Josh Bruce's six goals saw him claim the Dare Iced Coffee Sainter of the Round.

The fans have spoken, and key forward Josh Bruce has been awarded the Round 16 Dare Iced Coffee Sainter of the Round.

Bruce’s equal career-best haul of six goals straight was enough to take out the fan-voted award, as he led all comers on the scoreboard.

His strong performance was also recognised with a spot in the AFL's Team of the Week. 

The 27-year-old’s trademark competitive edge was on show as he attacked the contest all afternoon, racking up 15 contested possessions, seven contested marks and four tackles.

In second place once again is midfield jet Jack Billings, who amassed a career-high 35 disposals (13 contested) in his 100th game for the Saints.

Game-high figures in both inside-50s (nine) and rebound-50s (eight) showcased the completeness of his game, while six tackles highlighted his defensive efforts.

Rounding out the voting is hard-man Jack Steele, whose record-breaking 18-tackle effort saw him beat himself for the club record (prev. 17).

Steele got the job on North enforcer Ben Cunnington, and his huge haul of hits has the inside mid brimming with confidence heading into Round 17.

The Saints will face Geelong at GMHBA Stadium at 7.25pm on Saturday, 13 July.
