The votes are in, and as decided by you, Rowan Marshall is this week's Dare Iced Coffee Sainter of the Round.

Taking on the solo ruck job against the Hawks, Marshall was a dominant force in the St Kilda engine room, consistently giving his midfielders first use in the stoppages.

It was an immense stat-line for the 26-year-old Saint, who finished the game with career-highs in disposals (30), intercepts (10) and score involvements (nine), along with 30 disposals nine marks, seven clearances, seven tackles, 465 metres gained and 35 hitouts.

The performance not only helped St Kilda to a vital win, but also saw Marshall win the Silk-Miller Memorial Medal for the best-on-ground display.

The commanding display comes off the back of a 49-hitout game the week before from the Saints’ ruckman, who is stringing together a superb run of games that is coming just at the right time for his side.

With Paddy Ryder out for the season and the Saints set for a tough run home ahead of the finals, the form of the No. 19 will be crucial for Brett Ratten’s side.

Second in the votes is Brad Crouch, who once again was a bull in the midfield as he thrived under Marshall’s tap work.

The former Crow stormed through the middle of Marvel Stadium to gather 30 disposals, 11 tackles, nine clearances and a goal in a formidable display of midfield craft.

The 2022 season has been an impressive one for Crouch, who is averaging 28 disposals for the year while also sitting fourth in the AFL for total tackles.

The returning Dan Hannebery finishes off the votes for Round 20, with the veteran midfielder outstanding in his first game of AFL in 2022.

Back in the senior side after two solid outings in the VFL, Hannebery got to making up for lost time with 27 disposals, seven score involvements, five clearances and a crumbing goal that got the Saints fans on their feet.

With over 224 games of experience, the former premiership player will be looking to build on his first game back across the final three games of the year ahead of a possible finals berth.
