Continued his career-best stretch by going one better than his 2018 season, finishing as the runner-up in the 2019 John Nicholls Medal. Starting last year as a half forward, Curnow showed his adaptability in the unlikely role, kicking four goals against Sydney. A return to familiar territory saw him shine in the second half of the 2019 season, performing lockdown roles on the opposition’s best midfielder while also hunting the ball himself. Averaging 28 disposals from his last nine games, the running machine seems to be getting better with age.
