Newton managed every game in her debut season as a Bulldog, averaging 13 disposals and seven tackles per game.

The 18-year-old was nominated for the NAB AFLW Rising Star award in Round 4 against West Coast, following a 16-disposal and 10-tackle performance.

Huntington, who has had an unlucky run with injuries since her debut in 2018, played all but one game this season.

She finished the six-round season ranked equal-first for contested marks, and second for intercept possessions across the competition.
