For the third time this season, Chris Fagan switched Jarrod Berry to a tagging role mid-match on Saturday night against the Suns, and for the third time he had great success.

After slowing down a rampant Zach Merrett in round two and then a destructive Jordan Dawson in round nine, against Gold Coast it was Touk Miller who Berry had to lock in on after the Suns' co-captain threatened to steer his team to an upset win.

After Miller had gathered an eye-catching 28 disposals through three quarters, winning the ball on the inside and exploding into space on the outside, Fagan moved his No.1 stopper for the final term.

Berry had success, keeping Miller to six 'quiet' disposals and playing a role in Brisbane's dominant final term.

The 24-year-old is arguably having his best year to date. Minus a minor hamstring injury that ruled him out of Rounds 17 and 18, Berry has impressed with his ball use and toughness around the contest. 


The big bodied midfielder enjoyed a day out in Round 11 against GWS, racking up a career-high 33 disposals, 10 marks and kicking a nice goal to finish off.

Berry offers a versatile option for Chris Fagan in the midfield and while his tagging ability won't necessarily be called upon all the time, it's a useful trump card to have against the competition's best going into the last month of the season.
