The 2022 Brownlow Medal will take place on Sunday, the 18th of September, and it is shaping up as yet another close count.

2020 Brownlow Medal Winner Lachie Neale is the favourite to win the award, and he had yet another stellar season in the middle of the ground for the Brisbane Lions.

Patrick Cripps, Andrew Brayshaw and Touk Miller are the other leading contenders for the prestigious award.

The 2021 Brownlow Medal Predictor had a strike rate of 69.7% for three vote predictions last season.

There are many games each season where a player is a clear standout, and the three-star ratings for matches came in at 92.7%.

Brownlow Predictor, Team Votes 2022

Adelaide Crows

Projected Votes – 52

Projected Leader – Rory Laird 15

The Adelaide Crows played some good football in patches in the 2022 AFL Season, and midfielder Rory Laird is the likely leader again.

Laird racked up a lot of contested football and is a chance to poll votes in many matches throughout the count.

Taylor Walker had a decent season up forward for the Crows, whilst Ben Keays and defender Jordan Dawson had some standout matches and should feature in the votes.

Rory Laird will be tough to beat and has many outside chances to poll votes throughout the count.

Brisbane Lions

Projected Votes – 76

Projected Leader – Lachie Neale 30

2020 Brownlow Medal Winner Lachie Neale is the favourite to win the medal and stayed injury free in the 2022 AFL Season. Neale racks up a lot of contested football, and his work around stoppages significantly impacts matches.

Hugh McCluggage is expected to poll votes in the count but hasn’t polled well as yet. McCluggage had a couple of games where he kicked four goals and is favoured to get the top votes in those matches.

Other Lions that may feature in the votes include Jarryd Lyons, Zac Bailey, Dayne Zorko and Charlie Cameron, but Lachie Neale should win the Lions count by a comfortable margin, and McCluggage is the favourite for second.

Carlton Blues

Projected Votes – 81

Projected Leader – Patrick Cripps 24

The Blues were in the eight for the entire season, but fell out despite a best-on-ground performance from Patrick Cripps in the loss to the Magpies in the final round.

The Blues star midfielder should get off to a flyer in the 2022 Count and could be on nine votes after three rounds. Cripps wins a lot of contested football and clearances and will be the leading contender to lead the way at the Blues.

Sam Walsh was the surprise early in the 2021 Count, and he once again racked up a lot of the football in the 2022 AFL Season.

Walsh is a chance to poll votes in many matches but will have more competition for votes this season with Coleman Medal Winner Charlie Curnow, defender Sam Docherty and midfielders Matthew Kennedy and George Hewett all stepping up and having consistent seasons.

Patrick Cripps will be tough to beat in the Blues count and has chances to poll the maximum votes in many matches.

Collingwood Magpies

Projected Votes – 66

Projected Leader – Jordan De Goey 12

The Collingwood count is shaping up as a close one, and it will be tough to pick the likely leader.

Jack Crisp has several outside chances to poll in the count and is the favourite, whilst Jordan De Goey has moments that impact matches and makes smart decisions with the football.

Nick Daicos had an impressive first season and used the football efficiently, whilst his brother Josh Daicos had his best season with some big moments in close matches.

Jack Crisp will be the likely leader in the early stages of the count, but doesn’t have a lot of chances to poll in the latter stages, and De Goey or the Daicos brothers will challenge.

Essendon Bombers

Projected Votes – 53

Projected Leader – Zach Merrett 16

The Bombers count looks like a battle between two, and Zach Merrett had an impressive finish to the season. He should make a late charge in the concluding stages of the count with several chances at the top votes. 

Merrett won’t feature until about Round 16, where he is a chance at the maximum votes in the win over Sydney and should poll votes in rounds 17, 18, 19 and 20.

Darcy Parish will be the early leader but missed six games through injury, whilst Mason Redman had an impressive season as a defender, and Peter Wright had some big matches up forward.

Merrett looks the likely leader at Essendon and had a solid finish to the season, with Parish the best chance to challenge.

Fremantle Dockers

Projected Votes – 78

Projected Leader – Andrew Brayshaw 27

Fremantle’s star midfielder Andrew Brayshaw will lead the way at the Dockers and is a genuine chance to contend for the medal.

Brayshaw gets a lot of the football and applies a stack of pressure on the opposition, which should get noticed. He has a lot of chances to poll votes in the count and should win the Fremantle count by a comfortable margin.

The battle for second will be an interesting one as new Dockers recruit Will Brodie had a fantastic season as an inside midfielder and has several chances to poll votes in the count.

Dockers ruckman Sean Darcy had a consistent season, as did Caleb Serong, but Brodie is favoured to finish second at the Dockers, with Darcy and Serong the likely challengers.

Geelong Cats

Projected Votes – 102

Projected Leader – Jeremy Cameron 18

The Cats finished the season on top of the table and had several contributors throughout the season.

Star forward Jeremy Cameron is favoured to lead the way with several strong chances to poll the maximum votes throughout the count.

Geelong had a number of even contributors throughout the season, but expect the likes of Cam Guthrie, Tom Hawkins, Tom Stewart, Patrick Dangerfield and Mark Blicavs to get votes at stages throughout the count.

Jeremy Cameron will be tough to beat at the Cats, and he had a few games where he was a clear standout.

Gold Coast Suns

Projected Votes – 71

Projected Leader – Touk Miller 23

The Gold Coast Suns played some good football throughout the season, and Touk Miller is one of the six leading contenders to win the medal.

Miller racks up a lot of contested football and applies a stack of pressure on the opposition to be a regular standout in Suns matches.

Noah Anderson is favoured to lead the way for the second spot with a solid season in the middle, whilst David Swallow, Matt Rowell and Jarrod Witts should get some votes at various stages.

Miller should lead the way at the Suns by a comfortable margin.

GWS Giants

Projected Votes – 48

Projected Leaders – Stephen Coniglio and Josh Kelly 8

The Giants had a disappointing season and no real standouts, but a change of coach and a switch back to the midfield has given Stephen Coniglio a chance to poll votes.

Coniglio had some impressive matches, whilst Josh Kelly had a consistent season but did under poll in the 2021 Brownlow Count.

Jesse Hogan, Tom Green and Toby Greene may feature in the votes at stages, but it is looking like a battle between two at the Giants.

Hawthorn Hawks

Projected Votes – 46

Projected Leader – Jack Gunston 9

The Hawthorn count could be the most interesting on Brownlow Night as they had no real standouts, and 2018 Brownlow Medal Winner Tom Mitchell didn’t impact games as much.

Three potential best-on-ground performances from forward Jack Gunston could be enough, but he will need the top votes in the round one win over the Kangaroos, which was a challenging game to split.

Defender James Sicily had a consistent season down back, whilst second-year player Jai Newcombe had some impressive matches throughout the season and could feature in the votes.

Tom Mitchell has many outside chances to poll votes, and Mitch Lewis had some impressive matches up forward, but the Hawks count could go several ways.

Melbourne Demons

Projected Votes – 97

Projected Leader – Clayton Oliver 29

The Demon’s two star midfielders are once again projected to feature in the votes and are both favoured to challenge for the medal.

Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca had impressive seasons and have many chances to poll votes throughout the count.

Max Gawn had a consistent season in the ruck, and both Angus Brayshaw and Jack Viney will feature in the votes at stages, but Oliver or Petracca should lead the way at the Demons, with Oliver the likely favourite.

North Melbourne Kangaroos

Projected Votes – 25

Projected Leader – Luke Davies-Uniacke 8

The North Melbourne Count looks like a battle between two, with a forward and a young midfielder projected to feature in the votes.

Luke Davies-Uniacke had some impressive matches and racked up a lot of contested football, whilst forward Nick Larkey had a few games where he kicked five goals or more.

Jy Simpkin is an outside chance to poll in some matches, but Davies Uniacke will be tough to beat with Larkey the likely challenger.

Port Adelaide Power

Projected Votes – 65

Projected Leader – Connor Rozee 18

The Power narrowly missed the finals after a poor start to the season, and it’s looking like a battle between two for the most votes.

Connor Rozee had a breakout season with a switch to the midfield, and he has many chances to poll votes throughout the count with a couple of clear best-on-ground performances.

2021 Brownlow Medal Winner Ollie Wines was not as damaging in season 2022, but he has a lot of chances to poll votes and kept racking them up last season.

Travis Boak may also feature in the votes at stages, but Rozee is the favourite at the Power with Wines to challenge.

Richmond Tigers

Projected Votes – 79

Projected Leader – Dion Prestia 18

The Tigers made the finals and had a few players that stood out at times.

Dion Prestia had a good season and won a lot of contested football and clearances. Prestia had a strong finish to the season, which may be enough to lead the way at the Tigers.

Shai Bolton doesn’t win as much of the football as some of the game’s elite ball winners, but when he does, things happen, and he had an impact when he went to the middle and was dangerous across the forward half for most of the season.

Tom Lynch had several standout games up forward and took a lot of contested marks, but Prestia or Bolton will be the two leading contenders for the most votes at the Tigers.

St Kilda Saints

Projected Votes – 69

Projected Leader – Jack Steele 11

It looks like a battle between three players at the Saints, with star midfielder Jack Steele the favourite to lead the way.

Steele racks up a lot of contested football for the Saints, but did under poll slightly in last year’s count and missed four games through injury in the 2022 Season.

Brad Crouch had a consistent season and has some decent chances for the top votes in a couple of matches.

The interesting player at the Saints will be defender Jack Sinclair. Sinclair had a breakout season and led the Saints for disposals, but defenders have generally found it tough to poll votes in previous counts. However, he does have several outside chances to poll votes throughout the count.

Sydney Swans

Projected Votes – 86

Projected Leader – Callum Mills 18

The Swans had an impressive season, and Callum Mills is favoured to lead the way as he did last season. Mills had some big matches in season 2022 and has several chances to poll votes throughout the count.

Third-year player Chad Warner had a breakout season and will get noticed with his distinct run and carry, whilst Luke Parker had a solid season and is an outside chance at votes in several games.

Isaac Heeney, Tom Papley and Lance Franklin should feature in the votes at times, but Callum Mills will be tough to beat at the Swans, with Warner and Parker the two main challengers.

West Coast Eagles

Projected Votes – 25

Projected Leader – Josh Kennedy 6

The Eagles had a season to forget and struggled to field an entire squad of players in the season’s early stages.

Star forward Josh Kennedy is favoured to lead the way at the Eagles with a couple of games that stood out. Kennedy booted five goals in the win over Essendon and eight in his farewell match against the Crows, which may be enough to lead the way at the Eagles.

Defender Tom Barrass won the Eagle’s best and fairest and is a chance to poll votes in matches, but it is difficult to see any other player getting to six votes, which may be enough to lead the way at West Coast.

Western Bulldogs

Projected Votes – 69

Projected Leader – Marcus Bontempelli 16

The Bulldogs scraped into the finals, but overall it was a disappointing season from last year’s Grand Finalists.

There are a couple of main contenders to lead the way at the Dogs, with Marcus Bontempelli a strong chance at the top votes in a couple of matches in the latter stages of the count. Bontempelli isn’t expected to poll many votes early, but is a chance at the maximum votes in rounds 10 and 15 and a strong chance to poll the top votes in rounds 18 and 19.

Josh Dunkley had a consistent season in the middle of the ground, and is a chance for votes in several matches, whilst Bailey Smith should feature in the votes early.

Tom Liberatore, Tim English and Jack Macrae should get votes at times, but if Bontempelli can poll a couple of votes early in the count, he will be tough to beat with some best-on-ground performances late.
