Impressed with his performance. Looked comfortable out there which is a key to seeing if kids will make it in the long run. His take from the ruck to waltz into the goals was great stuff.

Have they announced the winner of this weeks Rising Star nomination yet? Isn’t it usually done by now?

Chol meets the maximum game requirement but 12 months too old so not eligible to be nominated.

Well I think he's eligible. I googled the eligibility and it did say 21 @ 1 January
He turned 22 in late January I believe.
Mind you if shiffter sheen can find a loophole to not make him eligible for a nom.... it will be found!

Shifter Sheehan the same bloke that said Pettifier was leadership quality and that Griffens was a power forward.
After those comments i dont take anything he says seriously.

Yes you're right, my mistake, the eligibility does say 21 or under at 1 January. I was looking on footywire ; https://www.footywire.com/afl/footy/ty-richmond-tigers?year=2019# and it seems they have forgotten to add Chol to the 2019 eligible list although he was listed for 2018. Although nothing would surprise me with loopholes and the AFL and if footywire have forgotten maybe the AFL has too or perhaps they are waiting for a 'body of work' to show consistency!!!!.

Just thinking about that...... is it because he was initially rookie listed this year, or maybe I'm wrong again? How would ya know?

Can someone from the club advise if Chol is eligible and whether the AFL acknowledge that fact. I for one don’t understand how (if he is elligible) he could not have received this weeks nomination, after getting 5 coaches votes and question whether that has ever occurred before?

To be eligible for the AFL Rising Star Award, each year's nominated players must be under the age of 21 at 1 January and have played no more than 10 AFL games to the start of that season.
They must not have been suspended by the AFL or State League tribunals during the season (as with the Brownlow Medal, players found guilty of certain offences and fined or reprimanded by the Tribunal remain eligible to win the award).

As Mabior was 21 on January 1 2019 I'm assuming he's not eligible.

Good opposition to be going up against to continue to cement his spot, the next few weeks are going to be a huge test for him, if he now believes and is prepared to keep working hard he may just make the grade

I don't think they vote on merit for just one game. Often to me it seems they look at accumulation of good games before winning a nomination. Exception would be early in the season. There are a lot of good young players who don't get a nomination despite having some ripper games. I think it'd be a little unfair for Chol to be chosen this week.

That sounds logical. Cholly to old for rising star.
I'll be happy if he keeps playing well n earns himself a contract extension. Kids got talent, all he needs to do is keep himself focused within the game.
