North Melbourne’s Luke McDonald was named this week’s Rising Star nominee after an outstanding performance in the Kangaroos’ win over Sydney on Sunday. The father-son recruit had 20 disposals and five marks in the Roos’ upset win, and looks increasingly comfortable in the North Melbourne lineup each week.
‘‘Luke has been a complete professional in the way he has gone about his football since arriving at North Melbourne,’’ Kangaroos coach Brad Scott said.
‘‘He has worked extremely hard to get to where he is now and that diligence has paid off – as it’s shown in the first few rounds of his AFL career.”
