Two Blues in Team of the Week

Walker at the double Brooke Walker kicks her first goal closely followed by her second.

FOR the fifth time this season, the AFLW Team of the Week features Carlton’s No.4.

Following her 27-disposal performance against Brisbane, it should come as no surprise that Madison Prespakis was included in the midfield.

It was just another accolade coming from Prespakis’ performance, having also received the acclaim from her coaches — she received the perfect 10 votes in the AFLW Coaches Player of the Year award.

 

Having appeared in the team on five out of six occasions, the young star has been included the equal-most out of anyone in the competition. She is joined Jess Duffin (North Melbourne), Meg McDonald (Geelong) and gun midfielder Erin Phillips (Adelaide).

Prespakis wasn’t alone in Navy Blue, with Brooke Walker making her first appearance in the Team of the Week.

Not for the first time this season, Walker proved she was much more than just a rugby sevens convert on the way to a critical role in Carlton’s win.

Named in the forward line of the Team of the Week, Walker collected 12 disposals and produced an inspired third term which saw her kick two goals in quick succession.
