Nelson, who plays for the Collingwood Magpies, has netted a cumulative 95.5 points to be ranked among the top scorers of round 11.

 In addition to being nominated player of the round, the Jamaican’s effort has also seen her listed among the team of the round along with six other in-form players who are vying for the individual accolade.
