Lauren Wakfer

Height
180cm
DOB
23 April 2004
Position
Ruck

A talented ruck, Lauren Wakfer is a state-bred talent with the ability to present as a fourth midfielder.

Her capacity to win the ball at stoppages and dispose cleanly made her one of the most exciting tall players in this year's AFLW Draft. Covering plenty of ground and filling the stats sheet, Wakfer has been the top performing ruck in the West Australian draft pool. Working hard defensively and presenting well up forward helps the 17-year-old take advantage of less mobile rucks with athleticism and an impressive vertical leap. Unfortunately, Wakfer’s debut season with the Eagles will be spent in rehab after a knee reconstruction.
