Defender Marcus Adams was one of two Western Bulldogs to poll AFLCA votes in Saturday night’s narrow loss to North Melbourne.

Adams, in his first senior match since round 12 2017, polled three votes.

After suffering a season ending foot injury last year and then ligament damage to his ankle on the eve of round one, Adams returned against the Roos and was named amongst the Dogs’ best players.

He gathered 20 disposals, 12 marks, eight one percenters and five inside-50s.

Hayden Crozier was also awarded three votes after collecting 30 touches  12 rebound 50s and 10 contested possessions in a best on ground performance for the Dogs.

It is the second week running that Crozier has been among the coaches’ votes, after he collected two votes in the Bulldogs’ loss to Port Adelaide in round 13.

Every round, the AFL coaches vote for the best players from their game. The coaches vote for five players, giving them a mark from 1-5.

The maximum a player can score is 10 (with five votes from both coaches).
