Adelaide star Rory Laird has claimed the Members’ MVP award for the 2021 season.

The 27-year-old enjoyed a stellar campaign, averaging 32 possessions, 5.9 tackles and 6.8 clearances this year.

Laird flourished in 2021 after transitioning from defence into a permanent midfield role.

It is the third time Laird has won the award, having taken it home in 2015 and 2018.

He joins Adelaide greats such as Tyson Edwards (2002, 2004, 2006), Simon Goodwin (2005) and Daniel Talia in 2019, to have won the award.
