Brownlow Medal Predictor Round 8 2021

Richmond vs Geelong

Richmond 9.9 63 – Geelong 19.12 126

(Geelong by 63 Points)

A significant build-up to the Grand Final rematch all week, and the first-half didn’t disappoint. The Tigers got off to a fast start, and Shai Bolton took one of the best marks of the season as the Tigers went into the break with a 9 point lead.

The Cats came out to play in the second half, with forwards Jeremy Cameron, Gary Rohan and Tom Hawkins all having an impact in a dominant third term.

Cam Guthrie continued to win the football and was well supported by Mitch Duncan in the second-half. 

Geelong’s defence also stood up, with Tom Stewart and Zach Tuohy being the standouts on the defensive half.

Shai Bolton was again the shining light for the Tigers, and he not only took a Mark of the Year Contender, but was also the Tiger most productive player.

Gold Coast vs St Kilda

Gold Coast 7.12 54 – St Kilda 8.15 63

(St Kilda by 9 Points)

The Suns looked like the winner in this one at three-quarter time, but the Saints fought back in the final term to pinch the match.

Jack Steele and Jack Billings had an influence in the closing stages and were well supported by Zak Jones, Brad Crouch and Hunter Clark.

For the Suns, Touk Miller continues his excellent form and David Swallow was very good at pressurizing the Saints mids for the majority of the contest.

David Swallow – 28 Disposals (22 Effective), 4 Clearances, 5 Inside 50s, 8 Ground Ball Gets, 486 Metres Gained, 13 Tackles and 27 Pressure Acts

Note – The Saints won the match, and when Steele takes the game on, he usually has a significant impact. He should get the three votes in this one, but Jack Billings was also another solid contributor.


GWS vs Essendon

GWS 16.11 107 – Essendon 16.9 105

(GWS by 2 Points)

The Bombers trailed for the majority of the contest, but fought back and almost pinched the match.

Zach Merrett and Darcy Parish were influential, but it wasn’t enough to get the win.

For the Giants, Tim Taranto, Josh Kelly, Tom Green and Toby Greene were solid all day and in and amongst the best players on the field.

Note – The Bombers lost the match, but Merrett seemed everywhere at times and racked up a staggering 13 Inside 50s. The loss makes it no certainty, but the game was close, and Merrett was good in the last quarter.


North Melbourne vs Collingwood

North Melbourne 11.10 76 – Collingwood 14.10 94

(Collingwood by 18 Points)

The Pies finally got back on the winner’s list, and it was Jordan De Goey who found some form and put on a show up forward with 6 Goals.

Darcy Moore has also been a Pie out of form in recent weeks, but he went down back and proved he is more valuable on the defensive end. Brayden Maynard was solid down back for the majority of the contest, and the run and carry of Jack Crisp helped create scoring chances.

For the Kangaroos, Aaron Hall and Jack Ziebell were again their best, but many of their possessions were cheap ones on the back-half.

Vote Chances

Brayden Maynard – 32 Disposals (26 Effective), 10 Marks (3 Intercept Marks), 4 Rebound 50s, 574 Metres Gained, 6 One Percenters and 4 Spoils

Scott Pendlebury – 21 Disposals (19 Effective), 5 Marks, 6 Clearances, 6 Score Involvements, 28 Pressure Acts and 2 Goals

3 Votes (Collingwood) Jordan De Goey (3) ⭐⭐

17 Disposals, 6 Marks (6 Marks Inside 50, including 3 Contested), 9 Score Involvements, 4 Ground Ball Gets and 6 Goals

Note – The Pies found some form, and so did De Goey. He was the most important player on the ground when the match was up for grabs, and six goals should be enough to get the three votes.

Melbourne vs Sydney

Melbourne 10.7 67 – Sydney 8.10 58

(Melbourne by 9 Points)

The Demons were tested on a Saturday Night at the MCG, but they stood up in a gutsy performance to be the only remaining undefeated side.

Clayton Oliver was again influential in the middle of the ground, and James Harmes played his best game of the season.

Christian Petracca had an influence, and Tom McDonald continues his excellent form with 4 Goals.

For the Swans, Callum Mills was in and amongst the action for most of the contest, and Luke Parker was another solid contributor.

Vote Chances

Tom McDonald – 18 Disposals (13 Effective), 5 Marks (2 Marks Inside 50), 7 Score Involvements, 2 Goal Assists and 4 Goals

Christian Petracca – 28 Disposals (17 Contested), 5 Clearances, 6 Inside 50s, 13 Ground Ball Gets, 8 Tackles, 24 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal

Note – The Demons were challenged in this clash, but Oliver continues his solid form and is moving up the leaderboard of the predictor fast. He featured in all the significant statistics and should get the maximum votes.

Port Adelaide vs Adelaide

Port Adelaide 12.15 87 – Adelaide 5.8 38

(Port Adelaide by 49 Points)

The Power continued their winning streak over the Crows, and their defenders made it challenging for Adelaide.

The Crows did have many forward 50 entries, but Tom Clurey, Tom Jonas and Darcy Byrne-Jones stood up on the defensive end.

Travis Boak won the medal for Best on Ground, and Connor Rozee and Charlie Dixon were solid contributors throughout the contest. Scott Lycett won the ruck battle, but will face the tribunal for a rough tackle.

For the Crows, Rory Laird and Rory Sloane had decent games in the middle, but the Crows failed to convert chances going forward.

Vote Chances

Scott Lycett – 18 Disposals, 7 Intercept Possessions, 5 Score Involvements, 5 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles, 8 One Percenters and 6 Spoils

Connor Rozee – 23 Disposals (10 Contested), 5 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 8 Ground Ball Gets, 6 Tackles, 22 Pressure Acts and 1 Goal

3 Votes (Port Adelaide) Travis Boak (9) ⭐⭐

28 Disposals (10 Contested), 6 Clearances, 4 Inside 50s, 7 Score Involvements, 7 Ground Ball Gets and 1 Goal Assist

Note – Boak won the medal, but this was a difficult match to split the votes with the Power defenders making it almost impossible for the Crows to be effective up forward. Boak gets the nod because he won the medal, but who knows which way the umps will go in this one.


Hawthorn vs West Coast

Hawthorn 8.12 60 – West Coast 14.14 98

(West Coast by 38 Points)

The Eagles have struggled away from Optus Stadium this season, but they impressed at the MCG with a win over the Hawks.

The incredible running power of Andrew Gaff was on show, and he stood out racking up a lot of the football and using it efficiently.

Dom Sheed had a decent game in the middle as well as Tim Kelly, and Jack Darling continues his impressive form over the last few weeks. A little known Eagle, Brendon Ah Chee stepped up in the forward line and managed to boot 4 Goals.

For the Hawks, Tom Mitchell was very impressive in the middle of the ground, and James Worpel racked up plenty of the football.

Western Bulldogs vs Carlton

Western Bulldogs 16.11 107 – Carlton 13.13 91

(Western Bulldogs by 16 Points)

The Blues got the early jump on the Bulldogs on the back of an impressive 4 Goal opening half from veteran Eddie Betts. They looked like winners in the third term until the dogs big names decided to take the game on and reap the benefits.

Marcus Bontempelli was superb in the second-half of this match, and Tom Liberatore was a contested ball and clearance machine when the game mattered. Forward Josh Bruce stood up and booted 5 Goals, and Adam Treloar and Caleb Daniel were solid contributors.

For the Blues, Jacob Weitering was very good down back in the first 3 quarters, as was Sam Docherty.

Sam Walsh continued his decent form, and Eddie Betts hit the scoreboard.

Jacob Weitering – 23 Disposals (16 Effective and 13 Contested), 12 Intercept Possessions, 13 Marks (7 Contested and 7 Intercept Marks), 8 Rebound 50s, 490 Metres Gained, 9 One Percenters and 8 Spoils

Brisbane vs Fremantle

Brisbane 14.11 95 – Fremantle 10.11 71

(Brisbane by 24 Points)

The Lions got off to a fast start and led from start to finish, and the Dockers were never really in this match.

Jarryd Lyons was one of the best midfielders on the ground, and Hugh McCluggage continued his impressive season in the absence of Lachie Neale.

Daniel Rich set up play on the back-half, and Brandon Starcevich is beginning to become one of the most underrated defenders in the game. Charlie Cameron also gave the inexperienced Dockers defence a lot of headaches up forward.

For the Dockers, Nat Fyfe was excellent in the middle of the ground, doing the things that have got him votes in previous counts. He also managed to snag a goal and may feature in the votes in this match come Brownlow Night.

Votes Chances

Charlie Cameron – 14 Disposals, 11 Marks (8 Marks Inside 50), 10 Score Involvements and 3 Goals

Daniel Rich – 31 Disposals (25 Effective), 8 Intercept Possessions, 10 Marks (3 Intercept Marks), 4 Inside 50s, 7 Rebound 50s, 7 Score Involvements and 660 Metres Gained
