Luke Shuey collected 18 contested possessions against the Crows

Star West Coast Eagles midfielder Luke Shuey is still in the hunt to claim the 2019 AFL Coaches Association Champion Player of the Year Award after collecting a game-high nine votes at Optus Stadium on Sunday.

Senior coaches Adam Simpson and Don Pyke adjudged Shuey best on ground for his stirring performance headlined by 29 disposals, 18 contested possessions, 10 clearances, six marks, five tackles and five inside 50s.

Thinks would have to fall Shuey’s way given he is 17 votes behind leader Marcus Bontempelli, but he is one of six players in the running to claim the AFLCA title.

Elliot Yeo and Jack Darling were the only other Eagles to register votes on Sunday. They both received five votes from the senior coaches.

Yeo won his votes on the back of a gutsy display that boasted 26 disposals, 16 contested possessions, six one percenters, five tackles and five inside 50s.

Darling pocketed his votes after collecting 16 disposals, laying an equal team-high seven tackles and bagging three goals against the Crows.
