Launceston teammates Mia King and Camilla Taylor head up a strong Tasmanian women's football contingent on the national stage - again.
For the second year in a row, the Blues TSLW pair are among seven state players named in the Eastern Allies squad at the under-18 AFLW championships next month.
They are set to join Charlie Lovell (Glenorchy), Priscilla Odwogo (Tigers), Jemma Webster (Glenorchy), Amy Prokopiec (Clarence) and Killarney Morey (NZ - Kahu) in the combined squad that include players from New South Wales and the ACT.
North Launceston's Ella Maurer is also one of two emergencies for their three matches on the Gold Coast.
The Tasmanians all impressed in their recent two interstate games in Sydney.
AFL Tasmania female talent manager Leigh Elder believed the selection of this Tasmanian group is a strong endorsement for the state's female talent pathway.
"It is fantastic to see these girls selected to represent the Eastern Allies," Elder said.
"The opportunity for our girls to work alongside the best of NSW and ACT, and compete against the best underage talent in the country is a significant one.
"Female football is growing each and every year and we only hope to see the number of Tasmanian girls selected in the Eastern Allies grow moving forward."
Devils coach Trent Bartlett added the Tasmanians were deserving of the opportunity.
"Through strong NAB League and under-18 AFLW championships performances, these girls have all shown that they have what it takes to compete at a high level," the ex-Deloraine junior said.
