Standout

Round 18, 2019 (versus Geelong Cats): In his 200th AFL game for Hawthorn, Shiels was imperious in midfield. He collected 29 disposals, laid eight tackles and kicked two goals as he led from the front against the much-vaunted Geelong midfield. His attack on the ball was ferocious and he galvanised his teammates to turn the screws on the Cats, resulting in a comfortable Hawthorn victory, against the odds.

Shocker

Round 2, 2019 (versus Western Bulldogs): Shiels suffered an injury in the course of the game that arguably helped to cost Hawthorn the victory. With only eight disposals to his name at the time of his injury, there's no doubt that Hawthorn missed his presence on the ground as the Bulldogs overran the Hawks in the second half.
