Gary Ablett

Gary Ablett will return to his spiritual home this season, ending his Gold Coast experiment and donning as Geelong jersey for the first time since 2010.

But has he still got it? Well, we’ll let you be the judge of that. He had an injury plagued year in 2017 playing just 14 matches. Yet he still won the club Best & Fairest, as well as polling 14 votes. Yep, we think he still has it.

Since 2007 he has polled 220 votes from 190 matches, polling in 100 matches (52.63%). One drawback is now he will have to compete with Patrick Dangerfield and Joel Selwood for votes, however he will have free reign now compared to where he was the sole focus at Gold Coast.
