    AFLPA Best 22 under 22

    Second year this has run. It's a fan voting "award" on the AFLPA FB page.

    Basically the AFLPA Board nominate 45 players (backs, mids, rucks, fwd) and you choose your best 22 in position.

    Since it's fan based, it's likely to be as much a popularity thing than merit but I found it interesting enough trying to decide on a team.

    Can be done here https://www.facebook.com/AFLPlayers/app_781477995236341

    Only really week line is the rucks.


    Since I'm starting the thread, may as well post the 22 I chose, was looking for a reasonably well structured side, might be a little tall down forward and a little too inside through the middle.

    Weird that Brodie Grundy isn't an option in the rucks.

    Yeah, can only assume they've gone on games played, as only other option would be Lycett and he's played fewer games again. Really shows how few ruckmen come through at a young age.

    No Cam Sutcliffe, despite playing every game in a top 4 (or 5) side. Averaging 16 disposals and 3.5 tackles, at least as good as Trent McKenzie, Steven May, Jack Newnes. Yet doesn't even get in the options.

    Lachie Neale as an inside ball winner should be thereabouts too (he's at least an option). There's plenty of talent in the mids though.

    I did mine and it's very similar, pretty sure I didn't have McDonald or Brad Hill in mine and think I might have gone smaller for Lynch (Darling at CHF).

    The mids were tough to do, really tough. Scary how young a few of those guys are really. Atley and Smith in particular for me I felt should be older than that!

    The rucks really are horrible though, that's for sure.

    I can't remember who the other ruck option was too but I thought they were better than Witts.

    Longer, iirc.

    In fairness to Elliott, he is certainly better than Bonts at this point in time. Langdon and McDonald in over Atley is also a pretty awful decision. Though I guess when it's a fan vote you should expect moronic selections, have to say for the most part it isn't that bad though.

    Remember this competition is at least partly, if not fully, popularity based. It might explain the Witts over Longer, Elliot over Lynch and Langdon over McDonald/Atley/Hombsch decisions.

    Re: AFLPA Best 22 under 22

    So were O'Meara & Crouch exempt for some reason?

    Because both of them are probably in the best 10 under 22 let alone the best 22.

    Both of them deserve a gig ahead of the likes of Bontempelli.

    > Crouch only played half a season but he racked up more touches in those 11 games than Bont did in 16.
    > O'Meara was one of the leading tacklers in the league whilst consolidating his brilliant debut year.
