Kiwis in the AFL: North Melbourne superstar named All Australian for the second time
01 May, 2020
Jasmine Garner is leading by example at her second club with standout performances.
Garner will go down in history as not only one of the top players in the league, but the first person to kick a goal in AFLW when she kicked the opening goal of the very first game for her former club, Collingwood in 2017. The All Australian has excellent foot and hand skills, as well as great goal sense with 23 goals in her still young AFLW career.
She was drafted to the Collingwood Football Club with pick 86 in the first draft back in 2016. She dominated for the struggling Magpies, finishing second in the clubs Best and Fairest award, before making the move to the North Melbourne Kangaroos as an expansion player.
She was named as an All Australian in 2019 and 2020 after an unbelievable two seasons with her new club after spending more time in the midfield.
The number 25 still has a lot of footy ahead of her and will continue to leave a mark on the game. She will go down as one of the most consistent players to ever play the game and will continue to inspire young Boys and Girls to aim high and work hard to improve their fitness, skills, and leadership.
