Position: Key Defender/Ruck
Recruited from: Peel Thunder WAFLW
Schilling is a key defender with an ability to ruck if needed. The versatile half-back has a proven aerial ability with clean marking skills, making her a vital asset to the Eagles’ defensive system in 2022. Schilling is also able to take on the contest and battle it out at ground level, making her a prominent utility off the half-back line and in the midfield.
What AFLW list manager Jordan Loxley had to say:
“Really competitive key back, she’s a quality intercept marker who can lock down on her opponent as well. Uses the ball well and is super competitive. Another really good person, which was one of the reasons we were really excited to bring her in.”
