AFLW coaches' Votes: Round 2

AFLW coaches' Votes: Round 2

By

Western Bulldogs gun, Emma Kearney, and Carlton skipper, Brianna Davey, have shot to the lead of the Shadforth Financial Group AFLCA AFLW Champion Player of the Year Award, following stellar displays in Round 3.

Davey, whose night was soured after rupturing her ACL, collected 16 disposals and six tackles as a key pillar at half-back and was unanimously named as the best player on the ground by the respective coaches.

Kearney received seven votes from the coaches following her 18 disposals, nine tackles and four clearances in the Bulldogs’ nine-point win.

Both Davey and Kearney have a two-vote lead atop the coaches’ award leaderboard.

Melbourne’s Karen Paxman was the other standout in Round 2, receiving maximum votes for her 21 disposals and four clearances against the reigning premiers on Saturday, despite only spending 71 per cent of the game on the ground due to a back issue.
