FOUR PLAYERS RECEIVE MAXIMUM BROWNLOW VOTES IN ROUND 5

According to Sportingbet’s AFL analysts, four players received maximum Brownlow Medal votes for their Round 5 performances.

Trent Cotchin, Patrick Dangerfield, Gary Ablett and Steve Johnson all picked up the three votes.

After five rounds, Sportingbet.com.au has Johnson on top with 10 votes and in front of Ablett (9 votes), Joel Selwood (8 votes) and Nick Riewoldt (7.5 votes).

“Johnson has polled in four of his opening five games and looks on target to surpass the 25 votes he finished on last year,” William Hill’s Andrew Brown said.

Johnson has firmed from $21 into $8 to win the 2014 Brownlow Medal since the start of the season, and is a fourth favourite behind Ablett ($4), Selwood ($6) and Pendlebury ($7.50).
