If Erin Phillips’ week couldn’t get any better, she capped it off by taking out the competition’s best and fairest award after a dominant display in the AFLW Grand Final .
Phillips won the award after tallying 14 votes across the seven games, four more than her nearest opponent.
The accolades continued to flow for the Crows star as she managed to do something no man has ever done before.
By taking out the inaugural best and fairest award, it adds to her list of achievements that include a grand final win, Norm Smith equivalent, AFL Players Association MVP and All-Australian honours.
