Launceston talent in the women’s game has been recognised leading into the next AFLW draft combine.
Blues teammates Daria Bannister, Courtney Webb and Georgia Hill have been invited to Etihad Stadium on October 3-4 to assess fitness and skills for the AFLW draft two weeks later.
Tigers star Loveth Ochayi is the fourth Tasmanian from 47 players identified across Australia for the combine.
Acting AFL Football Operations Manager Andrew Dillon said female players being invited to the draft combine is another first for women’s football.
“This is the first-time female players will attend a draft combine and this is the final piece of the AFL Women’s Rising Stars program,” he said.
“All eight AFLW clubs will be in attendance and will have the opportunity to interview players ahead of the NAB AFL Women’s Draft.”
