AFL 2017 Round 08 - West Coast v Western Bulldogs

Shannon Hurn earned seven out of a possible 10 AFLCA votes on Friday night

Elliot Yeo rocketed to the top of the AFL Coaches’ Association Champion Player of the Year award standings following his fine performance against the Western Bulldogs on Friday night.

Yeo’s five votes helped him leapfrog Adelaide midfielder Rory Sloane after the Crows’ midfielder was limited to just 11 touches against Melbourne due to a heavy tag by Demons’ run-with expert Bernie Vince.

While Yeo now leads the award race by one vote, Adam Simpson and Luke Beveridge adjudged Shannon Hurn as the best player afield on Friday.

Simpson and Beveridge awarded Hurn seven out of a possible 10 votes for his 28-disposal and six-mark effort against the reigning premiers.

Andrew Gaff collected six votes for his 35-touch display, Sam Mitchell registered two votes courtesy of his 33-possession, six-mark and two-tackle effort and Jeremy McGovern earned a solitary vote from the senior coaches.
