Tahlia Randall

29 May 1998
Key Forward

One of the great aerial players in the competition, Tahlia Randall has made a habit of playing the game in the air.

That being said, her booming kick and ferocity in the tackle make her a nightmare for opposition players to come up against anywhere on the field. A defender turned forward, Randall possesses all the attributes to be a success at either end of the ground, and her work ethic and desire to put in for the team make her an important displayer of many of the club’s Shinboner values. Providing an exceptionally strong marking target inside 50, Randall flies at the ball with a vigour and brashness rarely seen in AFLW. Her relentless physicality allowed her smaller teammates first use of the ball when she didn't clunk the mark. Her defensive instincts shone through in 2022, with the tackling pressure she provides as a key forward not often found in traditional goalkickers. A booming kick, Randall also showed some poise and finesse to be nominated for Goal of the Year in Round 10. In the qualifying final against Fremantle she became the first Kangaroo to reach 50 AFLW games, and her season was capped off with a deserved Mark of the Year win for her grab against GWS in Round 3.
