Brisbane star Lachie Neale closed the gap on Patrick Cripps atop the AFLCA Champion Player of the Year award, polling a perfect 10 votes against Adelaide.

Neale starred with maximum votes in the Lions' 36-point win over Adelaide on Saturday night.

The 2020 Brownlow medallist moved to within four of Cripps (53), with Clayton Oliver (51), who polled four votes in Melbourne's thrashing of West Coast, in second.


A pair of ruckmen, Richmond's Toby Nankervis and St Kilda's Paddy Ryder, joined Port Adelaide star Ollie Wines, Sydney midfielder Callum Mills, Carlton gun Sam Walsh and Neale with 10-vote games in round nine.
