Gold Coast SUNS Academy players Alana Gee and Fleur Davies have been named in the NAB AFLW Academy squad for the upcoming match against an Under-23 All Stars team.
The AFL today released the squads for the representative match which will take place on Sunday May 8.
Gee was a standout in the recent NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships, claiming the Queensland MVP Award after averaging 24 disposals, three tackles and four clearances per game.
Fleur Davies, who is the younger sister of SUNS AFLW player Giselle, is a versatile ruck/forward who averaged 10 hitouts and three tackles per game in the Under-18 Championships.
The 2022 intake of the NAB AFLW Academy was selected in December last year and comprises a selection of the best footballers across the country who will be eligible for the 2022 NAB AFL Women's Draft.
The players have since participated in an accelerated Australian Football and personal development program, established to best prepare them for elite competitions.
A high-performance training camp was held in April, ahead of this weekend’s match.
The Under-23 All Stars team comprises players from Victoria, Northern Territory and Tasmania, who were selected based on nominations from AFLW clubs.
Former Gold Coast SUNS AFLW player and current GWV Rebels assistant coach Sally Riley will serve on the coaching panel for the Under-23 All Stars.
