Hard-Prest: Midfielder takes out Tigers best and fairest

In his third season at Punt Road after being traded from Gold Coast, Prestia shrugged off injury concerns of previous seasons by playing every game in 2019.

He averaged more than 27 disposals per game and was extremely consistent, never dropping below 17 touches.

Prestia, who turns 27 later this month, led the Tigers for disposals, contested possessions, tackles and clearances.

He was second in the Suns’ best and fairest in 2013 and third the following year.

In his 13th season at the club, Edwards – an All-Australian last year – managed his best finish in the count.


Edwards averaged just under 22 disposals per game, missing just one match for the season.

Defender Grimes’ finish was also a career-best, capping off an outstanding year in which he earned All-Australian selection for the first time.

Despite winning the Gary Ayres Award for the AFL Coaches’ Association’s player of the finals, Dustin Martin could only manage sixth in the best and fairest.

Kane Lambert, Bachar Houli and David Astbury were seventh, eighth and ninth respectively, while Jason Castagna and Daniel Rioli tied for 10th.
