The fans have spoken, and as voted by you, Luke Dunstan is this week’s Dare Iced Coffee Sainter of the Round.

In what was arguably his best game in the red, white and black, Luke Dunstan was immense as St Kilda powered to a 40-point victory over Richmond on Friday night.

The No. 7 led majority of the stats sheet, recording a mammoth 32 disposals (17 contested), 11 clearances and 667 metres gained to top all metrics by game's end.

Dunstan was damaging for the Saints heading into attack, recording nine inside-50s and six score involvements as well as an impressive goal on his opposite boot to open the third term.

Adding to his stellar outing was the fact that Dunstan - whose hunt and attack in and around the stoppages was terrific all evening - simultaneously held Richmond skipper Trent Cotchin and three-time Norm Smith medallist Dustin Martin to account to stifle the Tigers' midfield drive.

The triple-Premiership duo collected just four clearances between them as the Saints continued to muscle its way on top of the on-ball battle.

Dunstan's efforts were fittingly recognised by the final siren, with the 26-year-old unanimously awarded the Ian Stewart Medal for his best-on-ground display.

Paddy Ryder gets the two votes this week, with the veteran ruckman performing superbly against the reigning Premiers with 28 hit-outs, 13 disposals and seven marks.

St Kilda's clearance dominance (42-23) - although spearheaded by Dunstan, Jack Steele and Brad Crouch - was made possible by Ryder's pristine tapwork around the ground.

Partnering up alongside returning ruckman Rowan Marshall, the reunited duo had a combined 42 hit-outs and provided the midfield brigade with first possession.

Jack Steele rounds out this week’s voting, with the co-captain continuing his reliable run of form.

Steele paved the way for his side’s unwavering pressure and ferocity, ending his night with 25 disposals, nine clearances and nine tackles.
