FRANKSTON Dolphins Leigh Osborne, Khan Haretuku and Kyle Martin wore the Big V with distinction on Saturday.
The trio were among the best players in the VFL's 108-point win over Tasmanian State League at Hobart's Blundstone Arena.
Dolphins coach Simon Goosey also played a role, as assistant coach to Gary Ayres.
"(Osborne) won the Tassie jumper for being the best Victorian player," Goosey said.
"He was really good off half back, he provided a springboard. He's come a long way since he first rocked down to pre-season."
Haretuku slotted 4.2.
"He provided a target and was really good. He did himself no harm for the future," Goosey said.
"He's come a long way in three years."
Martin, he said, "was all class".
"He won the ball. He played mainly high forward - he's normally a midfielder - but he won a lot of the ball, kicked a couple of goals."
Goosey said the trio did their prospects of being drafted into the AFL no harm.
"After the game there were quite a few talking about the Dolphin boys from a recruiting point of view," he said.
