Tarni White has earned the Round 2 Dare Sainter of the Round after her commanding performance across half-back.
The 19-year-old shined against the reigning Premiers, notching up an impressive 18 disposals and 10 marks in just her second game for the Saints.
Despite the loss, the Queenslander was prominent across the afternoon, particularly in her dominant second half.
White racked up seven disposals and five marks in the third quarter, showing both composure and a willingness to take the game on under immense pressure.
In one impressive moment, the Coorparoo product intercepted the ball at centre-half back, before tearing through the centre of the ground.
Although downplaying her role, White’s stellar performance was one to remember.
“I played okay, but I’m always looking to improve,” White told saints.com.au.
“We were pretty relentless and our tackle pressure was insanely high.”
“We played to our strengths and we’ll look to match that against the Demons.”
St Kilda will face an undefeated Melbourne this Friday night at RSEA Park in the club’s inaugural Pride game.
