East Fremantle Football Club's Rory O'Brien has won the Sandover Medal. Rory was awarded the Medal at last night's vote count, after amassing 55 votes throughout the season, 12 more than his closest rival, East Perth's Paul Johnson (43). In third place was Jake Murphy of Claremont (41 votes), with EFFC's Captain Mark McGough in 4th on 36 votes.

Rory gathered more than 30 possessions on 11 occasions this season to lead the league in disposals with a total of 622 and went into the Sandover Medal count among the favourites.
