AFLW signing: Tayla Roberts

The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos have further bolstered the club’s existing star-studded line-up.

Tayla Roberts (Open-Age Signing)
191cm - Ruck

Hailing from Launceston, Roberts looks to be a valuable cross-code rookie, primed for a ruck role.

Currently representing the Dandenong Ranges in the Women’s National Baskeball League, the 191cm athlete will be one of the tallest players in the competition.

“During Tayla’s trial she demonstrated some terrific qualities, as well as tactical skills that we think will see her develop into a genuine ruck,” AFLW List Manager Rhys Harwood said. 

“Tayla’s height and strength will certainly make her a very tough opponent to play against.

“Her experience as an elite athlete will bring significant off-field strengths to our club and will ensure she gets the most out of herself as she adapts to a new sport.”
