Kelly nearly single-handedly helped the Giants across the line with an impressive performance. His heroics helped the Giants stay in the game whenever the kangaroos were looking to blow the match open.
He finished with 39 touches (17 contested), 8 inside 50s, 12 score involvements, 6 tackles, 6 clearances, and 2 majors. It's no wonder why many Victorian clubs are interested in Kelly, who can become a free agent at the end of the season.

Mitchell was back to his ball-winning best, with another excellent showing. He helped the Hawks control the middle and give his forwards first use of the ball.
He ended with 34 touches (16 contested), 7 tackles, 6 intercepts, and 4 inside 50s. Mitchell was one of the best-on-ground against his old side as the Hawks upset the Swans.
While tagged early in the match, Laird managed to shake off Luke Dustan's tag to help his side to an unlikely comeback victory against the Saints. He gathered 21 of his 33 possessions in the 2nd half.
He also completed 8 tackles, 10 clearances, 6 score involvements, and 5 inside 50s. Laird's second half was one of the main reasons the Crows were able to win the close contest.
Where's the love for @rorylaird?
His Q4 on Sat night:
