EAST FREMANTLE are up next in our Player of the AFL Era series which will be run through our Instagram channel starting at 12.30pm today. The Eastern Ranges All-Star voting was completed yesterday with Sam Mitchell announced as the winner and captain of the Ranges’ All-Star side. Looking at East Fremantle’s side, it is absolutely bursting with talent, so much so some 200-gamers miss out on the top 16 voting. With nine All-Australians, seven best and fairests, two Brownlow Medals and four premierships between them, Ben Cousins and Simon Black are seeded first and second, while Josh J Kennedy and Aaron Sandilands are among an elite group of talents.
The voting will run over the next four days starting today, with the winner to be decided by Wednesday night (unless extra time and the full 24 hours is needed in the final vote). The next club involved in the voting process is East Fremantle starting on Sunday next week. All eligible players were selected thanks to the Draft Guru site.
