MFL Sports Ambassador Katie Brennan announced the AFLW Captain for 2018
MFL Sports Ambassador Katie Brennan will once again lead the Western Bulldogs in 2018, after the leadership group was announced at the club's season launch in Albert Park on Thursday night.
Katie is joined in the group by All-Australians Ellie Blackburn and Hannah Scott, as well as midfielder Nicole Callinan. In a show of faith by the club, the four made up the leadership group last season as well.
Katie missed the bulk of last season with an ankle injury, managing just two games, but says she is fully fit and raring to go for the Bulldogs' round one match against Fremantle this Sunday February 4th.
"It's an incredible honour. I wasn't fortunate enough to take the field much with the girls last year, but I had front row seats to the incredible performances they put on," Brennan said.
"I'm feeling great, awesome and excited," she said with a laugh.
"It's been a great pre-season, injury free, touch wood, for the first time in a while, and I think I've done my dash.
Katie will take to the field this Sunday 4th February, in her first game of the season against Fremantle at Whitten Oval.
