Brayden Mann must surely be one of the favourites to win the inaugural Mitsubishi Motors Best-and-Fairest Player Award for the 2013 Victory League.

The Devonport City hit man struck 26 goals in 20 matches to be the league’s leading marksman and goals are often as good as votes when it is the referees who award votes on a 3-2-1 basis in each match.
