Queenslanders named in national Woomeras and Medleys teams to face off in June

Six girls from Queensland have been named in national squads representing the best Indigenous and multicultural talent.

Players from across the country will come together to form the Indigenous side, the Woomeras, and the multicultural team, the Medleys. The teams will face off in a match in Melbourne on 5 June.

Three Queensland players have been selected for the U16 Woomeras, and three have been selected for the U16 Medleys.

Peter Yagmoor, AFL Queensland Diversity Coordinator – Indigenous, said: “It’s fantastic to see Alexa, Heidi and Hilda, all who hail from Far North Queensland, earn selection in this team and get the opportunity to join an elite talent pathway.

“There’s no doubt programs like this will further improve their abilities on the field and off it.”

Selection in the Woomeras and Medleys also sees the players gain access to a national online mentoring program to improve their leadership and footy skills, which will take place from now until December.

Abdullah Haddad, AFL Queensland Diversity Coordinator – Multicultural, said: “The three girls selected; Zimra, Fanolele and Precious have been working incredibly hard and been playing consistent, high-end football to gain selection into the Medleys team. 

“We have full confidence in their abilities to demonstrate their talents early next month.”

Congratulations to the following Queensland players and their community clubs on their selection:



Alexa Dorner-Graham (North Cairns Tigers)

Hilda Kellermeier (Cape York Eagles)

Heidi Talbot (North Cairns Tigers)
