Docker Sturt in box seat for Rising Star

The AFL called a halt to the season after round one, and will not re-start the campaign until May 31 at the earliest due to the coronavirus pandemic.

If the AFL is unable to resume competition this year, it would give the league a unique dilemma of whether to award Sturt the Rising Star award in a season that consisted of just one game.

Sturt suffered multiple concussions, keeping him on the sidelines for much of 2019, but his debut performance against Essendon showed he is a star of the future.
