Footy fans are more blessed than any other in the world of sport.

No sport combines such astonishing physical feats with such chills of euphoria, heartbreak, and everything in between the way Aussie Rules does.

A simple kick through the big sticks can swing the mood of fanbases around the country for an entire week, while an Anzac Day speccy can drop the jaws of a nation for a fleeting moment.

2024 has already provided its fair share of thrilling plays, profound performances and memorable matches, this list will go through only a fraction of them during the season so far.

Here is our mid-year list of the top 10 moments of 2024...

Honourable Mentions:

  • Jack Higgins' game-sealing out-of-bounds bomb (Round 2 vs Collingwood)
  • Richmond hold on for first win under Adem Yze (Round 3 vs Sydney)
  • Matt Cottrell controversial goal & dissent free kick seals win for Carlton (Gather Round vs Fremantle)
  • Scott Pendlebury's 10,000th disposal (ANZAC Day vs Essendon)
  • Izak Rankine clutch fourth-quarter snap on the left (Round 10 vs Collingwood)
  • Alex Pearce set-shot goal and Cam McCarthy tribute (Round 11 vs Collingwood)
  • McKay twins finally face off (Round 13 Essendon vs Carlton)

9. Clutch Simpkin and Curtis goals lead North to first win 

  • Round 13 (West Coast vs North Melbourne)

It's still fresh in our minds, but it's one of the feel-good stories of 2024 so far.

Led also by Nick Larkey's five goals and Paul Curtis' sealing snap, skipper Jy Simpkin earned the bulk of the praise in North Melbourne's first win of the season, collecting 28 disposals for the day and kicking two big goals in the fourth, including a go-ahead set-shot with two minutes left.

Clutch Curtis' snap put the finishing touches on a memorable day for Clarko's Roos.
