AFLW TEAM NEWS | Bartlett to debut in Pride Game

Bartlett to debut BulldogsTV spoke to Kate Bartlett after she found out she will be debuting for the Bulldogs this weekend in AFLW Round 7.

Kate Bartlett will become the sixth player to debut for the Bulldogs’ AFLW team when she takes the field on Sunday against Carlton in Round 7.

The Bulldogs take on the Blues in the Pride Game at VU Whitten Oval this Sunday - the final home and away game for the 2019 season.

Bartlett follows in the footsteps of Eleanor Brown, Celine Moody, Aisling McCarthy and Selena Karlson to make her AFLW debut this season.

Belinda Smith, who crossed from Fremantle in the off-season, also pulled on the tri-colours for the first time in 2019.

BELONG TO THE WEST: SIGN UP AS A 2019 WESTERN BULLDOGS MEMBER

The 19-year-old was recruited from Peel Thunderbirds in Western Australia as the Bulldogs' third selection (pick 26 overall) in the 2018 NAB AFL Women's Draft.

She was one of the best-performed forwards in the NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships last year.

Bartlett has been named in the forward line for Sunday’s match, and is joined in the extended squad by defender Bailey Hunt.

The final 21 will be named at 4pm on Friday afternoon.

The Bulldogs went down by a solitary point last week against Melbourne at Marvel Stadium and are looking to snap a four-game losing streak.

The Pride Game will recognise and support the LBGTIQ community by celebrating inclusiveness, gender diversity, and welcoming all people, no matter their sexual orientation.
