For Taylor Hanson, being chosen to represent his state in a national AFL competition offered him a rare opportunity to travel interstate and show off his kicking abilities.

"I started to get pumped," he said. The young man from Picton will be wearing the number 6 guernsey when he runs onto the field to represent NSW/ACT during his first AFL Inclusion Carnival.
