Tom Mitchell has received the nod from fans as Hawthorn’s Round 18 MVP following the side's draw with Melbourne.

Mitchell was simply superb on Saturday night, playing a crucial role for the Hawks as they matched the ladder leaders.

Up against arguably the best midfield in the competition, the 2018 Brownlow Medallist registered game-high numbers in disposals (39), metres gained (610m), marks (six) and kicks (22), while he recorded team-high tallies of clearances (six), contested possessions (19), uncontested possessions (19), intercept possessions (10), handballs (17) AND one goal! 

Clarko: "We'll gain a helluva lot out of the game"

The 28-year-old's performance further cements his place as the competition's top ball-getter in 2021, having racked up 585 disposals at an average of 34.4 per game.

He leads a peloton of Jack Macrae (576), Ollie Wines (557) and Zach Merrett (551).
