Tigers Talent Spread Across the Country!

The Tigers 2020 AFL Canberra 1st Grade Men's Premiership and 1st Grade Women's Grand Final squads certainly had some outstanding young talent.

Over the summer months there were players who moved on from the Tigers line-up and are now playing at elite levels and or have stayed local and played in Academy and VFLW games.

As we prepare for tonight's AFLW Draft for the 2022 season, we take a look at how our next level of tigers talent are progressing in season 2021!

Lexi Hamilton

It's been a big year for Lexi with the former 2020 Gold Coast Suns AFLW player pushing hard for another chance in the top flight.

She has spent the first half of 2021 with North Melbourne in the VFLW and what a season she had, playing ruck Lexi dominated the role and was named in the best 10 times out of 12 games as well as kicking 6 goals.

Since her return to the Tigers, the 2019 Premiership player has continued her strong form and is one of the leading players for the Tigers.

We hope that Lexi is again on the minds of recruiters and wish her all the best tonight.

Close to being best on ground in the 2020 premiership team, Harry Grant moved across to the strong South Australian National Football League (SANFL) playing for Central Districts.

The Bulldogs have won just three matches for the season, but Harry has played in all 14 competition games.

Matt Vardanega

also joined a SANFL Club. Norwood Football Club chased Matty over the past few years as he sharpened his skills in the NEAFL, then as a key defender in the Tigers 2020 premiership team.

He joined the Red Legs with the knowledge his father Glenn had played at the club and was keen to follow in his footsteps. He has played 3 senior games this year in a team that has won 8 matches from the 14 competition games played.

Other notable absences from the Tigers 2021 line up are

Kel Evans and Sam Frost.
