goals in all four games.
Jack Steele secures the two votes this week, with a game-high 36 disposals (17 contested) - a career-high for the No. 9 against Fremantle.
The co-captain brought the grunt in the engine room alongside Brad Crouch and Zak Jones, leading by example with six clearances, six tackles and 445 metres gained.
Steele now finishes his season with 185 tackles - the most in the competition, leading second-place Touk Miller (Gold Coast) by 36.
Rowan Marshall rounds out this week’s voting after an impressive performance, with the flexible ruckman gathering 21 disposals, seven tackles and nine score involvements.
The 25-year-old shared ruck duties alongside Paul Hunter while also drifting forward, ending the day with two fourth-quarter majors.
