Nat Fyfe takes the 2015 Brownlow Medal

NAT Fyfe has erased some of the disappointment of Fremantle's exit from the AFL finals by winning the 2015 Brownlow Medal.

Fyfe claimed the AFL's fairest and best award after a dominant season for the Dockers, illustrated by the fact he polled 26 of a possible 30 votes between rounds four and 14.

He eventually collected 31 votes, with West Coast's 2014 Brownlow Medal winner Matt Priddis runner-up with 28.

The 24-year-old Fyfe is the first player to be judged best-afield by the umpires nine times during a season.

He roared to a tally of 29 votes from his first 13 matches, more votes than any other player received all night.
