A natural athlete with an appetite for the contest, Kate Darby will add flexibility to the Blues’ line-up in 2017. Having played Aussie Rules as a junior with the boys, the No.136 draft pick returns to the game she loves and excels at. “Kate is a natural athlete, with her height and strength tremendous attributes,” senior women’s coach Damien Keeping said. “She can play a key role either forward of the ball or behind the contest, making her very versatile and valuable.”
