A Few Stats

Saints  captain Nick Riewoldt was named with the (C) and Chris Judd (VC). It is the fifth time Cat defender Matthew Scarlett and Crow midfielder Simon Goodwin have been given the honours with both players being selected in the back half. The most talked about position was the full-back position which was taken by Matthew Scarlett and Brian Lake was named in the back pocket. The surprise was that Leon Davis was named in the side and West Coast forward Mark LeCras missed out after his outstanding year. Paul Chapman was surprisingly named at half-forward and Brendon Goddard was named on the BENCH for his first selection in the team. Nick Dal Santo, Matthew Boyd and Adam Goodes round up the bench. Dane Swan was named at half-forward as expected and Brendan Fevola was worthily selected at full-forward after winning the Coleman Medal. Simon Prestigiacomo, Mitch Clark and Sam Gilbert were unlucky not to be selected. Lance Franklin surely could have been selected in the forward pocket?
