Hawthorn defender Karl Amon has been judged the best afield following Hawthorn’s five-point win over St Kilda on Saturday afternoon at University of Tasmania (UTAS) Stadium. 

The 28-year-old was not only voted in by Hawks fans as the game’s MVP but he also claimed the Silk-Miller Medal for Hawthorn’s best player on the ground, voted on by the opposing president - in this case, St Kilda President Andrew Bassat.

The double recognition comes off the back of an impressive outing in Tasmania, as Amon led all-comers with 31 disposals at a remarkable 94 per cent efficiency.

He backed that up with game-highs in metres gained (711) and rebound 50s (11) while also taking a team-high seven marks and registering four score involvements.

Amon’s season has been a picture of consistency, averaging 21.6 disposals, 17 kicks, six marks and 543 metres gained per game across his nine matches so far this season.

Speaking post-game, the Hawks defender said it was nice for him and his teammates to get rewarded for their effort with back-to-back wins. 

“Last week (against the Bulldogs) was pretty close as well so for a really young group to go through that and come out on top twice has given us some good confidence,” Amon said.
