Nat Fyfe joins the greats with second Brownlow Medal

Nat Fyfe 2019 Brownlow Medal

TLA’s Nat Fyfe has become just the 15th VFL/AFL player to have won multiple Brownlow Medals after being crowned the AFL’s Best & Fairest player in 2019.

Fyfe’s runaway victory capped off an incredible season for the Fremantle skipper, polling 33 votes, six more than second-placed Patrick Dangerfield on 27 and fellow TLA footballers Lachie Neale and Patrick Cripps on 26.

Fyfe, Fremantle’s first and only Brownlow medallist, added to his 2015 medal with a season that saw him poll votes in 13 matches and judged best afield in nine of those.

Earlier in the night, GIANTS’ Stephen Coniglio was honoured with the Jim Stynes Community Leadership Award.

The AFL’s 2019 “Night of Nights” was also the first time that TLA’s Hamish McLachlan hosted the coverage for Channel 7, taking the reins from the great Bruce McAvaney for the much-coveted MC role.
