Adelaide, the GWS Giants and Hawthorn’s three nominees have been announced in the lead up to the AFL Players’ Association MVP awards on Tuesday, September 13.
The nomination for the MVP Award is a two-stage process. The first involves players nominating three teammates for the award, before three nominees from every club are presented to the wider playing group for a vote to decide the winner.
