Carlton skipper Brianna Davey, Melbourne recruit Maddison Gay and Fremantle midfielder Kiara Bowers were also awarded full marks by the coaches in their respective games.

Cats midfield duo Olivia Purcell and Rocky Cranston received seven votes each after dominant games in the Cats' engine room.

Purcell finished the game with 20 possessions, 10 tackles and a goal. While Cranston was equally impressive, finishing with a game-high 22 disposals.

Defender Maddy McMahon rounds out the Cats to receive votes this week with three. The 29-year-old was a strong performer across half-back with 14 disposals and six marks.
