World News – AU – Adams claims Copeland as Pendlebury ranks 12 in top three


The uncompromising midfielder won his first place in the All-Australian squad earlier this year and was named the recipient of the Copeland 2020 Trophy on Tuesday

It followed a campaign in which Adams, 27, played in every game, averaging 227 eliminations per game

He led Collingwood for assignments, 1950s tackles and clearances Adams, who was traded from Greater Western Sydney for Heath Shaw in late 2013, was a Magpies finalist three years ago Adams also won this year’s Gavin Brown Award for lobbying

Adams was a runaway Copeland winner with 100 votes, 29 ahead of Pies captain Scott Pendlebury Even at 32, Pendlebury remains a marvel His second place earned him 10 top-two in the prize and 12 in the first three

Dashing defenseman Jack Crisp repeated his third place finish in 2019, where he was also ranked in 2015 Crisp has played 141 consecutive AFL-top games for the Magpies since his trade with the Brisbane Lions at the end of 2014

Having been named All-Australian for the first time, key defender Darcy Moore finished fourth, while compatriot Brayden Maynard completed the top five

Much improved Josh Daicos finished sixth, ahead of Jamie Elliott and Brodie Grundy who finished seventh with 47 votes For Grundy, it summed up a year he struggled to reach great heights after signing a seven-year contract extension.

Out-of-contract forward Brody Mihocek finished tied for ninth while winning the Bob Rose award as a player of the club final

The diminutive John Noble provided excellent publicity for the mid-season rookie draft, tying Mihocek not even having been on an AFL roster until the South Australian Magpies were resumed in the middle of last year

Second-year defender Isaac Quaynor’s strong season saw him named the club’s best young player. Injured backman Jeremy Howe was selected as top clubman while Nathan Murphy took home the VFL’s best player award , despite the fact that the VFL was not organized this year
