Writing for Melbourne’s Herald Sun, Essendon great, Matthew Lloyd has named his early season All-Australian team following the opening two months of the 2017 season.
There are some surprising selections, with Melbourne young gun, Clayton Oliver, who has averaged 31 disposals per game this season, left out of the side.
Meanwhile, Geelong star, Patrick Dangerfield, has been named on the bench, despite suffering from a form slump over the past month.
Jeremy Cameron and Josh Kennedy, currently one and two in the Coleman Medal race have been named at full forward and centre half-forward respectively, while Alex Rance and Michael Hurley are main big men down back.
Greater Western Sydney’s Josh Kelly, is doing his chance of earning big bucks at a new club no harm, with a stellar start to the season and has also earned a spot in the side on the wing.
