Coleman Medalist Scott Cummings has named his All-Australian spine after 19 rounds.
The former AFL spearhead selected his full-back, center half-back, center half-forward and full-forward.
“The spine that I’ve picked is cut and dry and it’s pretty basic,” Cummings said on SEN WA Breakfast.
Cummings explains his four key position selections below:
FF: Charlie Curnow (Carlton)
“That’s why Charlie Curnow is at full-forward because he is leading the Coleman Medal right now.
“He’s kicked more goals than any other player in the competition, which would suggest that right now he’s the best full-forward in the competition.
“He averages more goals than anyone else in the competition and his job in that very position is to kick goals.
“He’s doing it better than anyone else right now.”
CHF: Jeremy Cameron (Geelong)
“There’s only one in mind for center half-forward, that’s Jeremy Cameron.
“Second in the Coleman and third in scoring involvements.
“I think he’s got center half-forward locked.”
CHB: James Sicily (Hawthorn)
“There’s a discussion to be had there between James Sicily and Darcy Moore.
“I’m going to sit with James Sicily.”
FB: Tom Barrass (West Coast)
“I’ve got four (contenders).
“Clearly Tom Barrass is very, very good. Steven May gets in there as well. Alex Pearce is absolutely deserving of a conversation. And the other one I’m throwing in is Sam Taylor.
“I think I’m going with Tom Barrass.”
