West Coast Eagles


Tayla Bresland

04 February 1996

West Coast brokered a three-way deal with Fremantle and North Melbourne that saw the club secure Bresland in exchange for its fourth-round selection (pick No.46) in the 2020 AFLW Draft.

Bresland arrived at West Coast following four productive seasons in the AFLW with Fremantle. She has played 22 games at the highest level and was a mainstay of the Dockers' backline in 2017 and 2019, often taking the opposition's most dangerous forward. She was unable to break into Fremantle's starting 22 in 2020 following an interrupted pre-season due to work commitments, but the Peel Thunder product is motivated to hit the ground running in 2022 after slotting into a West Coast defensive unit in 2021 that boasts a healthy mix of youth and experience.
