Familiar faces lead AFLW MVP nominations

Two-time AFLW players’ MVP Erin Phillips headlines the Round 4 AFLW MVP of the Week nominations, proudly supported by July.

Collingwood co-captain Brianna Davey and Fremantle midfielder Kiara Bowers both earned their second nomination for the season after influential performances in their side’s victories.


Returning to her best-and-fairest winning form, Phillips almost single-handedly beat Brisbane on Sunday with a four-goal haul.

The 35-year-old reminded everyone why she’s one of the competition’s most dangerous performers, with a prolific display in the forward-half of the ground.

Phillips gathered 21 disposals, eight marks, five inside 50s and four clearances as the Crows secured a 12-point victory and move into the top four.

Earning her second nomination for the season, Davey proved the difference for the Pies with a best-on-ground display. Davey collected 31 disposals, 13 contested possessions and seven clearances as Collingwood stormed home to a 20-point win to remain as one of two undefeated teams in the competition.

In a one-sided affair, Bowers led Fremantle’s charge and solidified herself as one of the best players in the competition this season. The tough midfielder overcame a tight tag to finish the game with 17 touches and lay a staggering 15 tackles as the Dockers received a healthy percentage boost with the 49-point victory.
