PLAYER BIO

AT A GLANCE

Recruited from: Swan Districts
Drafted via: 2017 Rookie Draft
AFLW debut: Yet to debut
Position: Ruck/Key position

McAuliffe is a key position player with the ability to play forward and back. She played centre half-back for WA in their State 18s in their final game of 2017 and also played in the ruck. In the Grand Final for Swan Districts in the WAWFL, she proved her versatility by playing a key position forward. At 185cm and 18 years of age, she has a real upside at Fremantle. McAuliffe was selected onto Freo's primary list due to Kirby Bentley being placed on the long-term injury list with a knee injury.
