2022 NAB AFLW National Championships - U18 Girls triple-header on Friday

The most talented footballers from across Australia will be in action at Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on Friday, as part of the 2022 NAB AFLW National Championships – U18 Girls.

The NAB AFLW National Championships are the highest level of state and territory representative football, as part of the AFL’s Talent Pathway Program, and have been taking place across the country over the past month.

Friday’s triple-header begins at 10am with a clash between Western Australia and the Allies, comprising players from Tasmania, Northern Territory, New South Wales and ACT.

The match will be followed by a battle between undefeated sides Victoria Metro and South Australia, who have both recorded big wins across their opening two matches of the Championships.

The final match of the day pits Queensland against Victoria Country, where both sides will be looking to register their first win of the competition.

Among the players set to feature in Friday’s triple-header are 2022 NAB League Girls best-and-fairest Amber Clarke (Victoria Country) and runner-up Charlotte Baskaran (Victoria Metro), along with fellow NAB AFLW Academy members Hannah Ewings (South Australia), Alana Gee (Queensland), Montana Ham (Victoria Metro), Claire Ransom (Allies) and Ella Roberts (Western Australia).

The Championships also provide a pathway for the game’s emerging coaches, with 16 women coaching in the competition. They include current AFLW player Sarah Perkins (Queensland) and past players Lauren Morecroft (Victoria Metro), Sally Riley (Victoria Country) and Georgia Walker (Allies).

The 2022 NAB AFLW National Championships – U18 Girls concludes on Saturday 30 April when Queensland hosts the Allies at Metricon Stadium.

The NAB Player of the Championships medal will be awarded to the competition's most outstanding performer following the final game, along with the announcement of the 2022 NAB AFLW National Championships – U18 Girls All-Australian team.

All matches will be live streamed free via womens.afl and the AFL Women's Official App, powered by Telstra.
