60 Girls Begin in the 2022 NAB League Season

The NAB League Girls season is underway for 2022 with an outstanding amount of current and former YJFL players involved.

Over 60 YJFL girls are playing in the NAB League this season, split between the Oakleigh Chargers, Northern Knights, Eastern Ranges and Calder Cannons.

The 2022 NAB League season will hold a 10-round season, with each team participating in nine matches. There are 13 partaking teams.

The first round started last weekend with Oakleigh (8.6-54) comfortably defeating Northern (4.4-28) and Eastern (5.8-38) getting the win over Calder (2.3-15).

The Oakleigh Chargers after coming off a premiership winning 2021 season has the most YJFL players with 33 out of their approximate 50 player list being former or current players. Oakleigh’s four girl leadership group includes Lexi McCulloch (Glen Iris & Kew Comets), Amelie Smith (Kew Rovers) and Jasmine Fleming (Ashburton).

In their first-round match nine players made their debuts for the club: Abbey Vicino (Ashburton), Amy Cariss-Brett (Kew Rovers), Allie, Carmenlia (Richmond), Emma Robbins (Camberwell), Ellie Brown (Kew Rovers), Kristen Smith (Kew Rovers), Sienna Tallariti (Whitehorse Colts) and Ruby Puls (Bulleen Templestowe).

The Northern Knights have an equally impressive 26 YJFL players within their squad for 2022. Their leadership group consists of Captain Jess Nursey (St Marys), Vice-Captains Tannah Hurst (Banyule) and Lulu Beatty (Northcote) and in the extended leadership group Ava Jordan (Banyule) and Isabella Caminiti (Heidelberg).

Making their debuts for the Knights in round one was Isabella Caminiti (Heidelberg), Isabella Parnell (Heidelberg) and Jessica Ryan (St Marys).

The Eastern Rangers host 3 YJFL players and were impressive in their first-round victory. Unfortunately, Jorja Livingstone (Park Orchards NRP) went down with a serious wrist injury in the final quarter, we wish her all the best with her recovery.

And finally, the Calder Cannons have two Brunswick players on their list for 2022.
