Hard-working Power half-back Matt Thomas says Warren Tredrea is playing the best football of his career after the former captain booted seven goals against Richmond including the match-winner.
"It was as good a game as he's ever played for the club and it was right up there with the most influential. He kicked goals when we needed them and, in the end, he took that mark fairly deep in the pack.
"I've said that not being captain has been good for him. Now, he can smell the roses. He can worry about himself and he doesn't have to do all the meetings, all the media and all the other things that a captain has to do."
