Shuey wins Norm Smith medal

LUKE Shuey has won the Norm Smith Medal.

The Eagles midfielder finished with game-high possessions (34), contested possessions (19), inside 50s (eight) and equal-high score involvements (eight) despite a heavy tag from Levi Greenwood.

He had rocketed to 29 disposals by three-quarter time, and although he had just five last-quarter possessions, one of them came from the Pies' kick-in with it all to play for inside the last minute.
