Pup top pick for Mathieson

LEOPOLD ball magnet Marcus Thompson and star Colac midfielder Jonathan Simpkin are tipped by GFL coaches to battle it out for the Mathieson Medal on Wednesday night.

Former Geelong VFL listed Thompson has the backing of four coaches, while former Geelong, Hawthorn and Essendon player Simpkin has attracted the support of three.

Thompson’s Lions teammate Trent West has received the nod from two coaches, with St Joseph’s Riley Ferguson, St Mary’s Jarrod Garner, and South Barwon’s Louis Herbert all considered a chance by one coach.
