Acheeky eight-year-old girl stole the show at the Brownlow Medal count as she asked the AFL's best players hard-hitting questions. 

Isla Roscrow, the 2018 NAB AFL Auskicker of the year, took to the red carpet as she became acquainted with some of the game's stars on Monday night. 

Her first victim was Hawthorn champion Jarryd Roughead, who retired this year after multiple stints with cancer, but Isla didn't hold back.

'Why do you think you got invited to the Brownlow?' the smiling eight-year-old asked.

'I think it's my last year as a Hawks player so I think they felt sorry for me that I was never going to come again,' Roughead replied. 

She then asked Bulldogs player Caleb Daniel, who wears a headgear on game day, if he could lend his helmet to Geelong hard nut Joel Selwood, because 'he keeps bashing his head'. 

When Isla saw Selwood, she ran to him as he picked her up and hugged her. 

'How's your head?' she asked the 31-year-old Cats captain as he put her down. 

'Good. How's it look?' he asked her. 

'Bad,' Isla bluntly responded as she went to hug Selwood's fiance Brit Davis.

The energetic commentator made her mum's wish come true after speaking with  Bulldogs star Marcus Bontempelli.

'My mother over there loves you,' Isla said as she pointed. 'Can you please wave at her?'

Bontempelli walked over to Mrs Roscrow and hugged her, leaving her visibly shocked. 

'Oh my goodness,' she could be heard saying.

'Your dream just came true mum,' Isla told her.

She asked other players if they had a chance of winning the Brownlow Medal to which they all responded 'not a chance'.

But Carlton player Patrick Cripps said: 'I’m going to win it for sure', before clarifying he was joking.

Isla's commentary was welcomed on Twitter, with hundreds taking to the platform to commend her on her 'phenomenal' job. 

'Love that the players have all the time in the world for Isla. More than a game,' one wrote.

'Isla has been contracted to host next year's #BrownlowMedal,' another commented. 

'Isla just won the Brownlow early,' another wrote.    

Nat Fyfe took home his second Brownlow Medal as the AFL's best and fairest player.

The Fremantle superstar, who also took home the prestigious award in 2015, received 33 votes and beat strongly fancied favourite Patrick Dangerfield, who finished on 27.
