The Essendon vice-captain didn’t miss a beat in 2021 after returning to the club’s leadership group, playing every game and winning his third Crichton Medal, ahead of Darcy Parish. Found his groove again to become one of the Bombers’ most important players and earn All-Australian selection, averaging an impressive 31 touches a game. Merrett is just the player Ben Rutten can build his midfield around, so his importance to the side can’t be understated.
