Five local girls have featured for the Murray Bushrangers in their Futures Game against Sandringham Dragons at Wangaratta.
Played as a curtain raiser to the TAC Cup Youth Girls clash, the five girls showed they have plenty of talent.
Elise Freeman, Molly Burke, Ella Jones, Tayla Sampson and Sarah Ryan all played significant game time to display attributes required to play at TAC Cup level. Freeman and Burke are members of the TAC squad in 2018 and further strengthened their claims for selection in the TAC Cup competition.
The Futures game enables players who were not originally in the TAC Cup squad to play against quality opposition in actual games. Played in warm conditions on Saturday at the Wangaratta Showgrounds, the girls played in a close loss to Sandringham.
