Eastern Ranges talent takes to AFLW

By Jed Lanyon

Two Eastern Ranges players have made their way onto AFLW lists after having their names called out on AFLW Draft night on Tuesday 6 October.

As reported last week, Collingwood selected Tarni Brown as the club’s first father-daughter selection at pick 19, while Mietta Kendall was chosen by Melbourne at pick 41.

Kendall is an all-round sports talent having represented Victoria in hockey for six years as well as being a black belt in karate.

Kendall highlights hockey as giving her the ability to read the play, while a background in karate provides her with strength as a defender.

Kendall is a skillful halfback who attacks the contest with ferocity and averaged 12.5 disposals, 2 tackles and 2.5 rebound 50s in this year’s Under 18s NAB League Girls competition.

The AFL Draft is slated to take place on Monday 7 December, with the AFL Rookie Draft yet to have a confirmed date.
