Caleb Daniel deserved to be in the starting 18 based on his 2020 home and away Season performance.
Harris Andrews took plenty of intercept marks and helped Brisbane gain the ascendancy in most of the games that the Brisbane Lions played.
Brad Sheppard is a quality midsized defender.
Brayden Maynard should have been chosen in the All Australian starting 18 as he had an outstanding Season.
Darcy Moore was the best centre half back, as Jeremy McGovern had injuries.
Liam Duggan is extremely underrated and was extremely consistent.
Sam Menegola deserved to be in the starting 18 and led by example, which is why he is Co-Captain.
Jack Macrae is a midfielder that plays predominantly in the centre of the ground. Like Sam Menegola, Jack Macrae leads by example.
Andrew Gaff deserved a spot on the wing in the 2020 AFL All Australian team.
Patrick Dangerfield played a lot of time in the forward line.
Charlie Dixon was an important part of Port Adelaide finishing on top of the ladder in the 2020 AFL home and away Season ladder.
Marcus Bontempelli had to be in the starting 18 based on his consistent form.
Dan Butler deserved to be in the forward pocket.
Tom Hawkins won the Coleman Medal.
Dustin Martin was one of the best players in the competition, playing mainly as a forward.
Nic Naitanui was probably the best ruckman in the competition.
Travis Boak was one of the best players in the AFL in the home and away Season 2020.
Lachie Neale will probably win the Brownlow Medal based on how consistent he was in the AFL in the home and away Season 2020.
Mark Blicavs is extremely versatile; he is possibly the best utility in the competition.
Jack Steele will probably win St Kilda’s best and fairest for AFL Season 2020 as he was very consistent.
Cameron Guthrie is a quality player who played more through the midfield in the AFL home and away Season 2020.
Jack Crisp was extremely consistent for Collingwood and deserved to be in the AFL squad of 40 at the very least.
