Everyone loves a good countdown.

To celebrate the impending return of the NAB AFLW competition, womens.afl has gone back with the flight of the ball, putting its body on the line and has ranked the top 30 players across the 14 sides.

Aspects considered included impact on games and pure talent, with extra weight given to consistency of performance.

With total player pool of 420 to choose from, this 30 represent the top 7.1 per cent of the competition.

No.4: Dana Hooker (West Coast)

One of the classiest, most consistent midfielders going around, Hooker will be a huge boon for West Coast in its first season. 

The former Docker is an elite runner and true onballer, covering the ground with ease, averaging 17.1 disposals and 5.2 tackles a game. 

Hooker's form has been so strong, she has finished second in the past two AFLW competition best and fairest awards.

She also took out the Dockers' inaugural best and fairest and finished second in 2018-19.
