Saints, Bulldogs sign final players for 2020 season

THE FINAL two players have been signed ahead of the 2020 NAB AFLW season, with St Kilda adding forward Nadia von Bertouch and the Western Bulldogs signing young midfielder Hannah Munyard (pictured above).

Both the Saints and the Bulldogs decided to pass on their final selections during Tuesday's draft, allowing them to add one player apiece as a free agent.

Both von Bertouch and Munyard hail from South Australia and were able to be offered contracts by the Victorian clubs as they were passed over in the draft.

Saints' acquisition von Bertouch, 24, was a co-captain of North Adelaide in this year's SANFLW competition, playing up forward and on the ball. She was named captain of the team of the year.

Munyard joins the Dogs as a hard-running midfielder who can play on the inside and outside of packs. 

The 18-year-old was invited to this year's NAB AFLW Combine, and her strong SANFLW season with South Adelaide was rewarded with a spot on the wing in the team of the year. She represented South Australia and Central Allies at this year’s NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships. 

Munyard's selection means all eight of the Bulldogs' draftees/free agents are just 18 years old, a rarity in the fledgling AFLW competition where older players are often signed.

AFLW club lists will be finalised on Thursday, October 31.
