The Bonnett-Cook Leading Goal Kicker Award

AFL announce 'top up' lists

From The Age website:

Collingwood have listed former Melbourne star defender and new development coach Neville Jetta as one of the club’s top-ups under the AFL’s COVID-19 contingency plan.

Jetta is one of a number of well-known ex-AFL names who have been placed on standby by clubs. Essendon have Shaun McKernan – the ex-Bomber who was on St Kilda’s list – on their list of 20 top-ups, while distinguished ex-Bomber David Zaharakis, a best and fairest at Essendon, is a top-up for 2021 premiers Melbourne.

Wondering if anyone has further insight into this.....the Dolphins were scheduled to play a night game this coming weekend against Frankston Bombers......would have been very interesting to see one of the MPNFL's better sides taking on the VFL team (and with the Bombers having a number of ex-Dolphins on their list), but it seems the VFL have scuttled the idea due to some crap about exposure to covid by playing a team outside of the league. Surely not?
