Talent on show

By Georgia Smith

Benalla’s Becky Webster left her mark on Adelaide Oval on Friday.

The talented youngster was a part of the AFLW under-18 All Australian squad, playing a curtain-raiser game for the EJ Whitten Legends game.

Webster said it was an exciting occasion to play on the turf, with her team running away with the win in front of the Adelaide crowd.

‘‘In the first quarter the rain came down and it was a bit sloppy but after that the intensity of the game really picked up,’’ Webster said.

‘‘I think I played pretty well and got in the best so that was good.’’

After the game, the AFLW under-18 All Australian team was named.

Although Webster’s name did not appear this year, the talented local said it was still a rewarding experience.
