Projected Votes

1 Vote (W.Bulldogs) Mitch Wallis (1)

Wallis was the X-factor in this clash and seems to be adapting well to a new role in the forward line. Just the 11 Disposals, but 3 of his 5 Marks were contested and he was dangerous up forward all day providing plenty of scoring chances. His 4 Goals were noticeable and will give him a decent chance to poll votes in the win.

Macrae was influential in the middle the entire game and used the football at an elite level. His 26 Disposals came at 88% Efficiency, and he was also good without the football with 8 Tackles. A noted vote-getter from previous seasons, and Macrae should poll votes in this clash.

Bontempelli was fantastic in this game and kept the ball moving forward on every opportunity with 7 Inside 50s and 742 metres gained. He racked up 22 Disposals in which 18 were Kicks, and had 6 Score Involvements to go along with a goal. Also good without the football with 5 Tackles and is a favourite to poll the three votes.

2 Votes (Hawthorn) Tom Mitchell (7)

Mitchell was very good early in this clash and helped the Hawks hang around for the majority of the encounter. 12 of his 25 Disposals were Contested, and he racked up 5 Clearances. The noticeable part of this game was his work ethic, and he laid 11 Tackles throughout the match. 

3 Votes (Port Adelaide) Travis Boak (16)

The Power were not at their best in this clash, but Boak came to play and was the most consistent player out there. A massive 34 Disposals, including 16 Contested and he was excellent at stoppages with 9 Clearances. Also laid 6 Tackles in the clash and stepped up when the Power were struggling to perform. Should get the three votes.

Bolton is having a fantastic year and tallied 29 Disposals, including 12 Contested in the win. Also had 5 Clearances, 7 Inside 50s, 6 Score Involvements and a goal, to have a significant impact on the result. Always looks confident with the football, and may even get all three votes.

3 Votes (Richmond) Dustin Martin (11)

Dustin was busy in this one and was under pressure with 17 of his 30 Disposals being contested. He is always looking to move the ball forward and set up teammates with 9 Inside 50s, 7 Clearances and 9 Score Involvements in the win. He hit the score sheet with a goal, but may not get the maximum votes, as Bolton was also excellent.

Ryan may be the leading vote-getter for the Fremantle Dockers so far this season, and that shows how good a year he has had down back. Defenders do not generally poll well in the count, but his impact in games has been noticeable. 26 Disposals in this match, and used the footy at an elite 85% Disposal Efficiency. His ability to read the play stands out, and he collected 12 Intercept Possessions in this clash and 7 Rebound 50s, to be the favourite for the three votes.

Zak Jones – 23 Disposals (11 Contested) and 3 Clearances

Projected Votes

1 Vote (Brisbane) Harris Andrews (2)

Andrews may have had the most significant impact in this game, but he is a defender, and defenders generally don’t get Brownlow Votes. His 16 Disposals came at 88% Efficiency, and he racked up 10 Intercept Possessions. Also had a lot of spoils, and 2 of his 5 Marks were contested. Saved the game in many respects for the Lions.

Was also good at getting the ball into the Saints attacking 50 with 6 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements and scored a goal.

Harry Perryman – 24 Disposals (13 Contested), 6 Inside 50s and 4 Marks

Projected Votes

1 Vote (GWS) Josh Kelly (6)

Kelly was the Giants best player in this clash and covered the big ground well with elite running power. He used the footy well with his 26 Disposals coming at 92% Efficiency. Also had 4 Clearances, 6 Marks and booted a goal, to be a decent chance for votes, despite the loss.

2 Votes (West Coast) Jeremy McGovern (2)

The Giants made a late charge, but McGovern seemed everywhere in the closing stages and just kept intercepting the football. Defenders don’t typically poll votes, but the impact of the Eagles defender cannot be denied. 11 of his 18 Disposals were Intercept Possessions, and he used the footy at 83% Efficiency. Ended up taking 10 Marks down back, and 5 of them were noticeable Contested Marks. Deserves votes in the win.

3 Votes (West Coast) Nic Naitanui (13)

Naitanui played one of the best individual quarters of the season in this match. He was unstoppable out of the ruck in the first term, and that helped set up the Eagles win. 13 of his 14 Disposals were Contested, and he racked up 7 Clearances, in which 6 of those were in the first term.
