Lions star into co-lead, two votes separate top four

Brisbane’s Lachie Neale joined Touk Miller in the lead for the AFL Coaches Association champion player of the year award as the top four are separated by just two votes.

Neale led the Lions to an important 33-point win over Carlton on Sunday, earning nine votes for his 32 disposals, nine clearances and goal.

That lifted the gun midfielder onto 88 votes, joining Gold Coast’s Miller on that tally with two home and away rounds remaining.

Miller was tagged during the Suns’ loss to Hawthorn, with Finn Maginness earning five votes for his role on the ball-winner.

Melbourne duo Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca are two votes behind Miller and Neale on 86, with the latter earning three in the Demons’ loss to Collingwood.

Max Gawn was awarded maximum votes, while Jordan De Goey was given eight.

There were seven 10-vote games, with Gawn joined by Jack Gunston, Jesse Hogan, Rory Lobb, Shai Bolton, Nick Larkey and Josh Kennedy.
