Karl Worner | Rookie Draft highlights

Check out some of the best highlights from this hard-working wingman from the Oakleigh Chargers. Freo's pick no.8 in the NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

Published ago

In the NAB League he averaged 17.7 disposals, 4.7 marks and 4.2 tackles a game, but probably his best match was for Vic Metro in an Under 19 state trial against Vic Country (game-high 30 disposals and 15 marks).

He's unselfish and plays the wing role well, covering the outlets and working just as hard defensively as he does offensively. Karl is a good size at 188cm and is also very strong overhead.
