The order of next week’s NAB AFL Women’s Draft has been finalised, now with the compensation of injured and unavailable players to be taken into consideration.
The draft will be held at Marvel Stadium next Tuesday October 23rd and will see 70 selections of women players be drafted to the 10 AFLW teams.
Carlton have received pick No.42 for compensation for Sophie Li who had to move back to Adelaide due to work commitments.
The Adelaide Crows have been given selection 53 as compensation for Jess Allan, who is unavailable due to commitments with the army, and Ruth Wallace who is going through family issues.
Abbie McKay will be the competitions first father-daughter selection with Carlton officially giving their pick 16 to the midfielder.
The Magpies were also given permission to make two pre-draft selections as the club lost a large number and experienced players, along with Chloe Molloy missing the entire upcoming season through a foot injury.
Collingwood VFLW duo Sophie Alexander (pick 29) and Erica Fowler (pick 70) were last Friday pre-selected to the Pies team.
Each team is allowed to sign 28 primary listed players, as well as two cross-code rookies, as the rookies are already locked in.
Clubs will again be allowed to give up their final picks in order to sign a interstate player as a free agent, just like last season with Western Bulldogs signing West Australian Rachel Ashley.
