Player Bio

AFLW clubs: Carlton
Debut: Round 1, 2017
Recruited from: Cranbourne (VIC)

Carlton secured the services of Bianca ‘BJ’ Jakobsson, selecting the forward with its first selection in the AFL Women's draft.

Hailed as one of the elite players in the 2016 talent pool, she will further strengthen the Blues’ forward line.

The 23-year-old has “incredible” athletic attributes according to senior women’s coach Damien Keeping, matching her ability to take strong contested marks.

“Bianca has supreme decision-making skills when she has the ball,” Keeping said.

“Not only will she aid our forward line, but she has the versatility to play a role through the midfield and down back when required.”

After recovering from a severe knee injury, Jakobsson was named the Western Bulldogs' most influential player in the team’s win over Western Australia in early 2016 – a true testament of her character.
