Collingwood has strengthened its position in the upcoming AFLW Draft through a pick swap with Richmond. 

The Pies have acquired pick 9 in exchange for picks 11 and 29 which were given to the Tigers. 

Collingwood now has picks 8, 9, 48 and 68 in the 2023 NAB AFLW Draft. 

“With today’s trade we have acquired a higher selection in this year’s draft,” Collingwood’s Head of Women’s Football Jess Burger said.

“As we approach the draft, we’ve had a focus on improving our top-end selections and wanted to be best positioned to access the young talent available. We now have two opportunities to secure talent within the first top-10 selections – this being the first opportunity since 2018. 

“Through today’s pick swap, we’re placed in a strong position for success at the upcoming draft.”

The Draft will be held on Monday, December 18.
