AFLW Sign & Trade Wrap 2020

It has been an exciting couple of weeks with several RDK Clients finding a new home in the recent AFLW Sign & Trade Period.

After spending 4 years at Melbourne, Aliesha Newman has made the move across the road to Collingwood. Over 25 games, Aliesha kicked 11 goals in her time at the Demons. We can’t wait to see her in the Black and White for season 2021.

While up north, Suns player Taylor Smith was traded to the Brisbane Lions keeping her in the Sunshine State. Taylor played her first game in 2019 where she debuted in Round 6 against the West Coast Eagles. We look forward to the new season and what it brings for Taylor in just her second season of AFLW.

We are also pleased to have had Mikala Cann (Collingwood), Jordan Membrey (Collingwood), Kate Surman (Gold Coast), Ellie Hampson (Gold Coast), Amy McDonald (Geelong), Georgie Rankin (Geelong), Ellie Gavalas (North Melbourne), Cleo Saxon-Jones (Richmond) and Tarni White (St Kilda) all re-signed with their respective clubs for the upcoming season.

Shannon Campbell (Brisbane Lions), Bre Koenen (Brisbane Lions), Jamie Stanton (Gold Coast) and Rebecca Beeson (GWS Giants) have all been able to extend their time with their club, contracting them till the end of the 2022 AFLW Season.

Sally Riley, Maddie Shevlin & Sam Virgo will all continue in 2021 as they had signed prior to Sign & Trade Period this year.

We can’t wait to see all RDK AFLW Clients back out in action for the 2021 Season!
