In what most would consider a shock, it's taken 10 rounds for North Launceston skipper Brad Cox-Goodyer to enter the State League player of the year votes.
Taking out the award last season with 21 votes, the star Northern Bomber averages 19 disposals this season to sit 11th in the 2020 tally but competition for votes in his side has been strong with 14 of his teammates polling.
Mark Walsh (one) joined the skipper in picking up his first votes since returning from the NTFA while Jackson Callow and Alex Lee sit fifth on the player of the year leaderboard with seven.
Taylor Whitford, Josh Ponting, Sherrin Egger, Corey Nankervis, Jay Foon, Jack Avent, Bart McCulloch, Braden van Buuren, Jakob Laskey, Oliver Sanders and Dan Withers have all picked up votes throughout the year, showing the incredible depth of the ladder leaders and reigning premiers.
It took 26 disposals for Cox-Goodyer to claim best-on-ground honours in front of Clarence's Chris Nield (five goals) and Walsh in the Bombers' nine-point victory over the rising Roos.
No Launceston players featured in the votes in their heavy Lauderdale defeat as former Brisbane Lion Josh McGuinness claimed top honours and moved into third position thanks to his 23 disposals.
He's earned nine votes this season to be equal with Blue Dylan Riley, one vote behind Tiger Kieran Lovell and five behind Jobi Harper.
McGuinness, whose brother Matt is now on North Melbourne's list, was joined in the votes by Will Poland (nine rebound 50s) and Harry Richmond (five goals).
Former Hawthorn Hawk Lovell missed out on votes in the Tigers' Wednesday clash against North Hobart but made up for it in Sunday's win over Glenorchy, collecting a massive 40 disposals all over KGV to get three.
Teammate Lachie Griggs had the rare distinction of claiming four votes in the week thanks to two two-voters while Will Campbell (three against North Hobart) and Jack Bilson (one against Glenorchy) joined in.
North Hobart draft chance Sam Collins claimed one vote.
