PROFILE

Lauren Breguet is an exciting forward out of Central District in South Australia with plenty of upside for the future. Whilst still raw compared to some of her peers, Breguet has been steadily improving inside 50 as a damaging player who can win the ball both in the air and at ground level.

STRENGTHS:

  • Explosiveness
  • Speed
  • Overhead marking
  • Forward craft
  • Contested work

KEY IMPROVEMENT:

  • Versatility

Lauren Breguet has improved her forward craft in the past 12 months, as well as her consistency within games to have an impact even when things are not necessarily going her way. Not afraid of putting her body on the line and winning the contested ball, Breguet has the athletic traits to burn off opponents and show strength on the lead and one-on-one when inside 50. Her overhead marking is strong, and whilst Breguet said she will look to improve her contested marking, she has enough explosiveness to gain separation on the lead from a defender.

Still learning the defensive side of her game in terms of her positional ability, Breguet can go through the midfield and play as an inside midfielder if required, though with limited minutes in there can still build her versatility further. Breguet’s upside is undeniable, and no doubt if not selected in the 2021 AFLW Draft, will be one who can continue to improve and be selected in coming years. She has the athletic traits and forward ability to worry opposition defences, and once her consistency and versatility further improves, it will only stake her case even further.

QUOTES

“It’s (Central District) been a great experience. “I’ve learned so much from all these different coaches. It’s just such a great learning opportunity that I can take on and hopefully better my football, and even life lessons. “I’m still learning the game. I’m starting to learn more positions which I find really useful. I’m still (improving) the defence side of it, and I’m almost finished learning forward which is great.” – Lauren Breguet via “Breguet takes “learning opportunity” with both hands”

“An exciting forward with plenty of eye-catching traits, Breguet has showcased her numerous athletic capabilities in the SANFL Women’s competition this year. Able to clunk some strong marks, then burn off opponents to create goal-scoring opportunities, Breguet has plenty of upside for the future. In her seven games at SANFL Women’s level this year, Breguet averaged the 10 disposals, 2.4 marks, 3.0 tackles and slotted four goals. Whilst it might not sound like a lot, her impact with ball-in-hand is what stands out, such as her 14-disposals, four-mark, four-tackle, one-goal game against North Adelaide in Round 6. At the AFLW Under 19 Championships, she averaged a similar 10.7 disposals and 5.0 tackles, slotting a goal and showing glimpses of her talent.” – Peter Williams via ‘2021 AFLW Draft Positional Analysis: Tall/Medium Forwards”

“Starting forward, Breguet made a splash early with some explosive work around the contest. She looked to bustle away and create space out of tight situations, proving quite lively and difficult to stop at full pelt. Her aggression at ground level matched the overall tone of the game and helped Centrals gain a spark inside attacking 50, as she constantly tried to get her legs pumping and make things happen. Breguet slotted into the midfield group in the second quarter and while she fumbled a touch at ground level, attempted to bring similar intent. She showcased her speed with a nice run-down effort on Brooke Tonon in term three, and capped her game with a solid overhead mark from front position in the corridor, during the fourth quarter.” – Michael Alvaro via “2021 Academy Watch: SANFL Women’s Round 11”
