Was just looking to see what the qualification rules are for Rising Star. 10 or less games and under 21 on Jan 1, 2021.

Then I went looking to see if McAsey would qualify. 10 games. How convenient. Luck or good management? Perhaps this is why we didn't see him at the end of the year.


Other high chances: Schoenberg (8 games), Sholl (8), Hamill (8), Butts (2g, 20yr 11m), McHenry (8).

Then you will have this years high draft picks.

Plus Gollant, Worrell and OConnor.

Shouldn't be a bad year for us for rising star hopefully.

Yeah you'd think we have four pretty big chances at nominations, potentially five depending on how McHenry develops next year

McAsey would have a pretty good start on the "body of work" requirement for a round 1 nomination. Because that's how it works so we keep hearing.

I thought Witherden got the dual nom a few years back? Could be wrong
Hard to understand why Alex is on the outer at Brisbane unless he's not following his coach's instructions, always seemed a pretty decent lad from the outside so you wouldn't think it would be off field issues. I reckon he might have Vic clubs especially sniffing around.

If we get picks 1 and 2 expect them both to play as much as possible and likely receive one each.

Sholl, Hamill, McAsey, Schoenberg, McHenry, Worrell all good chances.

Rowell to win though unless one of our top 2 picks dominate.

You'd think the Cats would be all over him, being a Geelong lad himself

No clue why he isn't getting games though unless he's just not in the best of form compared to 2017/18. Hell, old Grant Birchall is ahead of him in the pecking order

We should get a good number of noms but Rowell (injury pending) will absolutely slay it
Why wont Rowell win this years? Surely he put in a pretty good body of work before being injured. Has anyone subsequently gone past it? I admit Ive hardly seen any AFL this year, so if I'm miles off don't be too harsh.

Unless he gets an injury meaning he is out for more than 10 games, Rowell's name will already be engraved onto the trophy.
You also need to consider his body of work this year apparently

Rowell could kick goals for the opposition and they still would have to give them the votes, based on that body of work bs.

Rising star should have been Quanor. He got a serious rip injury then blew that aside and back to business.
You recognise recruits that are a bit hesitant or touchy after a spell out through injury. He was like a glove in his role so big ups from me.
