West Coast midfield gun Dana Hooker is in contention to claim her third All Australian honour after she was named in the 2020 AFLW All Australian squad this morning.

Hooker, who earned All Australian recognition in 2018 and 2019 during her time at Fremantle, was the only Eagle selected in the 40-player squad.

A final team of 21 players including a captain and vice-captain will be announced at the W Awards to be held at a yet to be specified date later this year.

The two-time AFLW best and fairest runner-up had a fantastic year in blue and gold, averaging a team-high 19.7 disposals and 6.7 tackles per game.

She showed incredible resilience in 2020, fronting up for every fixture despite receiving extra attention from the opposition every game and copping two stray kicks to the head in back-to-back fixtures against Fremantle and Greater Western Sydney.

Hooker kick-started her life as an Eagle in spectacular style by kicking the club’s first AFLW goal in the opening term of the team round one clash with Collingwood at Victoria Park.

She led from the front that day, amassing 18 disposals and four tackles in the club’s maiden AFLW outing.

She was a picture of consistency throughout West Coast’s inaugural campaign, but was particularly influential against Greater Western Sydney in round three, where she amassed 23 disposals and eight tackles, and Gold Coast in round six when she amassed a season-high 31 disposals and laid six tackles at Mineral Resources Park.

The 2020 AFL Women’s All Australian squad was selected by a panel comprising Nicole Livingstone (Chair, AFL), Steve Hocking (AFL), Josh Vanderloo (AFL), Kelli Underwood (Fox Footy), Sarah Black (AFL.com.au), Tim Harrington (AFLPA), Shelley Ware (media commentator), Sharelle McMahon (media commentator).
