The third round of the NRL Telstra Women's Premiership produced three quality matches and impressive individual performances across the competition.

Brisbane's narrow victory over the Dragons was hailed one of the best matches in the NRLW's short history while the Roosters and Eels recorded handy wins to keep them well and truly in the finals race.

Here is the NRLW Team of the week!

1. Botille Vette-Welsh (Eels)

Another standout performance from the Eels No.1 in a competitive fullback field across the NRLW each week. Vette-Welsh continues to make inroads on the competition, churning out 260 metres in an all-time record in the women's game on Sunday. Vette-Welsh eclipsed Millie Boyle's efforts of 223 metres in round one.

2. Hagiga Mosby (Broncos)

Thursday Island product Mosby is quickly becoming a fan-favourite on the left edge with the Broncos winger darting over for the match-winning try on Sunday. Mosby's 77 metres from only six carries enabled to the Broncos to get out of yardage when they were on the back foot.

3. Tiana Penitani (Eels)

A commanding performance from the Eels centre, who ran for 136 metres with two try assists, three offloads and two tackle busts. 

Kelly's gem of a day

4. Isabelle Kelly (Roosters)

A dominant performance from the star centre with 151 metres, including 47 post contact, along with a try, two try assists and two offloads.

5. Brydie Parker (Roosters)

A joyful return to the wing for the Muswellbrook junior, Parker's combination with Isabelle Kelly proved lethal on the left edge with the flyer crossing the line for her first career double while churning out 118 metres.

6. Tarryn Aiken (Broncos)

Another classy performance from the Broncos five-eighth who earns Team of the Week honours for a third consecutive week. Aiken led the way for her side with 189 kick metres while scoring a crucial try in the first half in the game of the round. 

7. Maddie Studdon (Eels)

With a try, two try assists and three line break assists, Studdon enjoyed her first day out on home turf to help guide the Eels to their second-ever NRLW victory. Although she struggled with the boot via goal-kicking, she controlled the match with 238 kick metres and linked well with Emily Curtain and Bo Vette-Welsh.

8. Elsie Albert (Dragons)

Another barnstorming performance from the PNG powerhouse with a try, 158 metres and 26 tackles almost getting the Dragons over the line on Sunday. 

9. Lauren Brown (Broncos)

A classy performance from the Bronco, who is relishing the move to the hooker role this season. Brown's creativity at dummy half has added another element for the side while she's a proven goal-kicker who makes it look easy from the sideline.

Albert is everywhere

10. Annetta Nu'uausala (Knights)

One of Newcastle's most consistent performers in the opening three rounds, Nu'uausala led from the front again for her side in round three with a try, 85 running metres, four tackle busts, three offloads and 18 tackles. 

11. Olivia Kernick (Roosters)

Three tries in three games has Olivia Kernick fast becoming one of the emerging stars in the NRLW this year. Kernick and back-row partner Yasmin Meakes were outstanding for the Tricolours and helped enable the side's outside backs to shine. Kernick finished the game with a try, an assist, 103 running metres and 34 tackles.

Bent goes large

12. Shaylee Bent (Dragons)

A commanding performance from the Dragons back-rower who found herself on the wing in the second half when she showed some pace to run around Hayley Maddick for a try to remember on Sunday. Bent's 189 metres was her best to date while she was only second behind Holli Wheeler on the tackle count with 36.

13. Destiny Brill (Titans)

Another brilliant performance from the Maroons young gun in a beaten side. Brill finished the match with a try, 103 metres and made 35 tackles with 100% efficiency.
