Changkuoth Jiath has received the nod from fans as Hawthorn’s Round 2 MVP following the side's loss to Richmond.
Changkuoth Jiath is demanding attention with the way he has started his 2021 campaign.
Jiath was a stand-out performer for the Hawks despite the loss, collecting 25 disposals, eight marks and three inside 50s off the half-back line.
Perhaps the most impressive element of his game though was his 11 intercept possessions - more than any other player on the ground.
The 21-year-old is playing with a new-found confidence in his fourth season at the club, thriving under the faith shown in him by his teammates and coaches.
With an incredible array of athletic attributes known to the Hawks supporter base for some time, Jiath is now showing off a much-improved game awareness and ability to read the play.
There is no statistical category that better emphasises that than his game-high number of intercept possessions.
Set to play just the 10th game of his career in the club's upcoming Easter Monday clash against Geelong, the future is certainly looking bright for Changkuoth Jiath.
