Learning a new sport is never an easy thing to do, but that is exactly what Lauren O’Shea did when she took up football in Darwin having moved from Victoria in 2012. A former netballer, O’Shea established herself a key defender come ruck in the AFLW’s maiden competition while serving as a club delegate. O’Shea’s transition to the game was made much smoother by her team’s success, with the school teacher having become a four-time premiership player with Waratah in the Northern Territory.
