Brennan appointed Richmond AFLW captain for fourth season
Katie Brennan has been announced as Richmond's captain for AFLW Season 7 after being backed in by her peers for a fourth straight campaign.

The dual All-Australian has been a club captain at AFLW level for each of the competition's seven seasons, highlighting the respect she earns from teammates with her excellent leadership.
Brennan, 29, will spearhead a five-person leadership group with Sarah Hosking as her vice-captain for a third season.
Hosking has had a strong impact since arriving at Richmond ahead of the 2021 season, with her experience at the level and off-field charisma invaluable for younger teammates.
The senior pair will be supported by former VFLW Tigers Bec Miller and Gabby Seymour, as well as the Club's three-time best and fairest winner Monique Conti.
Conti, a superstar of the competition, captained the team for the first time in Round 10 last season due to the absence of Brennan, Hosking and Harriet Cordner.
The 22-year-old's elevation to the leadership group is recognition for her leadership growth on and off the field.

Miller and Seymour have developed along with the Richmond Women's program, emerging as elite footballers and raising their standards in correspondence with the team's rise into and within the AFLW.
Having not missed a game since the Tigers entered the competition in February 2020, Miller and Seymour have become pillars within the team.
Miller was recognised with a spot in the All-Australian squad of 40 during the 2022 season, while Seymour has finished on the podium in the Club's best and fairest on two occasions.

Richmond AFLW senior coach Ryan Ferguson said it was exciting to have five strong leaders emerge within the program following a player vote.
"These five leaders are fierce competitors, (they are) actions based and value driven," he said.
"They drive standards, and they absolutely care for everyone in the room, our whole program, and our Club.
"These girls embody what we aspire to have in a leader."
