Based on the 2019 home-and-away AFL season, I have picked my All Australian team.

There are no players that have been selected in the team after Round 23 that were selected in the after Round 6.

There are eight players that have been selected in the team after Round 23 that were also chosen in the team compiled after Round 11: Daniel Rich, Jeremy McGovern, Michael Walters, Jeremy Cameron, Brodie Grundy, Andrew Gaff, Marcus Bontempelli and Lachie Neale.

There are just seven players that have retained their spots in the team from the team compiled after Round 17: Daniel Rich, Brad Sheppard, Andrew Gaff, Lachie Neale, Michael Walters, Marcus Bontempelli and Jack Macrae.

There are two new co-captains in the team compiled after Round 23: Bachar Houli from the Tigers and Marcus Bontempelli from the Bulldogs.

Backs
Dylan Grimes has been an important part of the Tigers’ defence this season. Grimes is one of the reasons why the Tigers are considered contenders.

Harris Andrews has been a pivotal reason why the Lions made the top four.

Brad Sheppard maintains his spot in a side from Round 17 as he has still been an important part of the Eagles’ defence.

Nick Vlastuin has stepped up in the absence of Alex Rance and embraced his role playing on half back.

Jeremy McGovern is an important part of the Eagles team. Mcgovern is probably the best centre half back in the AFL.

Bachar Houli has great leadership qualities and has become an elite player in the competition.

Midfielders
Patrick Dangerfield is one of the best players in the competition.

Nat Fyfe is the second favourite to win this season’s Brownlow Medal for a reason.

Andrew Gaff has been a pivotal part of the Eagles’ midfield.

Forwards
Dustin Martin has been instrumental in the Tigers being the current premiership favourite.

Jack Darling is third on the goal-kicking list in the competition. Darling works hard around the ground, too.

Charles Cameron is also third on the goal list this season and has been an integral part of the Lions finishing in the top four.

Jeremy Cameron won the Coleman Medal this season.

Marcus Bontempelli is a great leader. He leads by his actions and never wastes a possession.

Followers
Brodie Grundy is unanimously known as the best ruckman in the competition, Grundy’s performance is Round 23 is indicative of why he is selected in this team.

Lachie Neale is a chance of winning the Brownlow Medal as he had a consistent season.

Jack Macrae doesn’t only accumulate plenty of the ball, but uses it constructively.

Interchange
Mark Blicavs fought his way into this All Australian team as he can play defence and as a second ruck.

Daniel Rich makes the Lions a better side as he provides a lot of run out of defence.

Michael Walters has played a pivotal role in the Dockers being a mathematical possibility to make the top eight up until Round 23.

Adam Trelaor has accumulated the most possessions in the AFL this season.
