Last year’s Coleman Medal race saw just five goals separate the top three players, with Charlie Curnow ending victorious having booted 64 for the year. With one round to go in season 2023, both he and Taylor Walker have well and truly surpassed that, while Nick Larkey will likely do so in the final round if he plays and Toby Greene, Jeremy Cameron and a couple of others won’t be too far behind. But with the season nearing an end, the Coleman Medal is Charlie Curnow’s to lose, and Walker is the only man who can realistically catch him. With that in mind, let’s take a look at how the race is shaping up with one round to go, and if it’s possible for Tex Walker to chase him down at long odds.
