Hawthorn has completed its inaugural AFLW playing list with an impressive haul of talent following the 2022 NAB AFLW Draft.

Jasmine Fleming was the first selection of the night at Pick 2 nationally, with the Hawks going on to select Mackenzie Eardley, Charlotte Baskaran, Bridie Hipwell, Lucy Wales, Emily Everist and Laura Elliott.

Fleming, an Oakleigh Chargers premiership player, dominated the 2022 NAB League Girls season with averages of 25.7 disposals, 4.8 tackles and 3.3 marks in just six games.

She then went on to make the NAB League Girls Team of the Year and AFLW U18 All Australian team while representing Vic Metro.

The AFLW Academy member has also represented Vic Metro in cricket, following in the footsteps of her father Damien, and has dabbled in netball, taking after her mother and former elite netballer Wendy O’Donnell.

Eardley averaged 14.1 disposals, four rebound 50s and 3.3 marks while co-captaining the Dandenong Stingrays, earning her selection in the NAB League Girls Team of the Year.

Her offensive nature means she has the ability to run off her defender and impact the contest, while also rolling up forward.

Hipwell plays across the midfield and forward line and boasts athleticism, versatility and ball-winning ability.

The versatile teenager averaged 13.5 disposals, five inside 50s and 3.2 marks in the NAB League Girls competition, which led to her being selected in the NAB League Girls Team of the Year.

Baskaran dominated the NAB League Girls competition this season, captaining the Western Jets to their first ever Grand Final win (male or female) while averaging 27.6 disposals, 6.6 tackles and 4.2 inside 50s.

The NAB AFLW Academy member has also represented Vic Metro on multiple occasions, averaging 16 disposals, 12 tackles and 3.3 clearances as well as making the under 18 All Australian team in her most recent campaign.

Hailing from a representative basketball background, Wales boasts impressive aerial ability and athleticism.

She will look to link up with the likes of Tegan Cunningham and Tamara Luke in the ruck department once she commences training.

Elliott is a Western Jets premiership player who made both the NAB League Girls Team of the Year and NAB AFLW under 18 All Australian team.

At NAB League level, the 17-year-old averaged 13.8 disposals, 4.7 rebounds 50s and 3.8 marks while her most impressive performance came in the Grand Final, surpassing 20 disposals for the first time in 2022 to go with 12 rebound 50s.

Hailing from a soccer background, Everist saw her game continue to evolve when she got the opportunity to suit up with Essendon.

The athletic defender boasts impressive endurance, having ranked fourth nationally in the AFLW combine 2km time trial.

Hawthorn AFLW List Manager Mitchell Cashion was thrilled with the result of Hawthorn’s first AFLW Draft.

“Coming into our inaugural AFLW draft with seven of the first 13 picks meant we were confident in our ability to select the best talent available,” Cashion said.

“To come out of the draft with some of the most exciting prospects in the country is a huge achievement for our entire Hawthorn community, who I’m sure will really enjoy watching these players develop their skills and craft over years to come.

“With our AFLW list now completed, we are ready to propel into the season and have exciting upside for the future ahead.”
