The Brownlow?

Pick The Brownlow 2018


Will it be Mitchell, or could it be Cripps?
or perhaps an outsider – not one of the tips.


It could be ruckman – it’s about time
Grundy and Gawn would be on the front line


Oliver, Martin, Sidebottom, Macrae
all could poll well on a given day


or p’raps the good players on the weaker teams
like Lachie Neal or maybe Dane Beams.


Rory Laird or Trent Cotchin, perchance Robbie Gray
all could be up there come Brownlow day


This year there are many who could be a show
Coniglio, Danger, deGoey and Yeo


It’s a pity we can’t pick Gaff or Nat Fyfe
They cannot win it, ‘coz they’ve been in strife


What about roughies who get under the radar
some player who the main press doesn’t favour?


Cunnington, Wyngard or Jaeger O’Meara
I’m starting to feel like I’m getting nearer.


Whitfield’s a vote catcher and so is Josh Kelly
and Buddy’s a stand out – and wouldn’t be silly.


But I reckon for mine – here’s a tip, and I’ll share it
Don’t be surprised if they call out Zach Merrett…


or Pendlebury, Selwood, Ablett or Heppell
all could be worthy of punting a shekel


But I am not psychic – I’m not in the know
So don’t ring The Rhymer if you lose your dough
