TIGANI’S TOP 20: Star trio miss out again

TIGANI’S TOP 20: Star trio miss out again

Tomorrow morning my top GDFL players ranked from 1. to 20. will be released in the Geelong Advertiser’s “Addy Footy Fix” lift out.

What was initially a list of 60 players was strategically trimmed to a final 20,  forming a dream team of current players varying in age, height, on field positions and leadership roles.

Sadly, for the second straight year, interleague heroes Jake Barlow (Bell Post Hill), Rob Logue and Michael Grozdanovski (Inverleigh) have just missed the cut along with a handful of stars from the Geelong West Giants.

“How could you not have Jake Barlow in it?” asked BPH forward Nick Costello this evening.

“He’s got the best hands in the competition, that’s not just at Bell Post Hill but the entire competition.”

It is important to note that a number of well credentialed players were overlooked from the list due injuries or unavailability so far in 2018.

They include: Caleb Bacely (Bell Post Hill), Alexander Bowles (Thomson), Ashley Brown (East Geelong), Rhys Burke (Bell Post Hill), Bradley Carlton (Werribee Centrals), Matthew Costello (Winchelsea), Scott Galloway (Geelong West), David Holzfeind (Bell Post Hill), Jared Matheson (Thomson), Jamie Pitman (Anakie), Tane Rabbas (Bell Post Hill), Ryan Rich (East Geelong), Dylan Shelley (Corio), Jackson Smith (Winchelsea), Brayden Sneddon (Werribee Centrals), Luke Turner (Bell Post Hill) and Brent Watkins (Belmont Lions).
