Sandhurst's Darby Graham

Sandhurst's Darby Graham

Who are you tipping?

6.10pm: We will have some serious reader polls later in the night, but here’s a not so serious one to get you in the mood.

A hint – if I was framing a market 6.30pm-7pm would be a short-priced favourite.

6.05pm: Sandhurst’s Lachlan Sharp, Golden Square’s Tom Toma, Strathfieldsaye’s Lachlan Sharp, Kangaroo Flat’s Jon Lanyon among the leading contenders who are in the room.

Kyneton has a strong representation as well. Rhys Magin and Ben Weightman will both poll well for the Tigers.

6.02pm: Invited guests only tonight. Noticeable absentees include Strathfieldsaye’s Kallen Geary and Golden Square’s Jack Geary.

That means Kallen and Jack won’t win the Michelsen Medal. I would have thought Kallen Geary would poll enough votes to be in the mix.

Jack Geary did miss five games through injury.

6pm: For those BFNL fans who are on Facebook – Kieran Iles will be live streaming the Betty Thompson and Michelsen Medal vote counts on the Bendigo Addy sport page.

Those who aren’t on Facebook – I’ll provide you with round-by-round voting for both counts.

5.55pm: Hi folks, welcome to The Bendigo Club for the 2017 BFNL Michelsen Medal and Betty Thompson Medal vote counts.

The feature awards won’t be decided until later on in the night. For the next hour or so the winners of the awards decided at the pre-Michelsen Medal count last week will be presented with their trophies/medals.
