AFLW Team of the Week, round two

DUAL premiership star Anne Hatchard's latest record of 14 marks has locked the Crow into womens.afl's Team of the Week for round two.

Fellow record-setter Kerryn Harrington (23 disposals at 100 per cent efficiency) joins Hatchard, lining up in defence, while Ash Woodland's second four-goal haul made her a certainty for the forward line.

The team is selected to mirror the All-Australian side: five defenders, six midfielders (including a ruck), five forwards and five interchange players.

2022 FIXTURE Every match, every round

Like the All-Australian team, it has players selected in general categories, rather than in traditional positions. The 16-a-side set-up often means teams play with varying configurations, making set selections (e.g wings and flanks) difficult.

MIDFIELDERS

DREAM STREAM How to catch every AFLW match in 2022

Hatchard (29 disposals, 17 contested) set a record for the most marks in a game with 14, Bonnici (26, 10 tackles, six clearances) stood up well in Bri Davey's absence and Miller (19 and seven tackles) got the full 10 votes from the coaches.

The sparkling touch of Conti (25, eight clearances) was once again on show, while Rowbottom (17, 12 tackles, five clearances) demonstrated why she went at No.1 in last year's draft.
