The wonderful debut seasons of Saints young guns, Georgia Patrikios, and Caitlin Greiser have been recognised with their selection in the AFLW 22under22 team for 2020. While it may not have come as a surprise, given they both earned Rising Star nominations during the season and Greiser was the competition’s leading goal-kicker, it is no less an honour for the talented pair.
Greiser, who is also expected to earn All-Australian Selection when that team is selected this month, led the competition in goals and led the Saints in score involvements inside forward fifty. For Patrikios, the Saints first pick in the 2019 draft, her 2020 season more than lived up to some pretty lofty expectations. From her first game where she announced herself in an 18-disposal best-on-ground performance she was consistently one of the Saints best throughout the 2020 campaign.
