Lance Franklin

For what is predominantly a midfielders award, superstar forward Lance Franklin has quite an impressive track record in the Brownlow Medal. But perhaps that is unsurprising given the amount of goals he kicks.

Since his debut in 2005, Franklin has polled in 38 of his 168 matches to the end of 2013 at a rate of 23%, which is well above average for a forward. Of those 168 matches he has polled 82 Brownlow Medal votes.

On four occasions he has polled double digits, his best being 20 votes (2008 and 2011). He has managed to poll votes in every season he has played and will always be a danger.
