MURRAY Bushrangers key forward Hudson Garoni’s huge bag of eight goals on Saturday was enough to earn him the title of AFL Draft Central’s TAC Cup Player of the Week, for Round 4.
The AFL Academy tall was influential throughout the contest, especially when the Bushrangers got on top of the Dragons, booting 13 goals in a row during the middle part of the contest.
Garoni booted four goals in the second quarter in the space of fifteen minutes, with his burst helping the Bushrangers reverse a Dragons lead of 19 points, and going into the final quarter Garoni had five goals to his name – managing to add a further three to finish with 8.2.
His contested marking was on show during the match, clunking five of his nine marks in the contest, finishing with 20 disposals to go with his eight goals.
Garoni’s big haul takes the 195cm tall forward to equal-first on the TAC Cup goal kicking charts, with the Bushrangers tall one of the main contenders likely to take out the honours as the top goalkicker in 2018.
