The fans have spoken and as voted by you, Zak Butters is the Round 10 Fans MG MVP.
Butters had a stand out game in Monday night’s win against the Western Bulldogs, providing a much-needed spark for the Power when the game was up for grabs in the third quarter.
The 19-year old was lively across the ground, collecting 24 disposals, three clearances and six marks. Just as impressive was his pressure and desperation to create goals, finishing with six score involvements and four tackles for the night.
This is the third time Butters has claimed the top honours in the fans’ vote this season, moving up to second place in the overall leader board.
Coming in second in the voting on the night was key forward, Charlie Dixon.
Dixon lit up the third quarter, kicking two important goals in a row within three minutes to give the Power a bit of breathing space from the Dogs on the scoreboard.
As well as hitting the scoreboard himself, the big man was influential up forward with five score involvements.
The 29-year old finished the night with 10 disposals and five marks – all of which were contested.
Tom Rockliff’s performance against the Dogs earned him third place in the voting.
Labelled by senior coach Ken Hinkley, the “stoppage architect”, Rockliff was instrumental in the midfield, collecting 23 disposals and four clearances.
Rockliff’s pressure around the ground was enormous, recording a game-high 15 tackles and 33 pressure acts.
Skipper Tom Jonas came in fourth place in the fans’ vote.
Jonas led from the front and continued his outstanding form down back this season.
The key defender was pivotal in defence when the Dogs were pushing hard in the first half, finishing the night with 10 spoils, five marks and 13 disposals.
Rounding out the votes for Round 10 were Peter Ladhams (5th place), Robbie Gray (6th place), Hamish Hartlett (7th place) and Ollie Wines (8th place).
The Power now has a five-day turnaround to face the reigning premiers Richmond at Adelaide Oval on Saturday afternoon.
