Dynamic Drennan claims AFLW MVP of the Week nomination

Gold Coast midfielder Alison Drennan has claimed her first AFLW MVP of the Week nomination, presented by Snaffle, dominating through the midfield as the Suns posted a 33-point win over West Coast.

The hard-running Drennan is joined by Brisbane’s Emily Bates for a second-straight week, while St Kilda’s Bianca Jakobsson was also nominated from round two of action.

Drennan gathered 24 disposals and seven clearances, laying nine tackls and kicking a goal in the process.

Bates – the AFLW MVP of Season 6 – was again brilliant for the Lions, collecting 20 disposals and booting two game-shaping goals.

Meanwhile the Saints’ Jakobsson controlled the game from half-back with 21 disposals and eight intercepts as a rampant St Kilda thumped Hawthorn by 53 points.
