Pudney Returns to Oval Avenue

Last Updated:

The WWTFC is delighted to announce the signing of ex Eagle junior Kai Pudney.

After winning the McCallum Tomkins Medal as the best player in the Under 18’s competition in 2018, Kai was selected by Port Adelaide as a Category B rookie in the NAB AFL Draft. Kai went on to play 15 League matches for the Magpies, averaging a very healthy 22 disposals a game, spending the majority of his time playing on the wing.

On Kai’s signing CEO Luke Powell said “As always, we love having our Eagles juniors return to our Club. Kai had a really strong first season of League football and is probably a bit unlucky to find himself off Port’s list after just one season. Kai is determined to get back into the AFL system and we hope he is able to do so off the back of playing some quality football for our Club.”

On his return Kai said “I am very excited to come back to the Eagles. I cant wait to start Pre-Season and I am looking forward to playing with my mates again. My family and I are really excited by this opportunity and are looking forward to the season ahead.”

Kai will join teammates for the first night of preseason which will commence on Monday 18th November from 5:30pm.
