Davey averaged 23.1 disposals per game and also won the AFLPA most valuable player, leading the Magpies to a second-consecutive finals series.

Six players were named All-Australian for the first time: Collingwood duo Roby Schleicher and Brittany Bonnici, Fremantle’s Janelle Cuthbertson, St Kilda’s Georgia Patrikios, Richmond captain Katie Brennan and Carlton ruck Breann Moody.

North Melbourne captain Emma Kearney and Melbourne stalwart Karen Paxman became the only two players to have been named All-Australian in all five seasons of the AFLW competition.

Five other players retained their spots from the 21 players named in the 2020 AFL Women’s All Australian Team – Sarah Allan (Adelaide Crows), Kate Lutkins (Brisbane Lions), Kiara Bowers (Fremantle), Jasmine Garner (North Melbourne) and Alyce Parker (GWS).

Competition leading goalkicker Darcy Vescio was named on the interchange, with Erin Phillips and Chloe Molloy preferred in the forward line.
