We’re at the halfway point of the 2019 AFL season, which means there’s no better time to have a look at who’s taking home Charlie this season.

The AFL’s most prestigious individual award has been quite hard to pick this season, with fans and experts divided as to who this year’s favourite is.

Can Patrick Cripps make history by joining a very short list of players to win the Brownlow despite playing in a wooden spoon side?

Has Lachie Neale done enough for his new club to bring the medal back to Brisbane? Can one of Geelong or Collingwood’s elite midfielders stand out enough from their own teammates to claim the award?

Can a ruckman like Brodie Grundy or Max Gawn swoop from outside the midfield to steal the medal?

We got Roar AFL expert Marnie Cohen on the Game of Codes podcast to run the microscope over all the big contenders and pick their favourites, smokeys and everything in between.
