BENDIGO Thunder’s Jac Louttit will be part of Richmond’s inaugural VFL women’s team next year.

The Tigers have secured a VFLW licence for next year ahead of the club’s entry into the AFLW competition in 2020.

Louttit was one of the stars for the Bendigo Thunder this year, playing in the ruck in the club’s premiership season in the inaugural Northern Football League women’s competition.

She was the Thunder’s vice-captain, won the best on ground medal in the Thunder’s 5.5 (35) to 4.1 (25) grand final win over Diamond Creek and was runner-up in the NFL women’s best and fairest, finishing one vote behind winner Shannon Egan of Darebin.
