Nat Fyfe: 2015 AFL Brownlow Medal Winner



FREMANTLE star Nat Fyfe has created history by becoming the Dockers' first Brownlow Medallist after holding off fast-finishing reigning winner Matt Priddis.

Fyfe defied injury, history and Match Review Panel concerns during the season to poll 31 votes to become the Dockers' maiden Brownlow Medal winner since they entered the competition in 1995.

The 24-year-old midfielder set up his Brownlow win on Monday night with a barnstorming start to the season, claiming an amazing 26 votes in the first 13 rounds of the season.

It was as many as West Coast star Priddis polled to claim the medal in 2015. In a turnaround from 2015, Priddis was this year's runner-up on 28 votes, falling three votes short of back-to-back medals. 

Fyfe also set a Brownlow record, polling 17 votes in the first eight rounds – surpassing Chris Judd's record from 2010 when he managed 16 votes in the first eight games.

But injury and a drop-off in form in the second half of the season saw Fyfe's fellow medal contenders close the gap.

The raging favourite's last set of votes came in round 17, when he polled two against Richmond, inviting an exciting finish as other Brownlow chances raced home.

But the match-winning midfielder, who was also voted the AFL Players' Association's MVP of 2015, held on and finished with 31 votes to edge out Priddis and third-placed Hawthorn champion Sam Mitchell (26 votes).

It was Mitchell's third top-three finish in the Brownlow.

Although many tipped Fyfe to be the runaway early leader, at the halfway mark of the count there were four clear contenders.

Fyfe led the way with 23 votes after round 12, but nipping at his heels was last year's winner Priddis with 19 votes, Sydney Swan Dan Hannebery had polled 16 and Mitchell had 15 next to his name.

But Fyfe kept at a quick pace, opening a 10-vote lead over Priddis in round 14 and maintaining it for three crucial weeks heading into the back end of the year.

Although Fyfe did not poll in the last six rounds, his Brownlow win was built in nine best-on-ground games, which equalled the record of 1994 winner Greg Williams for the most three-vote matches in a season.

Fyfe's Brownlow triumph also broke convention after the brilliant midfielder missed four games during the home and away season.

The only player to have missed more games in a single season and still taken home the medal is Richmond's Stan Judkins, who missed six games in 1930 but tied with two other players on four votes under a different voting system.

Judkins was awarded the Brownlow after VFL officials met the week after the count and ruled him the winner as he had played fewer games than the two players he tied with.

There wasn't quite the same drama on Monday night at Melbourne's Crown Palladium but it was a tight finish, with Fyfe in attendance at the count after Fremantle's preliminary final loss to Hawthorn last week.

He was hobbling as he walked up to receive his Brownlow, however, having fractured his left fibula in the early stages of the Dockers' defeat to the Hawks on Friday. He will have surgery on it later in the week.

Thankfully for the Dockers and for Fyfe's Brownlow hopes, his injury concerns didn't surface until he had done just enough to seal the competition's best and fairest medal.

In the Dockers' first 13 games of the season – of which they lost just one game – Fyfe averaged 31.5 disposals and kicked 15 goals. He was at his most dynamic, and was unstoppable at the clearances and in the air.

He could not continue at the same rate, and his absence in the final two rounds of the year through injury opened the door for him to be overrun.

But after polling 25 votes and finishing second by one vote (despite being ineligible for being suspended) in last year's Brownlow Medal to winner Matt Priddis, Fyfe turned the tables to clinch the Dockers' first Brownlow win in his sixth AFL season.

Adelaide small forward Eddie Betts won the Goal of the Year for his left-foot barrel from the boundary line in round nine, while West Coast ruckman Nic Naitanui was awarded the Mark of the Year for his round nine screamer.

Carlton speedster Dennis Armfield was the recipient of the Jim Stynes Community Leadership Award for his social work.

The Brave Blossoms of IRB Rugby World Cup 2015



The words tweeted by Japan’s official rugby body were as simple and restrained as the result was astonishing: “We’ve made it.”

Japan – and the rest of the world - was today reeling after pulling off the biggest surprise in the history of the Rugby World Cup by beating two-times winners South Africa.

 And if the cheers among the disbelieving red-and-white faced fans of the so-called “Brave Blossoms” in the stadium at Brighton were deafening as the game came to a close, they were nothing compared to the reactions that immediately erupted on social media.


Twitter flooded with a global torrent of comments, from rugby stars and celebrities, as the shock win was analysed and celebrated in all its glory, many with hashtags including the simple #WOW.

The Japanese embraced the victory in a typically restrained manner, with the result making it onto the home pages of all media websites and some later edition newspapers.

The Asahi Shimbun proclaimed: “Japan writes World Cup history with sensational win against Springboks”, while the Yomiuri wrote: “Japan stuns the world, beats the Springboks”.

Risa Yoshiki, a Japanese model and actress, tweeted: “And Japan won! I was transfixed from beginning to end! I can’t sleep now! Thank you to the Japanese players!”



 Comments on result on the Japan Today website summed up a result that even the most optomsitic Japanese rugby fan would not have predicted.

"Outstanding from Japan", wrote a poster called Akukla. "Loved the guts to go for a win at the end when they could have settled for a draw".

Tamarama added, "I love this kind of drama in sport - brilliant victory! Seeing people in the crowd weeping at the end with pride and happiness was magnificent".

 "Well played Japan", posted KariHaruka. "You played your hearts out till the very end and you absolutely deserved that win!

"Stunning performance Japan; well done", added HedaMadness. "Hopefully it will give the sport the impetus it needs to ensure they host a successful competition in four years."

The shock result was invariably greeted with incredulity in South Africa, where one fan tweeted: “South African made Schoolboy errors and I think it is a dark, dark, dark, day in Springbok history.”



 Describing the win as a “fairy tale” for Japan, Gavin Rich, an expert rugby writer for SuperSport, the South African TV sports company, said: "It will go down as one of the most famous results in any Rugby World Cup and also surely South African rugby's most embarrassing moment in the history of the game.”

Elsewhere around the world, the shock was palpable.

Jonny Wilkinson, Rugby World Cup winner, described how his heart was “racing” following the eleventh hour dramas of the game.

 He added: “Japan met SA physically and stuck to a brilliant tactical plan. They were fit, enthusiastic & executed under pressure thru-out. Deserved it!”

Fellow rugby star Danny Care also tweeted: “Unbelievable spirit and will to win from @JRFURugby what a game!! Congratulations!”

Among the more surprising rugby fans who filled twitter feeds with comments was JK Rowling, who was moved into posting: “You Could not write this … [sic]”

    .@NeilBlairTBP Underdog refuses to take the draw, plays for the win, gets it in the final min... maybe in Quidditch, but real life?!

    Brian McFadden, the Irish singer, summed it up by tweeting: “Someone forgot to send Japan the script. This wasn’t how it was supposed to go!!!!”



Japan, not a nation famed for its rugby heritage, was apparently as surprised as the rest of the world by the unexpected victory of its Brave Blossoms, with its first World Cup win in 24 years.
