Matthew Lloyd has given his thoughts on what the All-Australian side would look like if the season ends today.
As usual, Lloydy’s selection has sparked a lot of debate as the former Essendon champion included some unlikely names and snubbed some superstars.
With so many stars accross the league however, it’s impossible to leave at least a few superstars on the outside looking in.
Here’s Lloydy’s All-Australian side, for Sportsday Radio:
B – Lachie Whitfield, Alex Rance, Rory Laird
HB – Tom Stewart, Jeremy McGovern, Shannon Hurn
C – Steele Sidebottom, Nat Fyfe, Andrew Gaff
HF – Jordan De Goey, Jack Riewoldt, Luke Breust
F – Tom Hawkins, Ben Brown, Devon Smith
R – Max Gawn, Tom Mitchell, Patrick Cripps
Int – Brodie Grundy, Scott Pendlebury, Shaun Higgins, Dayne Beams
Lloyd then added his notable snubs. “Clayton Oliver, is out. James Sicily, and he’s out moreso now that he’s going to miss the last six rounds. Selwood, Dustin Martin… Jack Macrae.
And if you’re thinking the forward line is too tall, Lloyd addressed that too. “Possibly, but Riewoldt gets across the ground pretty well so Hawkins and Brown are my deepest.”
LLOYDY'S ALL AUSTRALIAN SIDE (so far):
