    Andrews makes it in despite his injury layoff!

    Great recognition for Harris. Would've been a monty had he stayed healthy

    He's up against Rance, McGovern and Grimes as a tall defender. I have a feeling he'll be third in that list, so it depends how many mids they want to pack into the defensive pockets. :p

    Speaks volumes about Andrews' game, even with that time away with injury. Good on them both.

    Yeah Harris will miss out unfortunately, but still a good achievement to make the squad despite missing so many games.

    That is huge for Harris! By far the youngest of the nominated key defenders, probably one of the youngest nominated players overall. And got there after missing four weeks with a bad injury and coming back possibly a little underdone.

    The rest of the league is starting to realise what we already knew about him.

    Awesome to have two players in the squad! Especially impressive when you consider we finished on 5 wins/15th.

    I like Cotch a lot but has he really been AA calibre this year?

    Great news for both Harris and Beams. Not sure either quite make the final team but great recognition for the year.

    For the rest of the squad Coniglio is probably the unluckiest player

    not a fan of Stewart? thought he's been very good this year in that side. Can play smaller too so I'd almost have him in there as the 3rd tallish player

    I don't really consider him a tall defender, more a medium to small.

    So is Grimes really. Kind of like Gardiner in they can play tall but take the hybrid size players more often

    Based on history there won't be a third tall. Two big boys and four flankers. Thats your AA.

    Pity the AA team never gets to play a real game together

    Could be a good concept. AA team against the best of the rest .

    Make it a 44 man squad. Losers play the AA.

    Gardiner is probably better than him offensively, which is credit to his own development really. Wasn't he one of those who'd turn it over a heck of a lot as a kid?

    That’s not correct.

    2017: McGovern, Rance and Hurley
    2016: McGovern, Rance and Talia
    2015: Rance, Hurley, Gibson
    2014: Rance, Talia, Hooker
    2013: Thompson, Taylor, Johnson

    ...and so on. I went back 10 years and couldn’t find any less than three tall defenders named each year.

    Following the same selection logic, Andrews would be in with a shout, although I suspect Grimes, Stewart or Blicavs will get the nod ahead of him.

    Un ****** believable that Cotchin makes it ahead of Coniglio.
