PREMIER B LIVE BLOG OF THE MOORE MEDAL

Posted on - Latest News

Congratulations to Old Trinity’s captain Brendan Iezzi, he claims his second Moore Medal four years after his first. Iezzi has now won three VAFA Best and Fairest Medals including his Woodrow Medal in 2011. Iezzi’s total of 33 votes is close to a record (we think and are checking!) it is the 5th time a player from Old Trinity has won the Moore. 
Old Melburnians skipper Tom Paule finished runner up on 24 votes a total that would have won him the medal last year
Fitzroy’s captain Rory Angiolella finished third on 19 votes. 
AJAX had 3 players inside the top 7 (Poyas, Ludski & Routman) but no one could come close to Brendan Ieezi who polled well in the final rounds to lead the count from Round 12 to Round 18.

What a way to finish for Iezzi who claims the 3 votes in the final round to extend his winning margin to 9 votes!

After Round 17
A two vote game from Iezzi and nothing from Paule means Iezzi can’t lose from here! Angiolella get three votes to take him three votes clear in third. No other votes for our top 10.

After Round 14
Perret gets another 2 votes and Iezzi and Paule fail to poll, could this be where Perrett makes his move? Rory Angiolella of Fitzroy has polled 4 votes in the past two rounds to move to outright 4th.

After Round 13
The #iezzistreak is over as OM’s beat Old Trinity. On the plus side the count is still alive as Tom Paule picks up 2 votes. Perrett also picks up 2 votes but surely he is too far back on 12 votes?

After Round 11
Another three for Iezzi and he is on a bit of a hot streak. #iezzistreak Paule and Poyas both fail to poll. Ridgeway gets 2 votes for Old Haileybury to take him to double figures and a tie for 4th.

Jon Perrett of Old Brighton is a further 5 votes back on 10. Will the winner will come from these three? Or has someone got a late season charge in them.
