ALL AUSTRALIAN midfielder Ally Anderson has capped a terrific AFLW season, being crowned Brisbane's best and fairest winner on Friday night.
The 22-year-old finished with 95 votes, 11 clear of Nat Exon (84) and a further six votes back to last year's winner Kat Lutkins (78).
Inaugural winner Emily Bates (76) was fourth.
Anderson was a deserving winner, averaging 21 disposals (third in the competition) and five tackles a game in a difficult season for the Lions.
Her round four performance in the win over the Western Bulldogs saw Anderson voted the AFL Players MVP of the Week and poll maximum coaches votes. Lions coach Craig Starcevich said Anderson was one of the hardest workers at the club.
"In three seasons we’ve seen Ally’s disposal average in the AFLW competition triple," he said.
"Having the likes of (Lions premiership winners) Simon Black and Clark Keating helping her with her craft work has seen her game go to a new level.
"We are all thrilled she received this honour."
Exon won the Players' Player award, while Jesse Wardlaw was named Best First Year Player.
