SOUTH Warrnambool export Sam Dwyer is now a two-time VFL premiership player after helping Port Melbourne to a fairytale flag on Sunday.

The Borough survived an after-the-siren scare to score a four-point win over Richmond at Etihad Stadium.

Dwyer played 20 matches for Port Melbourne in 2017 after a serious hamstring injury limited the former Collingwood-listed forward-midfielder to four appearances last season.

Cobden export Sean Darcy won his first WAFL flag with Peel Thunder, which went back to back.

The Fremantle-listed ruckman had an incredible 66 hitouts in the Thunder’s 16-point win over Subiaco in the last game at Domain Stadium.

Darcy combined WAFL duties with his eight AFL games in his first season in Western Australia.

Three-time Koroit premiership player Willem Drew fell short of his quest for a fourth consecutive flag.

The AFL-listed Drew collected eight disposals and laid 15 tackles in Port Adelaide Magpies’ heartbreaking one-point SANFL grand final loss to Sturt at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.
