St Kilda’s Hannah Priest is a force to be reckoned with

The mature-aged recruit had played only two seasons of football before being drafted to the Saints in 2020. The Mildura-born defender has showed her prowess in the back line and today was no different. Taking four key marks and collecting a solid 10 disposals, Priest was an impressive asset to her side yet again.

With the early loss of young up-and-coming defender Tarni White with a suspected ACL injury, Priest and her backline fought until the end to test the experience of the Fremantle forwards.

And although today’s loss leaves a sour taste in her mouth, Priest’s ability to intercept under pressure and never lose her opponent is something all Saints and AFLW fans should be excited to follow along with.
