Ahead of the AFL Players’ Association MVP Awards on Thursday, August 30, each player from the 18 AFL clubs voted for who they consider their Most Courageous player.

The Robert Rose Most Courageous Award, presented by Movember, has been awarded annually since 1991, with Collingwood’s Gavin Brown winning the inaugural accolade.

To highlight how the definition of courage has evolved in the players’ eyes, the AFL playing group has made the decision to evolve the AFL Players’ Most Courageous Award for the first time in 2018 to ensure that courageous off-field acts can be honoured at the end of each season.

Earlier this week, the AFL Players’ Association, in partnership with the Movember Foundation, launched Courageous Conversations, a series where four AFL players shared their personal experiences with mental health.
