Huntington’s third season in the AFLW competition was her finest, where she played five out of six games before the competition was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic 

She averaged 13 disposals and five marks per game, after injuries restricted her to just five games over the previous two years. 

For the fourth successive season, Bulldogs skipper Ellie Blackburn was named in the initial 40-player squad. 

Blackburn is already a dual All-Australian, having made the team in the first two years of the AFLW competition.
