2019: An unsung hero for North during his career, Cunnington’s superb performances in the midfield finally received external recognition in 2019. Playing in every game, Cunnington recorded career-bests in disposals, clearances and contested possessions. The number 10 had 8 games of 30+ touches, and put in some truly memorable performances, such as his 37-disposal demolition of Collingwood in Round 15. Cunnington played his 200th game in Round 16. The midfielder earned his first inclusion in the 40-man Virgin Australian All-Australian Squad.
