Who has the best onballers? We rank every club

It is not surprising that Collingwood has the best midfield in the league.

With the work of Brody Grundy, touching the throats of Steele Sidebottom, Scott Pendlebury, Adam Treloar and in 2019, Dayne Beams, the Magpies "The engine room will be ready and ready to leave.

The West Coast Premiers made the first five, while the Hawks – with the Brownlow medal Tom Mitchell – were ranked in the center of the group.

As most would probably expect, Gold Coast languishes at the bottom of the standings, though with Lachie Weller, Touk Miller and David Swallow, have the core of a good midfield that can continue to build around.

Collingwood has already boasted the best midfield of the competition, and then returned and brought Premiership star Dayne Beams 2010 to Brisbane, yet another A-grader alongside Steele Sidebottom, Scott P endlebury and Adam Treloar, while Taylor Adams had an incredible Grand Final and is not far from that parenthesis and Brayden Sier is developing rapidly. Brodie Grundy had long threatened to take on the competition and now sits comfortably alongside Max Gawn as the first AFL ruckman. Collingwood ranked first for the sales and free space, the second for the disputed assets and the fourth for the interiors of the 50s last season, and a stacked engine room should only improve. Imagine if Daniel Wells could stay in shape.

Strait as the best AFL midfielder, Richmond still boasts one of the most talented ball teams in the world. Dustin Martin remains one of the most influential players in the competition, with his ability to go on as crucial as his work outside the center. Shane Edwards did the All Australian team last year, while Trent Cotchin, Kane Lambert and Dion Prestia turned out to be winners of the ball out of center. But why am I not the number one? Perhaps it is up to the loss of key depth players during the most recent NAB AFL trading period. Much could count on young people like Jack Graham, Connor Menadue and maybe even Riley Collier-Dawkins should go on strike in 2019.

Despite losing Dylan Shiel (Essendon) and Tom Scully (Hawthorn) in the off season, the Giants are still laden with talent. The central line of Josh Kelly, Callan Ward and Lachie Whitfield – who will probably move farther after playing in mid-2018 – is as good as any in the competition. In Ward they have one of the toughest players out there and Whitfield and Kelly are two of the best runners and players.

With probably the best ruckman in circulation, it is not surprising that the Demons midfield is ranked in the top five. The useful work of Max Gawn at the stops, combined with a midfield that boasts Jack Viney and Clayton Oliver, saw the Dees score 3 in the competition for the liberations in 2018. Angus Brayshaw had a formidable season, ending a shock third in Brownlow, and be again in solidarity with the 2019 Melbourne campaign. The addition of Braydon Preuss adds a bit of depth to their ruck stocks, while a new start for Kade Kolodjashnij could provide another spark to the Dees engine room.

This ranking probably will come to the Eagles, especially after completely dismantling Melbourne's engine room in last year's preliminary final and equaling Collingwood's boasted unit in their three games. In 2018 the development of Elliot Yeo in a Grade A midfielder, the excellent form of Jack Redden, the best season of Mark Hutchings and the rebirth of Chris Masten put pressure on Luke Shuey, who reminded everyone of his class a Grand Final of all time. He throws Andrew Gaff, a contender of Brownlow until his suspension, and Nic Naitanui in the mix and is a 'class unit. There's a question about how deep the bats are in the midfield, but in the West Coast at full power they will line up against anyone.

Despite three of the best players in the competition available to them in 2018, the Cats admitted they were left behind last year's main midfield units. At the end of the season they ranked 17th in the competition for midfielders per game and embarrassed 13-4 in the final defeat by elimination in Melbourne. While a leaner Patrick Dangerfield and skipper Joel Selwood will lead the midfield again, Gary Ablett is expected to spend more time in attack this year. The cats have publicly invited Charlie Constable, Brandan Parfitt and Quinton Narkle to lead the improvement of the midfield in 2019.

Dylan Shiel alongside Dyson Heppell and Zach Merrett in the first rebound of 2019 will be a show for Bomber fans. Last year the Bombardiers were the non-finalists with the highest score with points from the game differential (4.7 per game) to sit seventh in the overall standings in the competition. No.1 Ruckman Tom Bellchambers faces a great season to keep in touch with the great men of the competition after 2018 in his career. It also looks like a great year for the first draft picks Darcy Parish and Andrew McGrath, respectively in their fourth and third seasons, to make their mark on permanent midfield roles. While David Myers was nominated bomber upgraded last year, he hopes Dylan Clarke and Kobe Mutch press for seats.

The Bulldogs midfield has some level A starts with Marcus Bontempelli and Jackson Macrae leading the charge. In 2018, Macrae averaged the second highest elimination rate of any player per game, behind Brownlow's mediator Tom Mitchell. The 24-year-old has had an elite season and in 2019 will need a repeat if the Dogs get ready for September. Tom Liberatore will be like a new recruit after missing last season with an ACL, and if he manages to rediscover his best, then the Bulldogs midfield will not be a success. The emergence of Josh Dunkley in the role of onballer in the second half of 2018, gives the dogs a little more depth in this area of ​​the terrain. They still have some young people arriving in the ranks that will improve with the experience. A puppy who is destined to make a senior footy crack this season is the father-son of director Rhylee West. The powerful midfielder is a competitive beast and his physicality around the race will certainly add another layer to the central core of the dogs in the middle.

The Crows identified that they needed more upper-middle classes when they pulled out two first-round pickups for Bryce Gibbs at the end of 2017, but the engine room remains their Achilles' heel. Losing the free agent Rory Sloane would have been a doomsday scenario last season, but, fortunately for the fans, he resumed work for five years. However, Adelaide has a fast-paced appearance, lacks depth and is an identity to the winners of the ball. With the ruckman Sam Jacobs on the wrong side of the 30 and Brad Crouch injured throughout the season, the Crows were the third worst team of last season (-2.4 per game) and at the center of the road for disputed assets.

Having lost Dan Hannebery to St Kilda, many responsibilities fall on the shoulders of the joint captains Kennedy and Parker. They will lead a rather inexperienced onball brigade, which will not mature deep in 2019. Florent and Heeney could become full-time midfielder next year, with Clarke helping him. The Swans almost broke even for the free spaces and the ball contested last season, but could find the task of winning the ball out of the center a little harder next year. That's why they slip out of the top half of the midfield standings.

This is a rising midfield and could probably be a little bit more high. Despite the loss of Dayne Beams in Collingwood, Lions have a great mix of players inside and out. Lachie Neale is a fantastic addition and, along with the four-time best and fairest winner, Dayne Zorko offers a good dose of one and two. Stefan Martin is 32 but does not show signs of slowing down in the ruck, while Hugh McCluggage and Jarrod Berry expect to build on promising second seasons. Brisbane has now developed a good depth in this department and should be the driving force for a better season.

Criticized for the lack of pace sometimes during 2018, power aimed at the speed of the draft with the acquisitions of Zak Butters, Xavier Duursma and Connor Rozee. It is expected to put pressure on the high-level midfielders who performed well below their best result in the last month of last year, when the Power fell from the final race. Classified n. 2 in the competition for the total distances after the season of home and away, it was the gap from the competitions that disappointed them the most. The new coach of the midfielder Jarrad Schofield has provided a new voice and cleaned the blackboard for competition for the commercials.

Roos' midfield looked very different in 2018. Jed Anderson had a breakout season, while Paul Ahern's emergence allowed North Melbourne to distribute the load more evenly. This allowed Captain Jack Ziebell to spend more time, which he did with great success. Shaun Higgins and Ben Cunnington continue to pave the way in the middle, but the addition of Jared Polec should add a little more support and add another dynamic to the group. In terms of depth, North Melbourne has options. After a disappointing 2018, Luke McDonald will try to rediscover his best form, and previously was assigned to a position in midfield, while young Luke Davies-Uniacke and Bailey Scott are waiting behind the scenes for an opportunity.

A midfield that has ranked among the best in the competition in the past few years has decreased and is remodeled, so losing the double medal Doig Lachie Neale is a blow that will require some work to be overcome. Connor Blakely seems that the man must come forward to support the superstar Nat Fyfe, and the Dockers will need more from Bradley and Stephen Hill while Adam Cerra and Andy Brayshaw continue to develop. Aaron Sandilands will soon deliver to the protégé Sean Darcy, and Freo's future ruck is in good hands. But get Fyfe out and the engine rooms start looking thin.

The Hawks midfield is in serious trouble. AFL.com.au had previously classified them to number 8. But when the news of the broken leg of the Brownlow medal Tom Mitchell emerged, the Hawks began to slide further, and further down ;order. While the 2018 season saw some young Hawk climb in the middle, too often Mitchell was left to carry the weight. And let's face it, the best player in the competition, according to the umpires, is irreplaceable. It has an average of 35 divestments per game, and it is unrealistic to think that someone like James Worpel, in his second season, will be able to fill Mitchell's shoes. There are certainly still good players in this starting midfield. Liam Shiels is the quietest player, while Jaeger O & # 39; Meara has made great progress last year. The veteran Shaun Burgoyne and the boom recruiter Chad Wingard will certainly spend the game time in the middle, which will help. But the loss of Mitchell will have a huge impact on the ability to win Hawks ball, and will seriously hurt their final prospects in 2019.

The acquisition of Dan Hannebery from Sydney was one of AFL's biggest off-season moves and Saints fans hope the Premiership star can regain his best form. Con un nucleo forte che include Jack Steven, il sempre migliorato Seb Ross e Jack Steele, una Hannebery che sparabbe avrebbe fatto molta strada per vedere i Saints salire. Con una miriade di vincitori di palla all'interno, il principale punto di domanda che incombe su questo centrocampo è il passo, il che significa che un'altra stagione forte di Jack Sinclair è cruciale.

Carlton sapeva che doveva migliorare la profondità di centrocampo e lo ha fatto in bassa stagione reclutando Will Setterfield, Sam Walsh e Liam Stocker. But the onball group remains light on A-Grade quality, mature talent and depth. Patrick Cripps is obviously a jet, while Marc Murphy and Ed Curnow are proven campaigners, but a lot of the heavy lifting still falls on some pretty young shoulders. Zac Fisher, Matthew Kennedy and Paddy Dow have shown plenty, but still need time to develop. It looks like a strong midfield in the making, with the right building blocks in place, but for now it remains one with plenty of potential and that's it.

Although ranked last, the Suns have done a lot to address arguably the weakest part of their list. While a total rebuild will likely take a few more off-seasons, in Jarrod Witts, Touk Miller, David Swallow and Lachie Weller, a decent nucleus is there. Acquiring model citizens Anthony Miles and George Horlin-Smith should help protect younger bodies like Brayden Fiorini, Jack Bowes and Will Brodie from having to do so much grunt work.
