Horsham AFLW draft hopeful Ella Friend has had her preparations ruined by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Friend along with three of her Rebels' teammates - Chloe Leonard,Tahlia Meier, and Nyakoat Dojiok - were invited to the Victorian AFLW draft combine that was meant to take place on the weekend.
The former Horsham Saint has strong hopes for this year's draft after putting on strong performances for Vic Country in the under-19 national championships and playing a key role in the Rebels' finals run.
The draft combine would have seen players undergo tests such as vertical jump, agility run, 20m sprint and 2km time trial to offer recruiters a good gauge on this year's talent pool.
It is unclear yet whether the Victorian AFL Draft Combine will be rescheduled.
The AFLW draft is scheduled for Tuesday, July 27 and will be held virtually.
The GWV Rebels boy's side including Horsham's Ben Hobbs and Sam Breuer will have the weekend off, owing to the state's latest lockdown.
The second-placed Rebels were meant to play the Dandenong Stingrays on Saturday.
