    Am I missing something? He'll be 23 at the start of the 2019 season, so not sure how he'd be eligible in 2019 and 2020.

    No, I was. Thought I posted this in McGrath's thread. :p

    Although Merrett could be back to back VC, I suppose?

    Think it was more a product of the role he was playing - Actually thought his second half of the year was better than his first half of the year, because he was obtaining more possessions in the forward half and was therefore more damaging - Thought he was better in 2016.

    He's ineligible, but lets have a mini-competition just for fun:

    1. Post below with the number of votes you think he'll get.
    2. Vote in the poll as well so we can see what the majority thinks.

    *Poll closes at about 9.45, before the last few rounds and winner are announced (although my maths is notoriously bad so we'll see if it works properly or not :p )

    ZMerrett to poll 22 but I reckon Dusty will poll in the low to mid 30s

    I am surprised that Zach is expected to be an early pacesetter as I felt he started a bit quiet before having a really strong patch up until he got suspended then kind of was average but then again average for Zach is outstanding for most.
