Shiels’ 2013 season was twice interrupted by ankle injuries, restricting him to 17 senior games. The young midfielder was again used primarily as a run-with player, his fitness and discipline allowing him to shut down some of the game’s most dangerous players. Considered a future leader of the club, Shiels will be aiming to step up as one of the Hawks’ primary on-ballers in 2014.

Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 34 overall.
