Again showed why is one of the best in the business winning his second J.J Liston Medal as well as his first Gerry Callahan Medal. Again showed why is one of the best in the business winning his second J.J Liston Medal as well as his first Gerry Callahan Medal. Gibbons had multiple best on ground displays this year including; 36 possessions, 1 goal v Sandringham Round 11; 37 possessions, 16 being contested v Northern Blues Round 15 and 25 disposals and a goal in the Preliminary Final against Box Hill.
7. Nick Rodda
Games: 20 Goals: 28
A revelation in his first season at the Gulls, Nick Rodda cemented his place as a fan favourite with a 28 goal debut season. Intially starting in defence, it was a move up forward that sparked Rodda and the Seagulls in the back half of the year. Rodda was a dominant force against the Northern Blues in Round 15 kicking 5 goals in a best on ground display
8. Peter Faulks
Games: 10 Goals: 0
An interrupted season kept him to just the 10 games but continued to play his role in defence. Faulks ability to read the play and footy smarts to intercept a number of inside 50 entries by opposing clubs saw him play an invaluable role with the defensive group..
9. Adam Marcon
Games: 18 Goals: 12
Marcon averaged 20 disposals along with 7 tackles per game with his performance against Richmond in Round 19 kicking 3 goals to go with 27 possessions and 12 tackles an individual season highlight.
10. Leigh Masters
Games: 19 Goals: 9
Masters achieved Life Membership with the club this season and was also awarded the Club 1864 award for his selflessness. The versatile utility moved between forward and defence throughout the course of the season with a key highlight of his season coming in Round 9 against the Tigers where he produced a number of match saving efforts in the final term.
