Few midfielders have started the season in as good form as Collingwood midfielder Steele Sidebottom and he might just be among the Brownlow leaders at this early stage.
Sidebottom’s 31 disposals against Hawthorn in round one could net him two votes, while he had clear best on ground performances against Carlton and Adelaide.
The 27-year-old was a big reason for Collingwood’s dominant win over Adelaide on Friday night as he gathered 43 disposals and 428 meters gained.
Sidebottom has always been an underrated player, but looks like he’s gone to a new level in 2018, getting more of the ball and doing more damage offensively.
