The 2020 Norm Smith Medal is presented to the best player on the ground in the AFL Grand Final. Who will take the honour when Richmond Tigers and Geelong Cats clash?

Generally, this award is handed to the best player of the winning team, but has been awarded to the opposition before, infamously to Nathan Buckley in 2002 when he pocketed the medal instead of wearing it around his neck.

The medal is handed out even if the match is drawn, as seen in the 2010 Grand Final where Lenny Hayes took out the honour before losing the Final rematch the next week.

2020 Norm Smith Medal Tips

Patrick Dangerfield

Danger has always stated that the one thing he wants to top off his career filled with accolades, is to win the Premiership, and if his side were to do so, it is hard to think he would not have a major influence over this.

He has been a dominant force over the finals series. Although beaten by Port Adelaide in the first final, he stood tall and was the only player that looked as if he wanted to win, even when down by three goals with one minute remaining.

He backed up that performance against Collingwood the next week with a best on ground performance, kicking four goals including two checksides from the forward pocket.

He will do everything in his power to get his side across the line, and it just looks a sense of timing for the great man.

Dustin Martin

Dusty will go down as the best big time player of all time (if he is not already) if he were to win a third premiership and as many Norm Smiths in four years.

He is deadly up forward in a one-on-one match-up, were his brut strength wins him so many contests.

He stands out in front of the umpires as well, kicking goals, big celebrations, big fend offs and the aroma around him just shows why is already a two time Norm Smith and premiership winner, as well as a Brownlow medalist.

If Richmond win the flag, you are looking a massive chance to collect of this man.

Gary Ablett

Arguably the greatest AFL footballer ever, the 'Little Master' will play his final match in a Grand Final for the side he has served for so long.

He turned the game for the Cats in last week's preliminary final against the Lions, kicking two clutch goals in a dominant performance that saw him the best player on the ground.

Although the two-time Brownlow medalist is not the player he once was, he still kicks big goals on big moments and stands out when he does.

He could be ready for a big match, and be sent off in the style that he deserves, as a premiership player and a Norm Smith Medalist.
