AFLW Player of the Week (Round Four)
We our now at the halfway mark of the AFL Women’s home and away season and things are starting to heat up.
With just four regular season games left, some teams are fighting to hold onto their finals spot, while other teams are attempting to mount a comeback in the final few weeks.
Round four of the AFL Women’s competition gave us several highlights and has set up an intriguing race for final spots, and of course, we are here to bring you our top three picks for the AFLW Player of the Week.
These honourable mentions go to the players who either just missed out on making the top three or were ones that were received several nominations by our followers.
Anne Hatchard (Adelaide) - 27 disposals, seven marks and a goal.
Jasmine Garner (North Melbourne) - 30 disposals, three marks and two tackles.
Olivia Purcell (Geelong) - 20 disposals, four tackles and a goal
#3. Grace Egan (Carlton)
One of two players that received the NAB Rising Star nomination for round four, Grace Egan was a valuable performer for the Blues during their Grand Final rematch against the Crows.
In total, this 2019 first round draftee, collected 18 disposals, six marks and four tackles, which is another great performance by Grace this season, as she sits with an average of 16 disposals and six tackles a game.
#2. Gabby Newton (Western Bulldogs)
The Bulldogs didn’t get the result they were hoping for against the Eagles, but at least they had one of this week’s NAB Rising Star nominees.
Young Gabby Newton played her best AFLW game thus far, finishing with 16 disposals, five marks and an impressive ten tackles. This is just her first year of AFLW, yet she currently sits with an average of seven tackles a game, which shows exactly why she was selected with pick number one during the 2019 NAB AFLW Draft.
#1. Catherine Svarc (Brisbane)
There were a lot of stand outs during the Lions 28-point win over the Giants, but we cannot go past Catherine Svarc. After getting selected with pick 16 during the first round of the 2019 NAB AFLW Draft, she has become a reliable performer for the Lions.
All up, Catherine collected 23 disposals, 11 tackles and booted two goals in what was easily her best performance in the AFL Women’s competition so far.
