2019 AFLW Draft: What they said

We spoke to a range of Victorian players selected in the recent NAB AFL Women’s Draft as well as several NAB League clubs to get their thoughts on the AFLW journey ahead.

AFL DRAFT WATCH: Riley Baldi

Injury and illness at the Gippsland Power drove Riley Baldi to develop his leadership skills in ways he hadn’t expected to this year.

AFL DRAFT WATCH: Mitch O’Neill

Tasmania Devils midfielder Mitch O’Neill this year became one of only three players selected in the last two NAB AFL Under-18 All Australian teams, but his latest season proved much more challenging than 2018.

2020 AFLW Academy announced

The 2020 NAB AFL Women’s Academy squads have been announced, with 31 NAB League players included among the 52 total academy members.

Newton ends junior career as top Dog

The Western Bulldogs capped Gabrielle Newton’s decorated junior football career by selecting the Northern Knights premiership captain with the top pick in the recent NAB AFL Women’s Draft.

AFL DRAFT WATCH: Sam De Koning

Sam De Koning has witnessed the evolution of key-position players in recent years and made it one of his primary goals in 2019 to develop into a ‘swingman’ at the Dandenong Stingrays.

AFL DRAFT WATCH: Sam Philp

Sam Philp’s omission from the 2019 Vic Metro squad only drove him to new heights at NAB League level for the Northern Knights this year.

AFL DRAFT WATCH: Jay Rantall

Habits developed while representing Australia in basketball allowed Jay Rantall to transition seamlessly into the NAB League with the GWV Rebels this season.

AFL DRAFT WATCH: Emerson Jeka

When Western Jets key-position player Emerson Jeka felt he needed to spark some life into an up-and-down 2019 season, he went to his head coach Ryan O’Keefe and asked for a change.

AFL DRAFT WATCH: Cooper Stephens

A broken leg suffered in Round 3 of the NAB League Boys season wasn’t going to stop Geelong Falcons midfielder Cooper Stephens from pushing his case for selection in the 2019 NAB AFL Draft.
