5 more AFLW players we want to see in a Matildas jersey

1. ERIN PHILLIPS

Born: 19 May 1985 (age 34)

Height: 173 cm (5 ft 8 in)

Weight: 77 kg (170 lb)

Career Highlight (two of about 30): 2 x AFLW Players’ Most Valuable Player Award (2017, 2019)

For those of you who don’t follow AFLW, Jenna McCormick’s captain and Premiership winning teammate is truly the big cahuna. If we can somehow nab her, we’re laughing.

She’s already a bloody successful code-hopper as well, representing the Opals and playing in the world’s best basketball league, the WNBA.

She actually assistant coaches the Dallas Wings over in Texas, but we’re sure we could find an NWSL club for her if she misses the South.

All this makes her incredibly quick and athletic, with an amazing spring in her jump that could see her rival Sam Kerr for headers. But she’s also damn tough and if there’s one thing McCormick’s shown, a bit of bite in the backline is exactly what we need.
