W Awards: Nine named dual All Australians

AFLW: All Australian team Chelsea Randall has been announced as captain of the Virgin Australia AFLW All Australian team

NINE women have repeated their effort from last year to make back-to-back Virgin Australia AFLW All Australian teams, as announced at a gala event in Docklands on Tuesday night. 

Adelaide co-captain Chelsea Randall was named skipper of the side while last year's leader, Daisy Pearce, was named as Randall's deputy.

Along with Randall and Pearce, the others to repeat were Melbourne's Karen Paxman and Elise O'Dea, Brisbane duo Emily Bates and Sabrina Frederick-Traub, Carlton key forward Tayla Harris and Western Bulldogs premiership pair Emma Kearney and Ellie Blackburn. 

The Dogs also had the competition's leading goalkicker Brooke Lochland and defender Hannah Scott named in the side. 

Brisbane forward Jess Wuetschner, who finished with the most goals for the year (including the Grand Final), nabbed a spot up forward.

Collingwood defender Chloe Molloy capped off an excellent debut season by being named in the backline, alongside Lions mainstay Kate Lutkins. 

Greater Western Sydney had ruck Erin McKinnon and the AFLPA MVP Courtney Gum picked while Alicia Eva was on the wing. 

Two from Fremantle were selected: Ebony Antonio and Dana Hooker. The Magpies also had the same number, with creative forward Christina Bernardi named in the forward line, to go along with Molloy. 

Demons defender Meg Downie was named for the first time.
