Captain quote on Performance:
“Gabbi is a zippy little forward and is always providing plenty of excitement out on the field. Gabs has shown exceptional development in her footy skills this year and as a result is becoming more and more confident with her footy ability. This was highlighted in our most recent game against UTS, with Gabs being selected in the top 6 for the day. Looking forward to continuing to watch this little superstar develop in the coming years”.
