THE Peninsula and Nepean Teams of the Year will be announced at MPNFL presentation dinners over the next couple of weeks.
Coaches were asked to provide ‘their’ team of the year, based on the matches they had seen in season 2015.
Media commentators Brent Clinnick and yours truly, Toe Punt, also put together a team based on the enormous amount of footy we have seen this season.
In Peninsula, there were a total of 66 players nominated in the squad.
In Nepean, there were 60 players nominated.
It was then my responsibility to put the teams together. This was done based on the number of ‘votes’ that players received from coaches. Players with the most number of votes automatically made the team.
Where there were players with an equal number of votes, I looked at whether their own coach nominated them. This was used mainly for the interchange players, as the large majority of the starting 18 in both teams picked themselves, based on the number of votes they received.
As always, the selected team is sure to raise plenty of discussion.
