Each round this season, the Zero Hanger team - consisting of editor Mitch Keating, senior reporter Jack Fitzpatrick, general manager Nick Splitter, and deputy editor Ed Carmine - will vote on every game to establish our AFL MVP for 2022.

Votes will be given out on a 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 system for each game, meaning the maximum score any player can record in any game is 20.

Round 3 presented some incredibly entertaining football, with some of the game's biggest stars lighting up the field to get their team over the line in spectacular fashion. Some surprising names also stood up to the occasion, sweeping the majority of their votes for their respective games.

Patrick Cripps maintained his form, Clayton Oliver took the spotlight over his teammates and Lachie Schultz shined in the competition during this round's voting.


Here are the Round 3 MVP votes for each game.
