Connor? He’s quick AF.
Last years APS athletics finals results for Andy:
Boys Open 110 Metre Hurdles, 1st McGrath, Andrew Brighton Grammar 13.91
Boys Open 100 Metre, 3rd McGrath, Andrew Brighton Grammar 10.95
Boys Open High Jump, 5th McGrath, Andrew Brighton Grammar 1.90m
West coast are the last team to do it, but because of GC concessions they didnt get pick 1.
How often has a wooden spooner made finals the next year? Brisbane 1998 to 99 would be one, but I don’t think Des Headland played finals that year
Yep sorry I miss read the number 1 pick
Travis Johnstone would be the last one
@Munchen_Don getting through the stats 30 seconds faster than me.
I should get back to work
Goddard on Talking Footy was asked about Andy “if he doesn’t win the rising star, I think it’s rigged”
So the answer to the man’s question is yes then,… Andy McStar will be the 1st NUMBER ONE draft pick, to play finals in his 1st year on an AFL.list.
…since Travis Johnstone.
Just saw that Will Hayward is the R23 nomination. Do they announce the winner during the bye weekend?
You’re right. Came in for a losing final in 98 after not playing since June.
Yeah. Going to be awkward when Burton wins it and McGrath gets the Norm Smith.
Yeah I hope I haven’t jinxed it!! But yeah - Travis Johnstone played a semi in 98
There is always a leak in the rising star result (hi David King hi). So all you have to do is follow the money.
Burton is odds on. He wins.
Who votes and the voting system basically guarantees the odds on favourite wins anyway. They don’t vote until the end of the year, and everyone’s been soaking in the “Burton’s the best, McGrath’s next” coverage for the last couple of months. Then the WA and SA voters will have their "biased Vics overlooking <insert WA/SA player> " nominees, and that’s the voting.
As sad as it is, there is no way the AFail will allow MCG to win the Rising Star. The ‘optics’ will not permit it.
It will be nice to hear from him on this weeks Hard Tag. I like the relaxed format and both Belly and Hooksy are funny buggers. Where is Jack Post from? I like that he sounds a tragic Bombers supporter.
Was actually thinking about having a punt however you’ve steered me clear and I’m in total agreement about your thoughts on there most definitely being a leak.
