Oscar McDonald picks up the round 21 Rising Star nomination after gathering a career-high 23 disposals against the Power.
Oscar says living with brother and Melbourne teammate Tom McDonald has been of great benefit.
"At the start he was there to help me with things like the schedule, but now it's about on-field things," Oscar said.
"He helps me a lot with technique and contest stuff. (Defensive coach) Jade Rawlings, Tom and I do a lot of work with our marking and spoiling craft.
"We work together a fair bit in training to try to get better at those things and he's been a big help to me."
Oscar has made massive strides throughout the season and is getting better with every game he plays.
"It's been a lot to do with confidence and working out when to come off your man and attack and when to hold back and maintain your shape behind the ball," McDonald said.
"I remember in the pre-season I didn't think I was on anyone's radar at the club. I was hoping to get a NAB Challenge look in and just try to prove to everyone I could be an asset to the team.
"After playing in round one (against Greater Western Sydney) I gained confidence in myself that I could play at the level, and I think the coaches had that faith in me all along but it was just about marrying those things up."
