Hawthorn has enhanced its 2022 NAB AFLW Draft hand by completing a pick swap with Richmond.

This will see the Hawks receive pick No. 9 while the Tigers will receive picks No.16 and 18 in the Victorian draft pool.

Hawthorn now has six of the first 11 picks in the Victorian portion of the draft, which AFLW List Manager Mitchell Cashion was pleased about.

“This pick swap is a great result for us as it allows us to recruit even more of Victoria’s top-tier players that will enable us to lay the foundation of our AFLW squad," Cashion said.

“We will continue to explore further opportunities during the AFLW Sign & Trade Period which will enable us to strengthen our draft hand.”
