The North Melbourne Kangaroos have selected Tess Craven with pick 13 in the 2021 NAB AFLW Draft.

Recruited from the Geelong Falcons, Craven is a tough midfielder with clean skills under pressure.

North AFLW/VFLW List & Football Performance Manager, Rhys Harwood, said the club was thrilled to add a player of Craven’s quality.

“We’re so excited to add Tess to our list after excelling for both Geelong and Vic Country this year,” Harwood said.

“A midfielder with great balance, she averaged more than 21 disposals per game. She is great around stoppages and her capacity to spread and find the footy post-clearance is elite.

“We felt she was a standout player in the draft pool in regards to her footy IQ. She makes great decisions in play and uses the ball well.

“We are exceptionally excited to add Tess to our list, we think she’s going to be a good player for a long time.”
