Jolyn Collins headlines Women’s National Draft

Jolyn Collins is likely to be one of the top picks at the inaugural Women’s Premiership national draft on Wednesday, February 3rd.

Jolyn is a pioneer for Women’s AFL in NZ being the first New Zealander to play in the Australian Youth Girls Championships where she represented Tasmania in 2016.

Collins was the Co-Captain for the NZ Kahu during the 2017 New Zealand Youth Girls campaign in Wellington and has terrific leadership skills.

More recently, Collins won the inaugural Auckland AFL Women’s competition with the Norwest Magpies in December last year.

The Women’s Premiership will take place in conjunction with the current Men’s Premiership and will take place over 3 weekends between February and April.

The competition will provide the perfect environment for girls transitioning from the Youth programme and local league formats to senior football with higher numbers involved.  The Women’s Premiership will feature Women from Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington and Dunedin. It is the next step in finalising the pathway for women to participate in AFL within New Zealand.
