I am inspired by the 'Proud of Silvagni' thread and our crop of young players. We have Cripps, and in the last 2 years six other rising stars being Weitering, Marchbank, SPS, Cuningham, Jack and Charlie. Players have to be under 21 on 1 January, and they must not have played more than 10 senior matches. So that rules out Williamson (15 games), Fisher (17) and Pickett (10, but has turned 21). It also rules out Cuningham (11 matches) and yes a player can be nominated in a second year if eligible. I think all of Williamson, Fisher and Pickett deserved nominations. Eligible players on our list are: - McKay - Macreadie - Polson, and - Kerr. I am starting this thread before our new trade and draft class, why not. I think if McKay or Macreadie plays 15 games or so, they could both figure prominently in the Rising Star voting.
