AFL New Zealand Kahu squad members Jaimee Wyatt and Killarney Morey have landed in Melbourne as they prepare to represent Tasmania in the NAB League (Former TAC Cup) competition this weekend.
AFL Female Football development Manager Jan Cooper came up with the idea four year’s ago when she wanted to increase the development of young females playing AFL in New Zealand.
The pair have both represented Tasmania in the past with Killarney travelling over in 2017 before Jaimee made her debut 12 months ago.
With more experience under their belt’s, Morey and Wyatt will look to make an impact during the campaign 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.
The squad will come together on Friday with their first match against the Western Jets on Friday, April 26th at 6.00PM (AEST) at Ram’s Arena in Melbourne’s north.
They then have a rest day before facing Eastern Ranges on Sunday April 28th at 11.00AM (AEST) at the same venue.
