    Exactly - but of course, couldn't work out why it didn't like it fast enough

    She seems like a heart & soul player that is great for creating a club's culture and keeping shoulders up in tough games. Appears to be very well liked by the playing group and always looks to be in an upbeat mood. Too early to say future captain?

    On an unfortunate note, apparently, she is friends with the young Cornes girl who converted her into a port supporter with free football tickets.

    Ebony can't find works to describe the feeling

    How about "insane" Ebony?

    In all seriousness she is our female version of Rory Sloane and her nomination is well deserved

    I know you're trying to catch fish, Sanders, but in all honesty most of us who post on this board are way too old to even comment on that - she's 19 ffs

    Back on topic

    Ebony is my favourite Crow woman at the moment - She seems stoked about everything

    She's also really lucky that this has come about when she is 19

    A good friend of mine captained QLD a few years ago and got told to nominate for the draft but she didn't play much last year after a busted shoulder so she didn't... She's nearly 32 so it's probably just a bit too late for her

    She is an absolute jet! Love the way she goes about football and that bubbly personality just does great things for this team.

    Considering Erin is 32 and her opponent at the game was 35, there's still a chance. But even if she can't play at this level, the sport will need quality players at the lower levels to assist those coming through.

    there's probably also the part where she hasn't been playing in the VWFL, rather playing in the same pub footy team I play in (very social) - she is a step above in our league and is our captain - wouldn't be surprised if she pulled her finger out this year after seeing the women's comp though... from watching 3 of the games on the weekend, she would be able to match it...

    Go the Marinator! She's the same height as the Caleb 'The Human Cannonball' Daniels too, has a picture with him on her instagram

    I think she was definitely in the top 3 on the ground, at the very least in the first half. A lot aggression at the contest.

    I look forward to years and years of posting this gif when something good happens at our club. She is Rory Sloane: you cqan't help but love the pure unbridled joy in her face - i wish i knew what the news was, that made her that happy.

    Well done: first game, first win, first Rising Star.

    Also, giffed this

    actually it would have been good to see the GWS player try to tackle Perkins... I have a feeling that may have been .gif worthy too
