Three Lady Legs have been given their chance at AFLW after the conclusion of today’s National Draft.
Gun midfielder Hannah Dunn was the first Lady Legs to have her name called, as the Gold Coast Suns snapped up the Queanbeyan junior with pick 22 in the national draft.
A contested animal, known for her attack on the football and penetrating kick, Dunn was a member of the SANFLW Team of the year, while finishing third in the SANFLW Best and Fairest.
The 28-year old enjoyed a fine first year at the Parade, averaging 21 disposals three clearances and four tackles per game.
Next cab off the rank was SANFLW and Norwood Best and Fairest winner Najwa Allen, after being called at pick 37 by the Crows.
Allen was a class act in 2019, culminating in a maiden SANFLW Best and Fairest in her first year participating in South Australia. Allen took out the Norwood FC Best and Fairest and was also awarded a spot in the 2019 Advertiser Team of the Year.
The 25-year-old was a match-winner for the Legs and averaged 25.4 disposals, three clearances and three inside-50s for 2019.
The ever-reliable Hannah Priest was rewarded for an outstanding season also after her name was called out with 41 to St Kilda.
A hard-working player, Priest’s ability to impact the contest and read the ball saw her voted as the player of the week in Round four after amassing 22 possessions in the Redlegs’ 28-point win against Woodville-West Torrens.
Priest went at 75% efficiency in the 12 games she played, making her a reliable pick-up for the St-Kilda Football Club.
Former Redleg Ebony O’Dea will reunite with former Coach Steve Symonds after she was drafted to Collingwood with pick 89.
O’Dea, spent a year on the Giants list in 2019 and will look to shine for Magpies in 2020.
