Brownlow Medal 2021 Nominees:
Following past years, there can be announced 4 leading candidates for the 2021 Brownlow Medal. They are:
- Marcus Bontempelli
- Clayton Oliver
- Sam Walsh
- Ollie Wines
Who are favourites to win?
The count seems to be a three-horse race with Western Bulldogs skipper Marcus Bontempelli set to battle it out with Port Adelaide star Ollie Wines, and Melbourne ball magnet Clayton Oliver.
Bontempelli has been seen as a contender all year but a late surge of form has seen Wines take over favoritism.
Other contenders to take ‘Charlie’ home are St Kilda’s courageous co-captain, Jack Steele, and Carlton rising star, Sam Walsh.
