Well there you go, I thought Bont was a dark horse, what would I knowTim Watson and Nick Riewoldt have given their predictions heading into tonight’s Brownlow Medal count. It is expected to be one of the most hotly contested Brownlow’s in recent years, with Patrick Dangerfield, Lachie Neale, Marcus Bontempelli, Nathan Fyfe and Patrick Cripps the betting favourites.
Riewoldt believes the Geelong star will bring it home. “I think Dangerfield will win it,” he told SEN Breakfast.
“Lachie Neale is the other one. He’s a vote poller and he’s had a prolific year up there.”
As for Watson, he’s going with the gun Bulldog. “I’m sitting with Bontempelli,” he said. “I’m thinking Dangerfield and Bontempelli may actually tie for the Brownlow.”
The Brownlow gets underway at 8:20pm AEST tonight.
I reckon the ball magnets (Macrae & Dunkley) will take votes away from him.Well there you go, I thought Bont was a dark horse, what would I know
