The MEGT Australia Rookie of the Year race is back for the 2019 season, where our AFL Nation experts will pick the first-year players or those on debut who impressed us during the previous round of footy.
Here are the nominees for Round 13.
Sydney Stack gathered 22 disposals and took six marks in Richmond’s loss to Adelaide on Thursday night in what was another strong performance by the defender who was overlooked in the 2018 draft.
Moore used the ball excellently in just his fifth game of footy against the Bombers on Friday night. He kicked a goal and took four marks.
Wilkie continues to impress down back for the Saints as a reliable player. He gathered 19 disposals and took six marks in the win over the Suns.
Duursma has been a consistent producer for the Power this year, gathering 21 disposals and taking 10 marks against the Dockers.
Sam Walsh has extended his lead in the MEGT Australia Rookie of the Year with another outstanding performance for the Blues in their loss to the Bulldogs.
Tarryn Thomas was excellent for the Roos back in his home state of Tasmania, kicking two goals and showing glimpses of how good he can be.
