    Brownlow Medal Main Contenders in 2018

    Tom Mitchell Profile

    The raging favourite with bookmakers. Tom Mitchell collected a staggering 786 possessions this season, including eleven matches with 40+ disposals and two with 50+. Last season he finished second in the Brownlow Medal with 25 votes, polling in 11 of his 22 games, and polled 12 and 12 in the two seasons prior.

    Dustin Martin Profile

    We all know how good Dusty was last season winning a Brownlow, Norm Smith and premiership medallion. His numbers were down this year, but that hasn’t stopped punters backing him heavily. In fact, he broke a record last year with 36 votes, while polling 25 votes the season before. We expect him to finish very strongly.

    Patrick Cripps Profile

    Patrick Cripps was the shining light in what was a horror season for Carlton. It’s a known fact it is tough to poll in a struggling team, but Cripps is a different beast. He polled 18 votes in 2016, so we know the umpires notice him. He broke the record for contested possessions in a season and was named in the All Australian team.

    Max Gawn Profile

    A ruckman to win the Brownlow Medal? Yeah, it is extremely rare, but Max Gawn could be the man. He won our Phantom Brownlow count this year and finished top of AFLCA count and second in the Herald Sun and counts. He polled 16 votes in 2016, but his highest tally outside of that is just 4 votes.

    Brodie Grundy Profile

    Another ruckman. Brodie Grundy had a stellar 2018 season, finishing equal second in our count and winning The Herald Sun player of the year. His finish to the season was remarkable and we expect him to come home like a freight train, but he is not a proven vote getter. In five seasons to date, he has polled just 7 votes. Not a great sign.

    Dayne Beams Profile

    Dayne Beams is a similar story to Cripps. An standout superstar in an ordinary team, which will make polling votes more difficult. Although, he polled 17 votes last year in a wooden spoon team, so don’t let that put you off. He improved significantly in 2018 and finished sixth in our Phantom Brownlow count this year.
