Max GawnPolled in 10 of 96 Games (10%) for 23 Votes

Max Gawn

Max Gawn is one of the true characters of the game, known for his long bushy beard. He is an exceptional footballer too, becoming an All-Australian ruckman this year for the second time in his career.

He was crowned winner of the 2018 Phantom Brownlow Medal, alongside winning the AFLCA champion of the year. He finished second in both The Herald Sun and AFL.com.au counts, and fourth in The Age count.

Will all that translate to Brownlow votes though? It will be a tough ask, as ruckman very rarely ever win this award. Plus his voting history is nothing to read home about.

In 2016 he polled 16 votes, but he has polled just 23 votes in his career, polling in only 10 of his 96 games played. Something to keep in mind when backing him.
