2017 Sandover Medal Subiaco Preview

 
The 97th Sandover Medal will be held tonight with a number of Subiaco players in the running to take out the WAFL’s most prestigious award.
 
 
After winning an equal season record 19 games; votes are likely going to be aplenty for Subiaco players, although the overall consistent performance of the team may be at the detriment of an overall winner.
 
Subiaco is guaranteed of at least a couple of wins on Sandover Medal night with the club to officially receive the Rodriguez Shield awarded to the best performing club over all three WAFL grades and gun forward Liam Ryan to claim his Bernie Naylor Medal as the league’s leading goal kicker in 2017.
 
As from a Subiaco perspective; these are some of the possible stories to watch across the evening.
 
UNTIMELY INJURY
There is every possibility that Subiaco midfielder Chris Phelan will be leading the Sandover Medal count after 9 rounds. However in a cruel twist, Phelan saw his dominant start to the season interrupted by an untimely knee injury. Phelan returned in last week’s Reserves Preliminary Final sparking hope of ending the season with a Premiership Medal, but as for Sandover night, he may have to take the consolation of being Subiaco’s leader at the midway mark.
 
HOME WITH A WET SAIL
Adam Cockie’s first half of the season was interrupted by lingering pre-season injuries and didn’t cement his spot in the team’s midfield until mid-season. However there have been few better and more dynamic players in the second half of the season. Cockie has been at his bullocking best throughout the second half of the season and could fly home with a set of five votes games courtesy of three or four best on ground performances.
 
THE CONSISTENT KITCH
Leigh Kitchin in his three seasons with Subiaco has been the model of consistency. His 2017 season may have been the best at the club though as he improved his numbers across the board and took on extra responsibility as a leader of the midfield group. Always in the umpires eyes in the engine room and with a history of grabbing some minor votes, if Kitchin can poll a few best on ground games, he could be another one to really press for the 2017 Sandover Medal.
 
X-FACTOR
If you are looking for a surprise pick in the 2017 Sandover Medal, Liam Ryan might be the best shot of an unlikely win. Ryan puts in eye-catching displays every week and with improved consistency in 2017 including three bags of six goals, Ryan could be a surprise winner of what is traditionally a midfielder’s medal. Despite playing in just 16 games last year, Ryan polled 19 votes to be Subiaco’s second best. With more goals and more high flying marks in 2017; Ryan is a definite smoky for the award.
 
DEFENDER’S VOTES
While it would be highly unlikely that any of Subiaco’s defenders will take out the main award, there will no doubt be some banter between the backmen about who gets the most votes on Sandover night. Aaron Heal, Jordan Lockyer, Angus Litherland, Declan Jackson and Wayde Twomey have been mainstays of the back six for Subiaco in 2017 and have done a great job as the number one team defence in the league. How many votes that translates to, will be seen by the end of the night.
 
SportFM and FootyRadio will have all of the action of Sandover Medal night. Keep an eye on Subiaco’s social media pages for more updates of the night.
