Matt Crouch cracked 40 disposals for the sixth time in his career with 43 touches against West Coast on Sunday afternoon.

It was his third-highest career disposal tally, three shy of his personal best (46) which he recorded in Round 22, 2018, against North Melbourne.

Crouch had a career-high 23 kicks alongside 18 contested possessions, nine clearances (seven effective), eight marks, seven inside-50s and two goal assists.

He had a team-high 543 metres gained.

Champion Data ranked him as the second-best player of the round with 161.1 points, just 0.1 behind Richmond’s Jack Graham who had 22 disposals, 14 tackles and four goals.

Brad Crouch followed his younger brother with 35 possessions, ranked equal-sixth in the AFL.

Fogarty led as an inside-50 target on 10 occasions and claimed a game-high four marks inside-50.
