  2. The standout omission for me is Clayton Oliver. Surely he’s ahead of Seb Ross and Tom Scully.
    As a Crows person, I was surprised to see Tom Lynch in the 40.
    Unsure also about Neville Jetta. He couldn’t have averaged 3 goals per game. That’s how I read his summary.

    Thank you for the information. Good stuff.

  3. I agree with the general consensus that Oliver was robbed.

    I must also say that I’m a little surprised that Bontempelli made the cut – after round 7, he only averaged 96.5 for the year. I realise that SuperCoach scores are not everything when it comes to All Australian selection, but for midfielders it seems like a reasonable guide.

    1. 5/6 DEF (Missed McGovern, named on bench though)
      5/6 MID (Missed Ryder, named in ruck and had on FWD Line)
      5/6 FWD (Missed Daniher)
      2/4 Interchange (Miss J.Selwood and Shiel)

      Overall had 19/22 – I’ll take that. Should have known better they do bench pretty much exclusive MIDs rather than team versatility.

      Not quite sure J.Selwood had the year to be all AA and probably got named on name basis but anyway.

  6. Rance named captain… you can tell KB had a big say on the All Australian.
    I agree with most selections in the overall team, but the 40 man squad could have a lot of changes.

  7. So Selwood missed 4 games, got 1 touch v Freo and then got injured, injured and didnt play all of the Swans game. 6 games you can basically write off.
    17 touches in a loss to the Pies. 24 touches in a loss to the Suns. 24 touches in a loss to the Dons. 19 touches in a loss to the Eagles.

    Could be one of the worst selections I have seen. Even if he played every game fully he was borderline AA squad. LOL
