At A Glance

AFLW Debut: v Greater Western Sydney, Round One, 2017
Recruited from: WNBA (Basketball)
AFLW Best & Fairest votes: 14

If there was an award, Phillips won it.

A prolific ball-winner, Phillips has clean hands at ground level and is a strong mark overhead. The co-captain played a key role in the Crows’ premiership triumph.

Player Honours: AFLW best and fairest 2017; AFLPA MVP 2017; Best and fairest 2017; All-Australian 2017; Premiership 2017; Co-Captain 2017.

Draft history: 2016 rookie signing (Adelaide).

Swept the awards after an individually brilliant season. The dominant player of the competition, Phillips played a key role in the Crows’ premiership win. Willed her team to victory with match-winning goals against Collingwood and Carlton (the latter of which was crowned Goal of the Year) and was best on ground in the Grand Final. Her remarkable season was recognised with the AFLW Best and Fairest, AFL Players’ Association MVP and Crows Club Champion award, as well as All Australian selection. As co-captain, helped set the standards for hard work and professionalism at the Crows.
