The All-Australian blazer is a coveted honour to be acknowledged in the best 22 of the season, and 2022 brings up a new opportunity for some first-timers to obtain an AA nod.
Whether they've been unlucky to not make it in the past, or are up and coming and poised to break out this year, here are 10 players who are most likely to become a first-time All-Australian in 2022.
1. Jacob Weitering
The star defender for Carlton was extremely unlucky not to make the All-Australian team last season, but 2022 could be his year.
Weitering's 2021 was very impressive, averaging a career-high 16.4 disposals and 7.4 marks per game.
The 24-year-old rated elite with Champion Data amongst defenders for disposals, marks, rebound 50's, contested one-on-one contests and spoils, but still couldn't break into the side with Steven May and Aliir Aliir making it over him.
Another season with similar stats and an improved Carlton defence may be too hard for All-Australian selectors to ignore.
