There’s always plenty of conjecture around the Virgin Australia All-Australian team selected at season’s end, but former Bomber Matthew Lloyd has brought the discussion ahead by selecting his best 22 at the halfway point of the season, as part of his media role with 3AW and the Sunday Footy Show.
West Coast’s Adam Simpson gets the nod to coach the side, while Richmond has the most players selected of any club, with four Tigers included.
Brisbane Lions, Carlton, Gold Coast, Melbourne and Port Adelaide are the only teams not represented.
