Hawthorn forward Jarryd Roughead has been voted in at number six in the Players’ Top 50, following a stellar 2014 season that culminated in his third Premiership.

The versatile 193cm forward kicked 75 goals in 2014, despite spending a portion of his time playing through the midfield.

Arguably his best game for the season came in Round 12 against the West Coast Eagles, when he collected 24 disposals, kicked eight goals and laid six tackles.

A big-game performer, Roughead kicked 13 goals in Hawthorn’s three finals appearances last year, including five in the Grand Final win over Sydney.

The 28-year-old has climbed eight spots in the Players’ Top 50, after coming in at number 14 in the 2014 Players’ Top 50.
