AFL: Coleman Medal Contenders

14 rounds of the 2024 AFL season have been played and the battle to win the Coleman Medal is turning out to be a two-way battle.

There is still a lot of footy to be played and goals to be kicked, but as things stand, Charlie Curnow and Ben King are both locked on 38 goals for the season.

Whoever kicks most goals throughout the regular season, is awarded the Coleman Medal at the end of it.

It is no sure thing that either Curnow or King will win the Coleman Medal, as there are number of top quality forwards breathing down their neck.

Let’s take a look at the latest Coleman Medal contenders.

Charlie Curnow

The gun Carlton forward has won the Coleman Medal in each of the last two seasons and is priced at 2.50 to make it three in a row.

Carlton are having a strong season, sitting second on the ladder, and the goals of Curnow are crucial to their chances of going all the way.

The Blues had a bye last week but Curnow was in good touch in the win over Essendon when booting a couple of goals.

Teammate Harry McKay also remains in the hunt for the Coleman Medal with 29 goals for the season.

McKay, another former winner, can be backed at 10.00, to claim his second Coleman Medal.

Ben King

King is having a great season for the Gold Coast Suns, and like Curnow, has kicked 38 goals so far this season.

If King can keep up the good form in front of goal, he can be backed at 4.00 to win the Coleman Medal.

The Suns managed just 48 points in their latest outing, but King was still a threat and booted a couple in the three-point loss to St Kilda.

Gold Coast head to Fremantle this weekend and King will once again be key to their chances.

Jesse Hogan

The goals have dried up in recent weeks for the Greater Western Sydney star, who has 33 goals for the campaign.

GWS are also struggling for results and have slipped down the ladder following a strong start to the season.

Hogan has booted just two goals in the last three rounds, but is still in the mix if he can find his shooting boots once again.

He is priced at 6.50 to win the Coleman Medal.

Jake Waterman

Waterman also has 33 goals for the season despite West Coast Eagles being at the wrong end of the ladder.

The forward booted three goals in the recent win against North Melbourne, but it was not enough to prevent the Eagles from losing the game.

Waterman is sure to be in the thick of the action for the remainder of the season and is 11.00 to win the Coleman Medal.

Joel Amartey

The Sydney youngster has now entered the mix to win the Coleman Medal following a staggering nine-goal haul in round 14.

Amartey was on fire as the Swans beat Adelaide, with all nine of his goals coming in the final two quarters of the game.

It was a performance that Swans legend Lance Franklin would have been proud of and Amartey is now 11.00 to win the Coleman Medal.

Amartey has 31 goals this season and with Sydney flying high at the top of the ladder, the young gun looks sure to get more opportunities.
