Tahlita Buethke backed up her consistent 2022 season with an ultra-strong year at Norwood in her first season at the Redlegs since crossing from South Adelaide. Boasting a balance of speed and endurance, Buethke spent more time roaming around the ground rather than being a pure first possession winner, and it helped her impact more consistently. Her run and carry in particular stands out, and she won the Norwood best and fairest while making the SANFLW Team of the Year.

Continued work on tidying up her kicking is the next step, along with a greater scoreboard influence, having kicked just the three goals in 13 SANFL Women's games. Still only 21 as of January, Buethke has developed quickly over the last few years and has transformed into one of the more damaging midfielders at state level.

That speed-endurance mix that clubs look for really stands out with Buethke, particularly given she can slot in as a hard-running winger, or a tough inside midfielder with her physicality and toughness coming to the fore. Her development over the last couple of years has been noticeable and she has closed the gap between her best and worst performances leaving her as a draftable option for AFLW clubs.
