VOTE NOW TO WIN
Madeline Keryk (20 Disposals, 17 Kicks, Four Marks)
Keryk repelled the Dockers’ forward thrusts time and time again as she built a wall across the half back line.
The 24-year-old took a number of strong intercept marks while seemingly having the ball on a string as the Dockers dominated the inside 50s.
Julia Crocket-Grills (22 Disposals, 12 Kicks, 77 Fantasy Points)
Crocket-Grills kicked off the year in style as she rolled through the midfield, winning plenty of the ball as she more than doubled her career disposal average of 9.7 per game.
Rocky Cranston (14 Disposals, One Goal, Two Tackles)
Cranston kicked an incredible running goal, handballing the ball to herself as she outpaced Docker Evie Gooch and finished truly on the run.
The experienced Cat showed plenty of x-factor as she rotated between the forward line and ruck.
Olivia Purcell (27 disposals, Five Marks, Four Tackles, 93 Fantasy Points)
The second-year midfielder racked up the possessions with a hard-edged, classic midfield performance.
Purcell looks poised to back up on her Rising Star nomination in 2019.
Rebecca Webster (21 Disposals, Seven Marks, 80 Fantasy Points)
Webster was another Cat to stand out with a more significant role through the midfield in her second AFLW season, after winning the Cats’ 2019 VFLW Best and Fairest.
After averaging 9.4 touches per game across her short career, Webster exploded to accumulate 21 touches on the afternoon.
