Sandringham Dragons defender Sarah Hartwig has arrived at the Western Bulldogs with selection 11 in the 2020 NAB AFL Women’s Draft.

The 173cm NAB AFLW Academy member is known for her athleticism, intercept marking and rebounding ability from defence.

Hartwig represented Vic Metro in 2019, and was in fine form at the beginning of this year’s NAB League for the Dragons, where she averaged 15 disposals and five tackles in three games, before the season was postponed indefinitely.

“Sarah’s ability to read the ball in the air and intercept mark is elite,” said Bulldogs’ AFLW Head of List Management & Recruiting, Mick Sandry.

“She is an athletic defender who likes to run and break the lines, not only proving to be strong in her defensive actions but also in her ability to turn defence into attack.

“Sarah has a high work rate and is highly competitive.  We’re very excited about what she will be able to add to our team.”

One of Hartwig’s Sandringham Dragons team-mates is Alice Burke, the daughter of Bulldogs’ coach Nathan Burke, who was pre-selected as a father-daughter pick by the Saints in the 2020 AFL Women’s Draft.

AFL Media journalist Sarah Black describes Hartwig as “a clean defender who reads the play really well and is strong overhead.”

“She's composed in high-pressure situations and makes good decisions when clearing the play.

“Hartwig is experienced, having played football from a young age, and has got the ability to push further up the ground if needed.”
