Celebrity arrivals at the AFL Brownlow Medal ceremony 

AFL WAGS go for glamour despite a ‘virtual’ Brownlow Medal – as red-hot favourite Lachie Neale and wife Julie Neale lead the celebrity arrivals

The AFL Brownlow Medal is very different this year thanks to COVID-19, with no main ceremony as players and their partners gather at dinners being held remotely around the country.  

Players and partners gathered at a variety of venues: the Seven studio in Melbourne, the Brisbane Lions at their Gabba home, Richmond and Geelong players in separate function rooms at Gold Coast’s Metricon Stadium ahead of their upcoming grand final next weekend, SA based players at the Adelaide Oval and WA based players at Optus Stadium in Perth. 

Despite the absence of a red carpet, the WAGS still grasped the chance to indulge in some glamour after months of few social opportunities due to lockdown. 

The red-hot favourite to win in 2020 is Brisbane Lions star Lachie Neale, and he and his wife Julie Neale made a glamorous entrance.
