I guess if you take the All-Australian squad as a guide for the Rising Star award Ellie is up against Tyla Hanks (Melb) and Mikayla Brown (WC). They are the only 3 All-Aust squad members nominated for this years rising star so you would expect the winner to come from these three.

What puzzles me a bit is that while Ellie is a first year player, Bowen has played 9 games this year and all of Melbourne's 6 games in 2020. Hanks played 9 games this year, all 7 in 2020 AND 7 in 2019!

I'd reckon if you have played a full season in previous years that should pretty much rule you out. In the men's Rising Star award you are ruled out if you have played 10 or more games at the start of the season. The women have a shorter season so it should be on a pro rata basis which works out to around 4 games.

The fact that it is Hanks 3rd season is just taking the piss.
