Brock-Burrum deserve to be hot favourites for the Hume league premiership.
That's the opinion of Henty coach Joel Price, Culcairn star Adam Prior and evergreen Howlong midfielder Matt McDonald after 11 rounds.
The Saints are sitting a win and percentage ahead of Culcairn with the competition pace-setters to clash on July 20.
McDonald said Brock-Burrum was the best side he has seen this season.
"They gave us a bit of a touch up and are pretty even across the board," McDonald said.
"They don't many weaknesses.
"They are pretty good in the midfield with Seiter (Matt) in the ruck and and have plenty of forward options.
"They are pretty dangerous."

While Price said Brock-Burrum's form was impossible to ignore, he warned against writing off second-placed Culcairn.
"I think Brock are the clear top pick at this stage," Price said.
"But if this fella (Prior) can kick a bit straighter in the run home and in the big games I think Culcairn will take some beating too."
Prior rates Brock-Burrum highly but was impressed with Osborne's early form.
He and Henty's Damian Cupido lead the league's goalkicking with 47 majors and Prior doesn't expect much to separate the pair at the end of the season.
"I don't think anyone will kick a 100 this season," he said.
"I'd be happy if I kick my 80-odd."
McDonald, Prior and McDonald believe Culcairn's Jye Shields will take beating for the Azzi medal after a sensational start to the season.
"I think he's taken his game to a new level," McDonald said.
