2022 AFL Brownlow Medal: Round 4 Votes

April 12th 2022, 11:55am, By: Brownlow Bandit

AFL Brownlow Round 4

Round 4 of the AFL season was another tough one for AFL Tipping competitions and also an interesting one for AFL Brownlow betting. The reigning Brownlow medallist and the 2022 Brownlow favourite both left the field with injury and illness, while several other contenders are likely to poll votes. Check out our Round 4 Brownlow vote predictions below!


AFL Brownlow Round 4 Overview

After potentially polling a perfect 9 votes in the first three rounds, Carlton superstar Patrick Cripps did his hammy early against the Suns and limped from the field. Early signs are that it's not as bad as first thought, and he may not miss too many matches. But we all know that a dodgy hammy is hard to shake, and given the injury history of Cripps, he could be a good Brownlow fade at this point.

Reigning Brownlow medallist Ollie Wines also left the field with some heart/breathing issues, which will see him miss some time as well.

Darcy Parish, Jack Steele and Max Gawn are the big name contenders likely to poll Brownlow votes in Round 4 action.



AFL Round 4 Brownlow Votes

Port Adelaide 4.12.36 def by Melbourne 10.8.68

The Power was certainly off in Adelaide on Thursday night as they put in a pretty horrible performance against the Dees. It was the dominance of Max Gawn in the middle that set up the win as the big man amassed 25 disposals, 12 marks, 33 hitouts, 6 clearances and a goal. James Harmes (23 disposals, 7 marks, 2 goals) and James Jordan (27 disposals) were among the Dees’ best. The Power won enough of the ball with Travis Boak (35 disposals, 8 marks) and Riley Bonner (37 disposals, 9 marks) prolific but it didn’t result in goals on the scoreboard.

Max Gawn - 3
James Harmes - 2
James Jordan - 0.5
Travis Boak - 0.5

Geelong 11.14.80 def Brisbane 11.4.70

A fantastic Friday night bout between two heavyweights of the competition saw the Cats emerge with a narrow victory. Tom Hawkins a force up forward with 5 goals from 14 disposals and 7 marks, while Isaac Smith (29 disposals, 10 marks, 1 goal) and Mark Blicavs (22 disposals, 20 hitouts, 7 marks, 8 tackles) were influential up the ground. Daniel McStay tried hard for the Lions with 14 disposals, 11 marks and 3 goals, while Lachie Neale picked up 30 disposals and 11 clearances.

Tom Hawkins - 3
Isaac Smith - 2
Mark Blicavs - 0.5
Daniel McStay - 0.5

Sydney 13.8.86 def North Melbourne 12.3.75

The Roos gave the Swans a massive scare, and probably should’ve won, but ultimately there are no points for honourable losses. Justin McInerney was the catalyst with 30 disposals, including 14 in the final term, as well as 6 marks, 7 clearances and a crucial goal. Callum Mills (28 disposals, 7 marks, 7 clearances) and Isaac Heeney (17 disposals, 11 tackles, 2 goals) were also influential. Jack Ziebell’s switch up forward paid dividends with 5 goals from 9 disposals, while Jy Simpkin was busy in the middle with 33 disposals and a goal.

Justin McInerney - 3
Callum Mills - 2
Isaac Heeney - 0.5
Jack Ziebell - 0.5

Collingwood 10.14.74 def by West Coast 14.3.87

A remarkable away win for the Eagles given their personnel changes, as the Pies will rue letting one slip. The Pies just couldn’t convert up forward with Jeremy McGovern (22 disposals, 8 marks) and Liam Duggan (19 disposals, 10 marks) providing a wall in defence, while Willie Rioli (13 disposals, 3 goals) provided the spark up forward. Nick Daicos (32 disposals, 7 marks, 5 tackles) and Jack Crisp (29 disposals) were very good for the Pies.

Jeremy McGovern - 3
Nick Daicos - 2
Willie Rioli - 1

Richmond 15.9.99 def Western Bulldogs 7.19.61

The Bulldogs won plenty of ball and had enough shots on goal but inaccuracy cost them dearly as the Tigers got a solid win to rekindle their season. Jayden Short (35 disposals, 6 marks, 1 goal), Dion Prestia (30 disposals, 7 marks, 1 goal) and Daniel Rioli (25 disposals, 8 marks) were best for the Tigers. Bailey Smith (36 disposals, 7 marks), Marcus Bontempelli (33 disposals, 8 clearances, 1 goal) and Jack Macrae (34 disposals, 6 tackles, 9 clearances, 1 goal) were typically prolific but it wasn’t enough to get the points for the Dogs.

Jayden Short - 3
Marcus Bontempelli - 1
Bailey Smith - 1
Dion Prestia - 1

Fremantle 13.10.88 def GWS Giants 8.6.54

Fremantle landed a big win against the Giants to move to an impressive 3-1 start to the season. New recruit Will Brodie was the star with 37 disposals, including 20 contested, with 5 tackles and 6 clearances. David Mundy (30 disposals, 6 clearances), Andrew Brayshaw (26 disposals, 6 tackles, 1 goal) and rookie Nathan O’Driscoll (20 disposals, 6 tackles, 2 goals) were also influential. Tim Taranto (32 disposals, 6 clearances) tried hard in a disappointing performance by the Giants.

Will Brodie - 3
David Mundy - 2
Tim Taranto - 1

Essendon 15.13.103 def Adelaide 15.9.99

The Bombers and Crows went the distance before the Dons snuck home with the points. Darcy Parish was best with 38 disposals and 8 clearances, with Andrew McGrath (25 disposals, 7 tackles) providing good support and Peter Wright (10 disposals, 9 marks, 3 goals) creating headaches up forward. Ben Keays (27 disposals, 12 tackles, 1 goal) and Rory Laird (38 disposals, 8 marks, 8 clearances) were busy as ever, while Josh Rachele picked up the Rising Star nomination for his 19 disposals, 9 marks and 3 goals.

Darcy Parish - 3
Andrew McGrath - 2
Josh Rachele - 1

Hawthorn 10.13.73 def by St.Kilda 22.10.142

The Saints whalloped the Hawks and had winners all over the ground. Jack Steele (33 disposals, 10 marks, 1 goal), Jack Sinclair (35 disposals, 6 marks) and Brad Crouch (29 disposals, 7 tackles, 8 clearances) won heaps of the footy, while Jade Gresham (20 disposals, 4 goals), Brad Hill (23 disposals, 9 marks, 4 goals) and Max King (17 disposals, 11 marks, 4 goals) smashed the scoreboard.

Jack Steele - 3
Jade Gresham - 2
Jack Sinclair - 1

Gold Coast 13.14.92 def Carlton 8.14.62

Another tough round for AFL tipping was ruined in the final game with Gold Coast upsetting the previously undefeated Blues. With Brownlow Medal favourite Patrick Cripps going down with a hamstring injury, his teammates were unable to fill the hole. Jarrod Witts (42 hitouts, 16 disposals, 6 clearances) was the dominant ruck and gave first use to his midfield for the likes of Noah Anderson (35 disposals, 10 clearances, 1 goal), Touk Miller (32 disposals, 8 clearances) and Lachie Weller (31 disposals, 8 marks, 1 goal) to run amok. Zac Williams was best for the Blues with 36 disposals and 5 tackles.

Jarrod Witts - 3
Noah Anderson - 2
Lachie Weller - 0.5
Touk Miller - 0.5
