Yep, she deserved it. Was a good night. Our other recent pick up Bonser was right near the top of the medal count as well.

Commentators thought Ashlee Atkins best on for grand final, though the medal didnt go to her. She played well.

Eagles AFLW senior coach Luke Dwyer offered a three-point assessment of each player’s WAFLW Grand Final performance.

East Fremantle:

Ashlee Atkins: (midfielder/forward)


- Superb over four quarters. Hunted and won her own possessions.
- Kicked the ball with penetration and applied great pressure on the opposition
- Great performance and clearly one of the best players in the Grand Final

Ashton Hill: (defender)

- A very impressive four-quarter game. She used the ball effectively, won her one-on-one contests and provided East Fremantle with plenty of run and drive from defence
- Predictable in spoIling the ball and bringing it to ground
- Played her role perfectly for the premiers

Swan Districts:

Kellie Gibson: (midfielder/forward)


- Was one of Swan Districts’ best players in a losing side
- Looked dangerous forward. Took a great contested mark in the last quarter and kicked the goal
- Contested ball and repeat efforts were great throughout the whole game. She never gave up and can hold her head high

Mikayla Bowen: (midfielder)

-
Played a solid game. Found plenty of possessions and never gave up
- Kicked the ball really well; penetration and decision making was good
- A great experience for a young player. She will be a better player for it

Emily McGuire (defender)

- Defended really well. Cleared the defence with some excellent kicking and passing
- Took some really important drop off marks under pressure
- Tackled well and played with intensity

Not sure about this. She missed a lot of 2018, but a lot of that was injury I think. Not sure I would want a West Aussie to miss because of her, on the other hand, I dont want us to pick a player not as good just because they are West Australian, if she is going to be in WA anyway. I guess it comes down to how good they think she is relative to these not selected so far.

I don’t think we’ll pick her jatz14
