Average Age of Players Played in 2017 after Round 18
Hawthorn and West Coast both had the two oldest lists across the competition, and it shows once again, as this time we’ve complied the average age of players every club has used in 2017.

The league average in 2017 is 24.8, although the Eagles stand alone as the league’s oldest team, averaging a side almost one year older than the next highest side.

Essendon have put out a side in 2017 with an average age of 25.8, while the Hawks haven’t strayed too far from the pre-season numbers with an average of 25.7.

When it comes to the average age of your club, it’s always the age of the teams that are at the bottom that are the most interesting, and this time around it’s no exception.

While Brisbane, Gold Coast, North Melbourne and Carlton are all naturally down the bottom given they’re all rebuilding in 2017, two Victorian clubs and their fans would be pretty happy with their positions.

Only two clubs in the competition are younger than Melbourne and Richmond, who both have an average age of 24.4.

With the Tigers currently a game clear inside the top four and the Demons hitting their straps and just a game away from Richmond, both sets of fans would be excited with what the future holds for these young teams.

The Tigers are also the only side in the competition not to have played a player over the age of 30 so far this season.

A nice article to pass on to Carlton supports telling you how young the sides they are fielding are.
