Jarryn Geary secures second consecutive podium finish

October 6, 2017 11:21 PM

St Kilda Captain Jarryn Geary has secured his second consecutive podium finish in the Trevor Barker Award.

After finishing narrowly behind Jack Steven in last year’s vote count, the 29-year-old capped a consistent season with third place behind Seb Ross and Dylan Roberton.

In a year where he took over the leadership reins from the club’s longest serving skipper, Nick Riewoldt, Geary continued to strengthen his status as one of the competition’s premier small defenders.

He polled in all but two games in 2017, with one of those matches coming in Round 23 when he was injured very early in the opening term against the Demons.

With Riewoldt, Leigh Montagna and Sean Dempster all departing the club this year, Geary is a key driver behind St Kilda’s pursuit of a return to September.

Where he polled his votes:

Round 4 v Collingwood (15 votes) – 17 disposals, nine spoils, seven marks and five tackles

Rd 13 v North Melbourne (10 votes) – 21 disposals, eight contested possessions and three spoils

Rd 16 v Richmond (10 votes) – 18 disposals, seven marks, six contested possessions and four spoils

Rd 19 v Port Adelaide (nine votes) – 12 disposals, six contested possessions and six spoils
