2022 AFLW Draft team review: Western Bulldogs

AFTER losing a number of players to other AFL Women’s sides, the Western Bulldogs added four new faces through the 2022 AFL Women’s Draft to add to those couple of experienced players through the Trade Period. The Western Bulldogs welcomed talented youngsters Millie Brown (Geelong) and Daisy Bateman (North Melbourne) for either end of the […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: West Coast

REIGNING wooden spooners West Coast was handed an extra priority pick and then traded its way to a strong draft position where they took seven of the first eight West Australian AFLW Draft selections in a bid to move back up the AFL Women’s ladder. The Eagles picked a mix of top-agers with a couple […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: Sydney

ONE of the most highly talked about newcomers to the AFL Women’s for Season 7 was Sydney, with the Swans already topping the AFLW membership before a player had been signed. Those passionate supporters were rewarded at the 2022 AFLW Draft, when they managed to convince two top 10 Victorian prospects to nominate NSW-ACT. The […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: St Kilda

FINISHING 13th overall in the AFL Women’s and last among the Victorian sides, St Kilda unfortunately had to wait until the 16th pick in the 2022 AFLW Draft due to expansion sides. The Saints, who dearly missed the dominant young duo of Georgia Patrikios and Tyanna Smith last season, will look to try and build […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: Port Adelaide

ENTERING the competition fresh in Season 7, Port Adelaide has built a damaging list, particularly forward of centre, and the Power strengthened that in the 2022 AFL Women’s Draft. Port Adelaide joined reigning premiers Adelaide in the South Australian draft pool for the first time, and had an array of selections they used to pick […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: North Melbourne

AFTER another so close, yet so far season of making the AFL Women’s finals but not getting to the last game of the year, North Melbourne headed back to the draft with five selections. In the 2022 AFLW Draft, the Roos were able to scoop up a couple of talls, and some high-upside, skilful smalls. […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: Melbourne

AFTER falling one win short of an AFL Women’s premiership, grand finalists Melbourne headed into the off-season looking to maintain their place in the premiership race. The Demons lost a chunk of their depth, but also picked up some readymade replacements for another assault on the AFLW flag. Melbourne was always going to end up […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: Hawthorn

ONE of two new expansion sides in the Victorian pool, Hawthorn took a different approach to Essendon’s list building process ahead of Season 7. While the Bombers stacked the list with readymade talent and some serious best-available stars, the Hawks went about assembling a side that Bec Goddard can play within the structures and game […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: GWS

HEADING into the 2022 AFL Women’s Trade and Off-Season Period, GWS GIANTS had one of the toughest jobs to overcome ahead of the AFLW Draft. With their new neighbours Sydney Swans having the first five selections in the draft – that the expansion club could not pick – it effectively meant the GIANTS would have […]

2022 AFLW Draft team review: Gold Coast

THERE were no real surprises when it came to AFL Women’s Draft night for the Gold Coast, who picked up the three players that were expected pre-draft, and then passed for an experienced selection with the fourth pick. The Suns showed great improvement under new coach Cam Joyce in season 2022, and will be looking […]
