Ben Cunnington

Since being drafted to North Melbourne with the ninth pick in the 2009 draft, Ben Cunnington has become a key player for the Kangaroos playing predominantly in the midfield.

Season 2014 has seen Cunnington improve out of sight and he is in a good position to poll Most Team Votes for North Melbourne. We have him polling 10 votes which could be pretty close to the mark.

Cunnington is not a great Brownlow Medal poller, polling in just 1 of his 73 games to date. He is not a star player, nor is he flashy, but he is the type of hard at it player who just gets the job done with no frills. This could work against him when it comes to Brownlow Medal votes.
