AFLW Best and Fairest named

The AFLW last night named 2 winners on its night of nights… Taking out the Best and Fairest for the season: Collingwood’s co-captain Brianna Davey and Fremantle’s Kiara Bowers. They tied on 15 votes each across the 9 rounds leading up to the finals. The duo had an extra good night with Davey named the All-Australian team captain and Bowers vice-captain. And if you’re wondering what the All-Aussie team is, they don’t actually play a game – it’s recognition from an esteemed panel of the best 21 players from across the league in their positions. For Bowers (who is also a carpenter), playing footy and holding down a full-time job means “I leave the house at 5-5.30am, and don’t get in till 9pm”. Her story underlines recently retired Sharni Norder’s call for a full AFLW season and contracts for players allowing them to be full-time athletes.
