2023 AFLW Draft review: St Kilda

ST KILDA was able to have a relatively quiet AFL Women’s Draft, having committed to a father-daughter prospect pre-draft and heading in with one other selection, a top 10 pick. With the latter, the Saints opted for Western Jets skipper Kiera Whiley with Pick 10, before selecting Geelong VFLW midfielder Charlotte Simpson, an over-age onballer […]

2023 AFLW Draft review: Richmond

RICHMOND opted to just take two picks into the 2023 AFL Women’s Draft, but showed the Tigers had a need for speed. With their first round selection, the Tigers pounced on draft bolter Isabel Bacon at Pick 13, with the Sandringham Dragons defender and midfielder heading to Punt Road. With their only other selection, the […]

2023 AFLW Draft review: Port Adelaide

PORT Adelaide did the bulk of its work outside the AFL Women’s Draft with its pre-listed players, but still recruited two talented young stars to add to its 2024 list. The Power had already stacked their list with talent after pre-signing Lauren Young, Shineah Goody and Molly Brooksby, but were able to add another couple […]

2023 AFLW Draft review: North Melbourne

THOUGH they only made two “live” selections in the AFL Women’s Draft – re-listing Lucy Burke with their third one – the Kangaroos made a splash with a couple of exciting, versatile midfielders. North Melbourne picked up Ella Slocombe with Pick 26 and then Georgia Stubs with 30 in a couple of coups given there […]

2023 AFLW Draft review: Melbourne

FOR a contending team, Season 7 premiers Melbourne certainly hit the off-season hard, looking to turnaround a finals series where the Demons came up short. Able to position itself high up in the draft after moving on a number of players, Melbourne snagged the best small in the draft in Alyssia Pisano with Pick 5, […]

2023 AFLW Draft review: Hawthorn

SNAGGING a couple of Dandenong Stingrays who drifted, the Hawks will be pretty thrilled with the pair of players they picked up in the draft to complement their trio of Eastern Ranges and Demons duo. After selecting Laura Stone, Jess Vukic and Hayley McLaughlin as pre-listings prior to the draft, the Hawks traded back in […]

2023 AFLW Draft review: GWS

GWS Giants looked outside the state of New South Wales to select their two players in the 2023 AFL Women’s Draft, instead opting for a West Australian and a Victorian. With Pick 3, the Giants locked away Peel Thunder midfielder Kaitlyn Srhoj, before only utilising one more selection at Pick 40 to add strong inside […]

2023 AFLW Draft review: Gold Coast

GOLD Coast was one of the more active teams on AFL Women’s Draft night, picking up five players including three locals. Despite having a strong Academy, the Suns managed to snag both Kiara Bischa and Sienna McMullen on the cheap at Picks 50 and 51 respectively, as well as club-tied Territory talent Annabel Kievit with […]

Pumped Pisano keen to get started at Dees

SPEAKING the morning after the AFLW Draft, new Dee Alyssia Pisano admitted that it was still all sinking in that she had been drafted at all. “Not really if I’m being honest,” she said. “It still feels like a dream. I didn’t really sleep last night if I’m being honest, I’m just so excited but […]
