Fremantle young guns Mim Strom and Orlagh Lally have been named in the AFLPA's 22under22 squad after taking impressive strides this season.
Strom receives her third consecutive nomination in the squad, while Lally makes her first appearance, making the pair eligible to be named in the AFLPA’s final 22under22 team.
Standing tall at 6’3”, Strom has continued to go from strength-to-strength in her ruck craft, ending the season with a career-high 41 hit-outs in Freo's Round 10 clash against Sydney.
22-year-old Strom has now played 49 games for Fremantle in the AFLW, and was also the youngest player to reach the 25-game milestone in the league.
Lally has proved a force to be reckoned with in her second year playing AFLW, averaging over 10 disposals per game, and booting four goals throughout the 2023 NAB AFLW season.
The Irish recruit had her career-best performance against St Kilda in Round 8 of 2023, with an impressive 19 disposals for the match.
For a player to be eligible for the squad of 44, they are required to play 50 per cent of the home and away season, equating to five matches in Season 8.
Fans now have the opportunity to decide the final 22 by voting on the 22Under22 platform.
Voting is open for seven days from Thursday 9 November to Wednesday 15 November with the final team to be announced on 22 November via the AFL Players’ Association’s social media channels.
