Collingwood will enter the 2020 NAB AFL Women's Draft with five selections as the event is held virtually on Tuesday night. 

The club has already used one selection to confirm their first ever father-daugther pick, Tarni Brown (daughter of Collingwood legend, Gavin).

How will talent be selected?

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, scouts have had to look for talent in different ways this year.

The NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships were reworked into state NAB AFLW All Star matches, with one game taking place in Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, games were unable to be played in Victoria and NSW.

There were three rounds of the NAB League Girls played at the start of the year, but besides that, clubs are relying on information they have gleaned from last year, as well as conversations with players' coaches.

Like the championships, the NAB AFLW Draft Combine has been altered this year to a state-based affair. Victoria has not been able to hold testing, but players have been asked to record a 2km time trial through the Strava app. Interviews between clubs and draft hopefuls have been conducted via video calls.
