Three players from each club were put forward for the MVP Award, which took place over a two-stage voting process. Players nominated their teammates in stage one before selecting from a competition-wide field in stage two.

Brownlow Medal favourite Ollie Wines headlined the list of Port Adelaide players put forward for MVP. But star veteran Travis Boak wasn’t nominated, despite his outstanding 2021 campaign, with Aliir Aliir and Karl Amon the Power’s other two nominees.

It comes three days after Boak was arguably the most surprising omission from the 40-man All-Australian squad that was released.

Steven May, Clayton Oliver and Christian Petracca were Melbourne’s nominees, with captain Max Gawn overlooked.

Toby Greene, Jacob Hopper and Sam Taylor pipped star midfielders Josh Kelly and Tim Taranto for nominations from the Giants.

Much-improved Bombers defender Jayden Laverde was nominated for the award, alongside All-Australian squad members Zach Merrett and Darcy Parish.

The AFL Players’ Association awards will be announced on September 2. The 22Under22 team was announced on Thursday.
