Ellie McKenzie receives Rising Star nomination

Exciting Richmond forward/midfielder Ellie McKenzie has been rewarded for a fantastic performance on Friday night by receiving a Round 5 NAB AFL Women’s Rising Star nomination.

McKenzie was electric all around the ground for the Tigers, gathering 16 disposals, five marks, and kicking a goal.

The 176cm power-athlete also showed her excellent running capacity with a strong run down the wing that included four bounces.

McKenzie, the number one selection in last year’s NAB AFL Women’s Draft, has been a consistent performer for the Tigers across the opening five rounds, averaging 13.8 disposals, 3.4 tackles, and three marks per game.

The 18-year-old becomes the first Richmond player to be nominated for the Rising Star award in the AFLW competition.
