Rance on The Front Bar Alex Rance appears on The Front Bar ahead of Richmond's Round 13 match against Geelong.

Alex Rance seems set to join an exclusive group of AFL players later this year.

The outstanding Richmond key defender is on track for a fifth consecutive All-Australian blazer, which would place him alongside Geelong champion Gary Ablett junior and Collingwood’s captain Scott Pendlebury as the only current-day league players to achieve such a feat.

Ablett gained All-Australian selection eight years in-a-row, from 2007-2014 (2007-10 with the Cats and 2011-14 at the Gold Coast Suns).

Pendlebury was an All Australian five years on-the-trot, from 2010-2014.

The likes of Geelong pair Joel Selwood and Patrick Dangerfield, Sydney’s Lance Franklin are the only other current AFL players that have been named in more All-Australian teams than Rance, but not in successive years.

Selwood is a six-time All Australian (2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017), Dangerfield a five-time All Australian (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017) and Franklin a seven-time All Australian (2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017).

Up to the Tigers’ mid-season bye this year, Rance averages 17.2 disposals, 6.7 marks and 4.4 rebound-50s per match.

He is ranked No. 1 in the competition for intercepts, No. 4 for one-percenters, No. 9 for marks and No. 11 for contested marks.
