Western Sydney Wanderers
Abigale Smith – 8
Was strong against Brisbane’s early aggressive attack, communicated well throughout the game to organise her side and distributed the ball well - got caught out a couple of times in the second half.
Sam Staab – 7
Completed some perfectly timed challenges in defence and distributed the ball well through the midfield, a few balls beat her behind the defensive line.
Courtney Nevin – 7
Played some neat passes and moved the ball forward quickly, read her opposition players well although occasionally left them with too much time and space.
