Despite being the youngster player selected at last year’s AFLW national draft, Katherine Smith was not afraid to tackle the position of club delegate for Melbourne. Leadership is a talent developed heavily during her junior career having captained the Vic Metro Youth Girls Squad to premiership glory in the 2016 season, having been named best on round in the grand final. Smith’s versatility to play through the midfield and down back was a key part in her selection in the draft.
