The Inner Sanctum has put together a team of the week comprised of the best performing players in Round 6 of the 2022 AFLW season.
Defenders are rewarded for their defensive play, midfielders receive accolades for their dominance, while forwards receive a shout-out for hitting the scoreboard and applying pressure.
This was the first round where we had all teams playing without any rescheduling or catch-up games. You can read last week’s team here.
