Zero Hanger’s Rolling All-Australian side – Round 21
IN: Jeremy McGovern, Charlie Cameron
Two changes to the side prior to Round 21 getting underway, with both the backline and forward line undergoing minor changes.
Down back, Eagles premiership star Jeremy McGovern has been the barometer for his side in recent weeks. As a key defender, McGovern ranks above average for disposals and rebound 50s, elite for intercept possessions – ranking first in the competition for total and average intercepts.
After making the last three All-Australian teams, McGovern has again been a rock for his side, currently sits inside the top 10 for marks both contested and uncontested.
McGovern comes at the expense of Mark Blicavs, who has been solid in his new role this year but is, like Geelong, slightly dropping in form at the worst possible time.
One of the most exciting season by a small forward to date, four goals on the weekend pushed Charlie Cameron into sixth spot in the Coleman medal race – six more than the next best small forward.
Cameron has been a huge reason for Brisbane’s rise, and seems to create something out of nothing when the ball enters inside forward 50.
The small Lion nudges Gary Ablett Jnr out of the side, both players have been stay-at-home forwards this year, and Cameron has proven more damaging for longer this season.
There were other names that came into consideration this week. Collingwood’s Adam Treloar enjoyed one of the more dominant individual performances against the Suns last week, and has been in career-best form.
