The AFL's night of nights belonged to Fremantle's Nat Fyfe, who took out his second Brownlow Medal after registering an impressive 33 votes.

But several Saints also polled well at last night's lavish event, with consistent performances, game-breaking displays and incredible efforts rewarded with votes.

See the full list of the red, white and black's best performers from the 2019 Brownlow Medal count.

Seb Ross – 12 votes

R1 v Gold Coast – 2 votes
R4 v Hawthorn – 3 votes
R13 v Gold Coast – 1 vote
R19 v Melbourne – 3 votes
R21 v Fremantle – 1 vote
R22 v Carlton – 2 votes 

Seb Ross with fiance, Marnie O'Connor.

Seb Ross bookended his consistent campaign with solid performances, seeing him top the Saints in this year’s Brownlow count. 

The dual Trevor Barker Award winner was at the peak of his powers against Hawthorn (39 disposals, six clearances, one goal) and was just as proficient with 31 touches and two goals against the Demons in Round 19. 

Ross pieced together match-winning performances in five of his six outings, leading by example when the game hung in the balance. 

The stand-in skipper was two votes off his career-best year of 2017 (14) – a year where he also took out St Kilda’s best-and-fairest. 

Jack Billings – 11 votes

R2 v Essendon – 3 votes
R3 v Fremantle – 2 votes
R5 v Melbourne – 3 votes
R13 v Gold Coast- 3 votes 

Jack Billings with partner, Sarah Joyce.

Jack Billings jumped out of the blocks early, polling eight votes in the first five rounds to sit equal-second for the Brownlow. 

He only polled in one game from that point on, but his 33 disposals, 11 tackles and two goals against Gold Coast was arguably the best of the lot.

The No. 15 was judged best on ground three times, receiving the maximum votes against the Bombers, Demons and Suns. 

Each game saw an average of 30 disposals, while three of his four outings were complemented with a two-goal bag. 

Rowan Marshall – 7 votes

R4 v Hawthorn – 1 vote
R15 v Richmond – 2 votes
R17 v Geelong – 2 votes
R18 v Western Bulldogs – 2 votes 

Rowan Marshall was superb against the Hawks in the battle for the Blue Ribbon Cup.

A breakout year for Rowan Marshall was capped off with a podium finish in St Kilda’s 2019 Brownlow count.

The emerging ruckman burst onto the scene against Hawthorn in Round 4, with his heavily bandaged nose and inspirational performance (17 disposals, 28 hitouts, seven clearances) cementing his place in the senior side. 

Marshall was equally impressive against Richmond, Geelong and the Western Bulldogs, averaging over 30 hitouts, 12 contested possessions and five clearances in each display.

Runner-up in this year’s Trevor Barker Award, a slew of awards at St Kilda’s night of nights and now a third-place finish in the club’s Brownlow count – Rowan Marshall is well and truly on the up.

Jade Gresham – 5 votes

R2 v Essendon – 2 votes
R10 v Carlton – 3 votes 

Jade Gresham and Olivia Cosma.

A move to the midfield resulted in a superb year for Jade Gresham, who charted in the top-five of St Kilda’s 2019 Brownlow leaderboard. 

Two electric performances against Essendon and Carlton saw the No. 4 add to his solitary Brownlow vote from his debut season. 

Gresham sparked the Saints to life with 29 possessions and six clearances against the Blues, while his game-changing efforts against the Bombers saw the red, white and black begin the year on a high. 

The dynamic Saint didn’t poll towards the back-end of the season, but was strong against Geelong (28 disposals) and Melbourne (32). 

Josh Bruce – 4 votes

R15 v North Melbourne – 2 votes
R19 v Melbourne – 2 votes 

Josh Bruce was consistent up forward for the Saints to come second in the club's goalkicking for the year.

Two big bags saw Josh Bruce round out the Saints’ top-five with a total of four votes. 

The key forward was sublime against North Melbourne with a career-best six goals, while a field day against Melbourne in Round 19 saw him add another four majors to his name. 

Just as strong was his marking, with the No. 27 reeling in seven contested marks against the Roos and four marks inside-50 against the Dees. 

Throughout the season, Bruce bagged multiple goals on 10 occasions, with five of those resulting in three goals or more.
