WNCL returns for the decisive round this weekend with five teams still in realistic contention to make the February 9 final. 

ACT and Tasmania are both locked on three wins, with New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland in close pursuit; all within five points of the leaders.

Boosting the chasing pack is the return of their Australian players, who were unavailable in round two due to World Cup duty.

Individually, Western Australia’s Heather Graham comfortably leads the ACA WNCL Captain’s MVP.

Graham has enjoyed a breakout season polling in every match so far, and has 283 runs and 10 wickets to her name. 

She leads South Australian all-rounder Tahlia McGrath by eight votes. 

Rounding out the top five, is Tasmanian pair Corinne Hall and Georgia Redmayne on 18 votes, while Breakers’ spinner Maisy Gibson sits two further back.
