Glenda Hanlon & Robert Gatter

Versatile tall who was extremely effective in the forward line in the second half of 2018 after kicking the year off as a key defender.

Brown booted 18 goals from the final 11 games of the season in an impressive display of consistency.

The former Cat has become an important link in the chain for the Bombers, constantly pushing up the ground to present for his teammates and drive the ball forward.

The 28-year-old is as honest as they come and will continue to put his hand up for the seniors in 2019.
