LIVE BLOG PREMIER B MEDAL COUNT

Posted on - Latest News

Premier B Live Blog for the GT MOOREMEDAL:
Congratulations to Charlie Richardson from University Blacks who wins the Premier B Moore Medal in 2012. Richardson polled maximum votes in the final game to take his tally to 20 votes and win by one vote from Tom Paule of Old Melburnians who was ineligible on 19 votes. Richardson’s teammate Andrew Willingham was third and might rue being rested in the final game, but will be satisfied if he can win a Premiership in the next few weeks. 
Richardson polled in 8 matches whilst Paule and Willingham polled in seven matches. James Marchesani from St Kevins also polled in 8 matches but only finished with 14 votes. 
Here are the top 29 vote getters:
20 Charlie Richardson University Blacks    
19 Thomas Paule* Old Melburnians    
18 Andrew Willingham University Blacks    
14 Daniel Costello University Blacks    
14 James Marchesani St Kevins    
13 Evgeni Routman AJAX    
13 Patrick Dowd St Kevins    
13 Leigh Hendra Old Brighton    
12 Luke McNicholas Beaumaris    
12 Ben Dowd St Kevins    
11 Callan Buckley Beaumaris    
11 Thomas Dean Beaumaris    
10 James Davis Old Brighton    
9 Daniel Anthony Old Brighton    
8 Mitchell Chadwick* Werribee Districts    
8 Lachlan Boyd Beaumaris    
8 Nick Gieschen Old Ivanhoe    
8 Jeremy Beaumont Old Melburnians    
8 Jon Perrett Old Brighton    
7 Anthony Lynch St Kevins    
7 Hamish McLauchlan Old Haileybury    
7 Jake Lew AJAX    
7 Philip Edgar St Kevins    
7 Edward De Fegely Old Melburnians  
Round 17: After six rounds we have a new leader! Willingham picks up his third three vote game in a row to move to 18 votes passing teammate Charlie Richardson who is stagnate on 17 votes. Only those two can win it as Tom Paule who is third on 16 votes is ineligible due to suspension. Remember Willingham did not play in Round 18 so he needs Richardson to have a quiet game. 
18 Andrew Willingham University Blacks    
17 Charlie Richardson University Blacks    
16 Thomas Paule* Old Melburnians    
14 Daniel Costello University Blacks

13 Patrick Dowd St Kevins    
13 Leigh Hendra Old Brighton    
12 Ben Dowd St Kevins    
11 Luke McNicholas Beaumaris  
Round 16: Hello, hello, what do we have here, a late charge for the medal? A second BOG performance in a row has Uni Blacks star recruit Andrew Willingham up to 15 votes, just two off the pace. And Tom Paule – who we should add is ineligible – also collects three votes for Old Melburnians. He is now second to Richardson. Let’s hope we don’t have a Chris Grant/Corey McKernan situation on our hands.
