Despite falling short of premiership glory in the City of Churches, the heart and soul of Melbourne's AFLW side, Daisy Pearce, claimed top honours for the third time in six seasons.

Having averaged 11 disposals and slotting 13 majors across the course of the summer, the 33-year-old pioneer earned the gong above her array of burgeoning peers.

The legendary figure also earned her third All-Australian call up in 2022, as well as being announced as the competition's leading captain.

Given her sustained dominance and the Redlegs still sitting well within their premiership window, Pearce now faces the tough decision of whether to play on or move into the coaching sphere.
