Kahu duo set to swoop on AFLW National Champs

30 May, 2019

New Zealand Kahu, Jaimee Wyatt and Killarney Morey will travel to Sydney tomorrow morning to represent Tasmania at the 2019 AFL Women’s U18 National Championships.

 

The pair were selected on their performance when they played for Tasmania in the NAB League (Formerly TAC Cup) in April where they were both among the team’s best.

The 2019 NAB AFLW Under 18 Championships will commence on Friday, May 31 and will conclude on Friday, July 12.

Tasmanian coach Trent Bartlett said the squad is full of talent.

“The group has shown great promise across three NAB League Girls Exhibition Matches.”

“These games have been terrific preparation for the Under 18 Championships, particularly as it has allowed the group to travel, prepare and play as a team,” he said.

The Championships will be played in two rounds. After the first round, the Central Allies (NSW/ACT & Tasmania) and Eastern (South Australia and Tasmania) Allies teams will be selected.

After coming away from Melbourne with more experience, Morey and Wyatt will look to make an impact during the championship where there will be AFLW scouts on hand to view the girls.

Jaimee Wyatt has emerged as one of the best Female players in the country after continuing to develop her game over the past four seasons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 2019 AFL New Zealand Female Player of the Year is excited about returning to play for Tasmania and will relish the opportunity to play with the next generation of AFLW players.

Killarney is one of the top female players in the country and knows how to take control of the game. A strong runner with great skills, Morey has high hopes of playing AFLW in the future.
