Western Bulldogs midfielder Hannah Munyard will return home to South Australia after a year in Melbourne.

Adelaide secured the 19-year-old, along with Pick 45, in a three-team deal that also involved Collingwood.

In full, the trade went as follows:

  • Adelaide acquire Munyard from the Western Bulldogs and Pick 45 from Collingwood
  • Collingwood acquire Pick 33 from the Western Bulldogs
  • Western Bulldogs acquire Pick 25 from Adelaide and Katie Lynch from Collingwood

Munyard has represented South Australia in the U18’s competition and won back-to-back flags with South Adelaide in 2018 and 2019.

Crows General Manager of Football Administration Phil Harper said Munyard was close to joining the Crows ahead of the 2019 AFLW season.

“She was close to joining us last year,” Harper said.

“She played three games for the Bulldogs this year after overcoming a hamstring injury, and played pretty well. For family reasons, she wanted to come home to Adelaide.

“With Sophie Li having retired, Hannah fits the need for us, a really quick player with good skills.”

The AFLW trade period opened on Monday, August 3 and will finish at 2pm (AEST) on Wednesday, August 12.

Restricted free-agents can continue to move until 2pm (AEST) on Monday, August 17 and delisted free-agents have until 2pm (AEST) on Friday, August 21

The final AFLW draft order will be finalised shortly after.
