Mature-age prospects steal the show at WA Combine


TWO MATURE-AGE potential draftees pushed their case for selection in Tuesday's NAB AFLW Draft with dominant performances at Western Australia's NAB AFLW Draft Combine.

Claremont's Jess Low and East Fremantle's Julie-Anne Norrish dominated proceedings earlier this week, which was held over two days in Perth.

Norrish, a 23-year-old defender, equalled Jess Allan's vertical jump record of 61cm and set the fastest 20m sprint time this year of 3.167 seconds.

Having only started playing footy in the amateurs competition once she left school, Low has quickly risen through the ranks and has now played two WAFLW seasons as a defender and occasional midfielder.
