And it's back (eventually)!

To recap, Lachie Neale was dominant winning the player of the year award last year in his debut season with the club, setting a new record number of votes polled. Dayne Zorko added a second place finish to go with his back-to-back victories in 2016-17, tying with Daniel Rich in his best finish to date. Our wingers took the next two positions, Hugh McCluggage and Mitch Robinson followed by goal machine Charlie Cameron. Noah Answerth capped off an excellent debut season by winning the rookie of the year award.

The record for the most number of individual votes cast was broken again, with 1136 votes cast in our round one game against the West Coast Eagles, topping the 1004 votes cast in our round nine performance against Hawthorn in 2018.

Can Lachie Neale go back-to-back to equal Dayne Zorko's record performance? Will Hugh McCluggage be able to take his game to a new level and be the first of the next generation to win the title? Will a fit Jarrod Berry start to push himself into contention? And who will take out the rookie of the year competition?

Former Player of the Year Winners:

2019 - Lachie Neale (59 votes)
2018 - Dayne Beams (36 votes)
2017 - Dayne Zorko (50 votes)
2016 - Dayne Zorko (50 votes)
2015 - Stefan Martin (53 votes)

Well its all over red rover. By this stage Neale probably has an unassailable lead.

Who's going to finish second?

I'm betting on Lyon but I hope it is either Hipwood or McStay. If this happens we will win a flag!!!!
