A NAVY Blue duo.
Two Blues have been recognised for their impressive performances in Carlton’s 16-point victory over Melbourne at Traeger Park on Saturday.
New Blue Mua Laloifi and 2019 Rising Star Madison Prespakis have been named in the AFLW Team of the Week for Round 6.
Prespakis capped off what was a best-on-ground performance against the Demons with her third nod in 2020, to go with her nine votes in the AFLCA AFLW Champion Player of the Year award.
The second-year Blue’s influence was undeniable in the Top End, with her 23 disposals and final-quarter goal proving all the difference in the fightback on the road.
Laloifi’s nod comes after only her sixth game of senior football, with this being the second time the defender has made the team in 2020 – her first being against the Western Bulldogs in Round 3.
The 2019 draftee was composed against Melbourne, stemming a continuous attack in the first half and ending the day with 16 disposals, four tackles and three marks.
