Ava Seton is one of the more productive and readymade midfielders outside he AFL  Women 's. An injury replacement player for Brisbane during Season 7, while Seton did not get a chance on-field, she still showed she was on the peripheral of stepping up to the top level. Her game is underpinned by a fierce contested nature, thriving on the inside elements of football as well as the defensive areas.

As competitive as they come, Seton is a high production player who went to another level this year for University of Queensland as one of the top ball-winners in the competition. She averaged 26.3 disposals, 5.3 clearances and 7.9 tackles this season, and was a force through the Red Lionesses midfield.

In terms of her ball-winning, Seton's efficiency by foot has improved, with her clean hands a long-time feature of her game. Boasting a 75 per cnet contested rate at QAFL Women's level, teh former Queensland state representative does not shy away from the contest. Her production numbers lifted across the board, and she earned Team of the Year honours in he competition.

Areas that Seton can continue to work on are her outside game and aerial ability, with the Queensland youngster not as prolific once outside the contest, and has always been a better ground level player than aerialist. Still, her strengths outweigh her improvements, and given her game went to another level in 2023 coming off her season training with the Lions in 2022, expect her to be among the considerations in the AFLW Draft.
