AFLW Draft: Ella Roberts, Luaren and Zoe Wakfer, Abbygail Bushby join Eagles, Madeleine Scanlon joins Dockers
Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the AFLW draft!
Join us from 5pm WA time ahead of the number one pick as we take you through all the action.
The AFLW draft is a little different to the men’s drafts. With the AFLW competition still part-time, it’s currently state-based, meaning players nominate which state they want to play in.
Four new AFLW clubs - Hawthorn, Essendon, Port Adelaide and Sydney - are also joining the competition this year. The quartet will dominate draft proceedings and held the first 13 selections between them.
Western Jets midfielder Montana Ham went at pick one to Sydney after turning her back on Victoria and nominating New South Wales.
The Eagles did not pull any surprises either, pouncing on Peel Thunder midfielder Ella Roberts with their first pick.
