: Round 4, 2012
Kymbolite / Glenelg / Fremantle / Brisbane
Lachie Neale’s 2020 season was one of the most dominant in AFL history as he won the Brownlow Medal, Leigh Matthews Trophy and the AFL Coaches Association Award as well as just about every media award going around. His 31 Brownlow votes and 10 vote victory over second place in the Brownlow medal, in a shortened season, demonstrates just how phenomenal his second season as a Lion was. The kid from Kybybolite in South Australia led the AFL in disposals (511) and contested possessions (237) on his way to a second All Australian Blazer and back-to-back Merrett-Murray medals.
In a shortened season with only 18 rounds played, Neale polled 31 votes, 10 votes clear of second place.
