Carter is a key member of the Wallaroos squad as a fullback and represented Australia in the recent test against New Zealand.

She'll join the squad as a rookie and joines an already packed lineup, so how much she's set to play in her debut season remains unclear.

"She's got a solid kick, she tackles, she's fit and she's hungry," West Coast head of female football Adam Selwood said.

"At her age, at 29, it gives us a great opportunity to provide her a really strong career and we will explore what she can provide for the team and how she can fit into the squad."
