2024 AFL Brownlow Medal Round 6 Votes

April 23rd 2024, 4:03pm, By: Brownlow Bandit

The AFL season continues to be a nightmare for tipsters, while it's also proving a nightmare for North Melbourne fans after the Roos became the only team without a win after Round 6 of action. It looks like being a long season for the men from Arden Street.

At the other end of the ladder, the Cats are the only undefeated team after they got past the Lions in the slop at the Gabba. It bodes well for a mouth-watering clash between the Cats and Blues next week!

As usual, we’ll share our thoughts from every match of the AFL season, along with our Brownlow vote predictions and projections using our own system which has a proven profitable history over many years. For full details on how it works, see the section at the bottom of the page. We hope you'll use our free Brownlow tips to help you find value during the season and built a green book before the big night.

For links to every round of the season and full count, head to our 2024 Brownlow Medal Leaderboard page (coming soon).

2024 AFL Brownlow Round 6 Overview

Isaac Heeney continues to lead our 2024 Brownlow Medal count after the Swans superstar polled votes once again in Round 6. Hot on his heels is 2022 Brownlow Medallist Patrick Cripps who was superb in Carlton's win over the Giants. Zach Merrett, Jordan Dawson, Nick Daicos, Sam Walsh and Errol Gulden are other potential contenders who might be polling votes in Round 6.

Check out our 2024 Round 6 Brownlow votes below and our updated 2024 Brownlow leaderboard here!


2024 AFL Brownlow Votes - Round 6 Match Analysis

St Kilda 9.10.64 def by Western Bulldogs 19.10.124

The round kicked off with a mouth-watering clash between two teams on the fringe of the top eight, but it would be the Dogs who decimated the Saints. Aaron Naughton helped the Dogs get off to a flyer with 6 goals from 11 disposals and 6 marks to quieten the doubters early. Bailey Dale (39 disposals, 15 marks, 1 goal) and Jason Johannisen (31 disposals, 12 marks) controlled things at half-back, while Adam Treloar (30 disposals, 7 tackles, 9 clearances, 1 goal), Jack Macrae (30 disposals, 7 tackles, 1 goal) and Marcus Bontempelli (24 disposals, 6 tackles, 3 goals) dominated the midfield. Marcus Windhager (29 disposals, 7 tackles) and Brad Hill (31 disposals) were the only good contributors for the Saints.

Bailey Dale - 3
Aaron Naughton - 2
Adam Treloar - 1


Adelaide 11.9.75 def by Essendon 10.18.78

A controversial finish saw Essendon hold on for a dramatic win over the Crows. The Bombers had plenty of valuable contributors with Zach Merrett (28 disposals, 7 clearances, 1 goal), Jye Caldwell (26 disposals, 10 tackles, 6 clearances), Sam Durham (22 disposals, 9 tackles) and Jade Gresham (26 disposals, 6 clearances, 1 goal) all excellent. Best on ground might actually go to Crows skipper Jordan Dawson who was immense with 31 disposals, 9 tackles and 2 goals, while Jake Soligo (31 disposals, 10 clearances, 1 goal) is also a chance for votes.

Jordan Dawson - 3
Zach Merrett - 2
Jye Caldwell - 0.5
Jake Soligo - 0.5


Collingwood 17.21.123 def Port Adelaide 12.9.81

In a battle of the heavyweights, Collingwood came back from an early 31-point deficit to run all over the top of Port Adelaide. Will Hoskin-Elliott was a surprising catalyst for the comeback with 21 disposals, including 11 score involvements, 9 marks and 2 goals. Jordan De Goey (27 disposals, 7 tackles) was tireless for four quarters, while Nick Daicos flashed late with 30 disposals and 8 clearances. Patrick Lipinski is also worth a mention for his 4 goals from 16 disposals. Zak Butters (31 disposals, 1 goal) was amazing in the first quarter but then went missing, while Dan Houston (28 disposals, 7 tackles) and Jason Horne-Francis (24 disposals, 1 goal) were best for the Power.

Will Hoskin-Elliott - 3
Jordan De Goey - 2
Zak Butters - 0.5
Nick Daicos - 0.5


Carlton 17.15.117 def GWS Giants 15.8.98

The Giants suffered their first loss of the season as the Blues were too strong at Marvel. Patrick Cripps was phenomenal and will be an easy three Brownlow votes here for his 39 disposals, 7 tackles and 13 clearances. Sam Walsh (35 disposals, 6 clearances) and George Hewett (31 disposals, 6 clearances) also won plenty of ball, while Tom De Koning (15 disposals, 16 hitouts, 3 goals) was valuable. Josh Kelly (23 disposals, 6 marks, 6 clearances, 3 goals) was best for the Giants. Brownlow votes look pretty clear cut in this one.

Patrick Cripps - 3
Sam Walsh - 2
Josh Kelly - 1


Brisbane 4.13.37 def by Geelong 9.9.63

Geelong adapted best to the torrential conditions in Brisbane to leave the Lions winless at home for season 2024. Max Holmes (24 disposals), Mitch Duncan (24 disposals), Zac Guthrie (21 disposals), Gryan Miers (20 disposals, 1 goal) and Tyson Stengle (17 disposals, 2 goals) were best for the Cats. Dayne Zorko (26 disposals, 8 marks, 6 tackles, 2 goals) was the stand out for the Lions, with Jarrod Berry (29 disposals, 1 goal) also useful. Tricky game for Brownlow votes.

Max Holmes - 3
Tyson Stengle - 1.5
Dayne Zorko - 1.5


West Coast 16.9.105 def Fremantle 10.8.68

Huge upset from the Eagles as they knocked off the Dockers in the Derby. Elliot Yeo won the Medal for his 26 disposals, 6 clearances and 1 goal, while Jake Waterman (5 goals, 11 disposals, 8 marks) and Harley Reid (19 disposals, 7 clearances, 3 goals) were the other vote getters. It’s hard to see the votes going outside of those three, but Tim Kelly (24 disposals, 7 tackles) and Tom Barrass (15 disposals, 11 marks) were also very good. Nat Fyfe tried hard for the Dockers with 27 disposals and 13 clearances.

Elliot Yeo - 3
Harley Reid - 2
Jake Waterman - 1


Sydney 17.8.110 def Gold Coast 8.9.57

The Swans kicked clear in the second half to run away from the Suns with Brodie Grundy leading the way with 24 disposals, 11 tackles, 29 hitouts, 6 clearances and a goal in a huge game. Brownlow leader Isaac Heeney (28 disposals, 1 goal) is likely in the votes once again, while Errol Gulden (30 disposals) also racked up plenty of touches. Sam Flanders (34 disposals, 8 marks) patrolled half-back to be the Suns best.

Brodie Grundy - 3
Isaac Heeney - 1
Errol Gulden - 1
Sam Flanders - 1


North Melbourne 10.8.68 def by Hawthorn 17.11.113

The Hawks thumped the Roos to leave them winless and on the bottom of the ladder after Round 6. Jai Newcombe (32 disposals, 6 tackles, 9 clearances) and Conor Nash (32 disposals, 8 tackles, 10 clearances) were back to their best in the middle, Harry Morrison (26 disposals, 7 marks, 1 goal) was good in his return to the side, while Dylan Moore (20 disposals, 4 goals) hit the scoreboard. Tristan Xerri (18 disposals, 10 tackles, 44 hitouts, 10 clearances) tried hard for the Roos.

Jai Newcombe - 3
Dylan Moore - 2
Conor Nash - 1



For those who need a refresher on how our Brownlow vote predictor system works, we assign 6 votes per game so that our total votes are the same as the official 3-2-1 system, however we break up those votes as we see fit across potentially more than three players. Some games are really tough to call which way the votes will go, so a better predictive model is to split performances and assign half points to each player where there is doubt. So for example if two players dominate and it's too hard to split their performance, they are given 2.5 votes each, with the remaining 1 vote given to another player(s). This will give us a predictive total closer to their true total, rather than guessing. We can then form a 'range' for each player (i.e. a min and max we think players can poll) with the thinking behind this that the variations from the half votes will even out over the long term.
