Monique Conti, Katie Brennan and Eilish Sheerin have been named as the Club's nominees for the esteemed AFL Players’ Association AFLW Most Valuable Player Award for 2023.

Voting for the AFLW MVP is a two-stage process, with players nominating their teammates in stage one before selecting from a competition-wide field in stage two.

Players cannot vote for a player from their own club during stage two of the voting process.

Conti will be looking to defend her MVP title after receiving the accolade in 2022, becoming the first ever Richmond AFLW player to win the prestigious award. 

The twenty-three-year old enjoyed another yet sensational season, averaging 29 disposals, six tackles and five-inside 50s per game.

She became the first AFLW Tiger to reach 1000 disposals and led the competition for average clearances (7.3 per game). 


Conti was also recently named in the 2023 All-Australian squad, alongside Sheerin, whose second AFLW campaign saw her average 18 disposals, 357 metres gained, five tackles, four rebound-50s and three marks per game.

Sheerin, 31, was a major contributor to Richmond's 52-point Round 10 win, collecting a career-high 24 disposals after a move into the midfield.

She laid nine tackles against Gold Coast in Round 6 and amassed 611 metres gained in Richmond's Round 8 victory over Hawthorn. 

Captain Brennan put together another classy season, leading the Tigers' goalkicking count with 14 majors throughout the 10 rounds.

Brennan, also 31, kicked a career-high four goals in the Round 10 win, including her 50th in the Yellow and Black, and reached the 50-game milestone in Round 8.

In other categories, Charli Wicksteed has been nominated for the Best First-Year Player, Bethany Lynch as the competition's Most Courageous, and much-loved skipper Brennan for Best Captain.
