22Under22 team announced!

By

The 2014 22Under22 team has been announced at the AFL Players’ MVP Awards tonight, with Essendon young gun Dyson Heppell named captain for a second consecutive year and Hawthorn forward Jack Gunston selected as the vice-captain.

The AFL Players’ Association called on all footy fans to help decide the team by picking their best 22Under22 via the AFL Players’ Facebook page last month, and after thousands of votes were cast, the definitive 22Under22 team was decided.

Twelve of the 18 teams had a player in the final 22; Gold Coast led the charge, with six Suns named in the team. Collingwood was next best with three, while Adelaide, Essendon and the Western Bulldogs each had two players selected.

Nine of the 22 were also selected in the inaugural 22Under22 team, named in 2013. To be eligible for 22Under22, players must be aged 22 or under on Grand Final day.

  • No Ollie Wines??!! Wow...this list just lost any credibility it may have had.

  • How the heck did Ollie Wines miss out on this? Can only think that nobody thought he was under 22.

  • So how can the 2014 NAB rising star winner Lewis Taylor not make the team? This is some joke.

  • So despite having possibly the deepest stockpile of under 22 talent in the league, GWS has a total of one player in the side? It's because the team doesn't have many fans, and this side is a popularity contest chosen by biased fans. As such, move on... nothing to see here.

  • I love the team except for one player, Jake Carlisle. I do not feel that he played consistently enough or hard enough throughout the year to warrant a place in the team in comparison to other players who were nominated.
