We've reached the top 20 of our top 50 players list for 2024, where the cream of our competition's crop awaits their unveiling.

Seven members of last year's All-Australian side have already been named, highlighting the surplus of talent on display in the league.

The future of the league is in good hands, as is the upcoming season, where the following stars, young and old, will shine.

PART I: BEST PLAYERS OF 2024 (50-41)

2. 19 - Tom Green

Since his debut we have seen Tom Green rise rampantly up the midfielder rankings, building from 15 disposals per game to 20, to 24, to 32; he has quickly reached the statistical summit of AFL ball-winners.

16 Brownlow votes in 2023 suggests he may be a couple of years's away from achieving that level of individual honour, but in a side that is suddenly pushing for premiership contention, he is clearly the No.1 midfielder at GWS, and may be for the next decade.

He is a Patrick Cripps prototype with slightly more flash but slightly less grunt, though with another couple of years and 50-odd more games of experience, why can't he surpass the Brownlow medallist?
