Denmark’s Parris Laurie has played her best game yet in the AFLW for Fremantle, starring in the ruck as her side made it three straight wins to start the 2019 season on Saturday at Fremantle Oval.

Laurie has led the Dockers ruck in her debut season and was highly influential for her side as they ran out comfortable winners over Collingwood in round 3.

The 24-year-old was the second highest disposal winner for the Dockers, collecting 17 in total and having 11 hit-outs as her side were convincing 33-point winners.

Laurie is averaging 10 disposals a game in a bright start to her AFLW career and it has mirrored the Dockers’ winning start to the season as they sit second by percentage in the conference A standings.
