SAM POWELL-PEPPER has been voted by the fans as the MG MVP for his performance against the Blues, topping the votes for the second time this season.
The big-bodied midfielder/forward recorded 16 disposals and 8 contested possessions, topped off by two goals in the three-point loss to Carlton.
Additionally, his efforts further solidified his reputation as a player that brings the energy when it’s most needed.
Powell-Pepper’s first major, a long around-the-body snap, kickstarted a late third-quarter surge – the momentum of which carried on into the final term – and nearly helped Port record an upset comeback at the MCG.
His Round 5 performance shoots him to outright second place on the Fans MG MVP leader board.
Ryan Burton finished runner-up in the fans vote after notching 29 disposals, seven intercept possessions and two goals in his milestone game.
Rounding out the votes this week was Zak Butters (3rd), Travis Boak (4th) and Connor Rozee (5th).
