Rookie pick: Tiahna Cochrane

Keeping breaks down AFLW picks Damien Keeping spoke to Carlton Media after today's AFLW Draft to break down all our picks.

TIAHNA Cochrane has been recruited by the Blues, after selecting the outside mid with pick No.5 in the 2017 AFL Women’s rookie draft.

There’s no doubt she’ll fit right in at Carlton – her great-uncle is Blues Team of the Century member Trevor Keogh. 

Touted as a great athlete, the Castlemaine local has a real passion and drive for the game.

Women’s senior coach Damien Keeping said Cochrane was an outstanding person both on and off the field.

“Tiahna is such a vibrant and resilient person. I know she’ll give her all every time she pulls on the navy blue jumper,” he said. 

“She goes very hard at the ball, she’s a great competitor and is very clever around stoppages." 

Welcome, Tiahna!
