Cunningham, Hore and Newman in the forward line.

Jakobsson in the backline.

O'Dea and Paxman in the midfield.

6. Bianca Jakobsson (Melb) 
5. Chelsea Randall (Adel)

Got to respect O'Dea for being in the team of the week again despite not being the super-standout player either week. She simply delivers a really high standard every time.
