Best and fairest honour for Mudcrab, but he wants wins

AUSSIE RULES: Zac Jahn took a grab with seconds left on the clock playing against Townsville last weekend, kicking a goal after the siren to secure a win by a handful of points.

The Aussie Rules forward credits the act with securing the best and fairest medal at the representative carnival.

Competing in a team made up of Gladstone and Rockhampton players, Jahn played matches against Mackay and Townsville.

Now he wants to bring the form back to his Gladstone Mudcrabs team, who play last placed Brothers tomorrow.

"Hopefully we get our season back on track; we have lost some close ones," Jahn said.

Last time out against Brothers, the Mudcrabs scored a 32 point win.

Jahn kicked five goals and was named best on ground.

But he is not interested in if he kicks a bag or is judged best, the win is all Jahn is playing for.

"They had about seven blokes in the representative side with us," he said.

"We have been big headed in the past and they have knocked us off. We can't do that again."

The Mudcrabs are fifth on the AFL Capricornia ladder, equal with Glenmore but behind on points percentage.

A big day against the ailing Brothers could turn the tables before a match against Glenmore next week.

The Mudcrabs are looking at these two matches as having the potential to bolster the hopes of top four and a finals spot.

But Jahn knows the opposite can also happen.

"We will see how we go, the positive is we have a few good nights in terms of numbers at training."
