As we cross the halfway mark of season 2019, it’s time to have a look at which veterans are excelling despite entering the twilight of their careers.

Last week we looked at the top 10 players aged 23 and under, however, this time we’ve turned out attention to those in their 30s.

This countdown is based on players’ 2019 achievements.

Here are Zero Hanger’s top 10 players aged 30 and over:


10. Shaun Higgins

For what has been a frustrating season to date for the Kangaroos, their flashy on-baller in Higgins has continued to rack up possessions in midfield. Higgins sits 16th in the league for average disposals at 28.6 a game, along with over 400 metres gained per match.
