Joel Selwood

Joel Selwood is regarded as one of the toughest midfielders in the competition and is a proven vote getter, with his percentage of games polled in rating him up there with the likes of Chris Judd.

Selwood has polled in 54 of 140 games which has seen him receive 116 career votes. He polls at a rate of 38.5% which is a very high figure and is enough to suggest he will almost certainly become a Brownlow Medal winner with this kind of rate one day soon, bar any unforeseen circumstances.

Since debuting in 2007 with just 2 votes, he has gone on to poll 19, 16, 21, 17, 14 and 27 votes between 2008-13. Given the nature of which he plays, he is always in the sight of the umpires and will continue to poll well in 2014.
