Highlights | Carlton v St Kilda The Blues and Saints clash in Round 8.

Another dominant display in defence has landed Sam Docherty in AFL Media’s ‘Team of the Week’.

The 23-year-old earned his place in the best 22 after managing an equal game-high 10 intercepts, a total of 26 disposals and six tackles in Carlton’s Round 8 clash with St Kilda.

Docherty was named in the team as a half-back alongside North Melbourne’s Robbie Tarrant and West Coast’s Sam Mitchell. 

The dependable defender also received one vote for the 2017 AFLCA Champion Player of the Year Award. 

Blues fans will hope for another stellar effort from Docherty when the team travels west to face Fremantle at Domain Stadium on Sunday 21 May from 2:40pm AWST.
