AFL 2017 Round 12 - Hawthorn v Gold Coast

Jack Martin and Peter Wright have been named in the AFL Players’ Association 22under22 team.

The final side was voted by fans after an initial 40-player squad was selected by the AFLPA Board.

It was Martin's second consecutive selection in the side and follows his third place finish in Gold Coast's Club Champion award earlier this month.

The utility's poise and decision-making was on show throughout a season that saw him average a career-best 18.6 disposals and 6.3 marks per game.

Wright was named as the starting ruckmen, highlighting his ability to play a dual role.

The 203-cm forward continued his upward trajectory, kicking a career-best 31 goals and finishing second in the SUNS' goalkicking.

Gold Coast were one of five teams with two representatives in the 22under22 team.

Western Bulldogs star Marcus Bontempelli was named captain, with Essendon's Zach Merrett his vice-captain.

To be eligible for selection, players must be aged 22 years and under for the entire season.

Now in its fifth year, 22under22 is the AFL’s only recognised fan-voted award which provides the footy public with the power to select the final 22.
