He wasn’t nominated for the squad, so can’t actually be selected. Surprising considering he’s clearly the best player under 22 in the competition.

If he were nominated for the squad, I’d say he’d be in my side. Personally I was shocked to see him missed, feel as though that’s a bit of Vic-Bias for you

I think that Rankine has been the best young small forward this season, especially considering he’s played in a relatively poor Suns team. However, if I could select Serong as a forward flank I would pick him over Rankine. Unfortunately, he’s not available to be selected as a forward as he isn’t a forward. Picking players in their positions build the team, not selecting the best 22 players available.

Naughton is better than McKay, but Naughton has had one good game this season. You can’t kick 5 goals in 7 games and expect to be touted as a premier forward option. Baker has been very good this year, could definitely argue him in the side. Wouldn’t have Cerra over Perryman/Walsh/McCluggage on a wing, and wouldn’t put Serong inside the centre instead of Smith/McGrath/Simpkin/Brayshaw.

I agree with you that Rozee’s 2019 was better than Rankine’s 2020, but for this side Rankine fills that small forward role who can create something out of nothing. Miers can also do it to an extent, but Rankine is a genuinely exciting talent

Both have had fantastic seasons, and I’m sure Serong wins Rising Star, but which midfielders have they been better than over the course of the season?

The home teams all got given wins in each of the match ups, rather than analysing who would actually win the matches
