Bye this week so have some fun predicting the winners at the end of year awards.

Rookie of the year - Wishart
Most Improved - Loiero, Meaney or King smokies
Best back - Munster or Hughes based on Papenhuyzen winning the main award
Best forward - Harry Grant
Player of the year - Any of the 4 spine members can take this out depending on injuries and run of form but I'm going for Papenhuyzen

I think rookie of the year is limited to first grade players based on past winners

I agree Sua didn't play first grade so won't be rookie of the year. I would actually pick Alec MacDonald but Wishart will probably get it.
