RECAP | AFLW Trade Period 2023

THE AFLW Trade Period wrapped up for 2023 yesterday, with plenty of familiar faces changing clubs over the last 10 days.

If you missed anything that went down during the Trade Period, here is a recap of the entire period.

Mega Trade Number 1

The first trade of the entire period was a big one, and involved plenty of well known faces moving between Collingwood, North Melbourne and St Kilda.

Jaimee Lambert, Stephanie Chiocci and pick 31 in the upcoming Supplementary Draft went from Collingwood to St Kilda.

In return, Collingwood got Tarni White from St Kilda as well as both Grace Campbell and pick 15 from North Melbourne.

North Melbourne in return picked up Kate Shierlaw from the Saints.

Kodi Jacques

One trade that did not involve multiple way trades was that of former Tiger turned Bomber Kodi Jacques. The small forward was simply traded to Essendon in return for the Bombers’ second round selection in the upcoming Supplementary Draft (which is currently pick 27).

Mega Trade Number 2

The second mega trade of the 2023 Trade Period involved the Saints again, but this time it was Carlton and Richmond who were also involved.

St Kilda sent Caitlin Greiser to Richmond, the Blues sent Natalie Plane to St Kilda and Harriet Cordner got traded to Carlton. Richmond also sent its pick 14 to the Saints.

Maddy Brancatisano and Courtney Jones

In one of the simpler trades of the period, Richmond and Gold Coast swapped Maddy Brancatisano and Courtney Jones, with no picks needed to complete the trade.

Trade between Port and Geelong

The Power and Cats had a pretty simple trade, sending Kate Surman and pick 12 to the Cattery and Madeline Keryk to Alberton.

North and Hawthorn

The Kangaroos and Hawks also had a pretty simple trade, swapping Eliza Shannon and pick 40 for pick 33.
