Meath ladies star Vikki Wall will head to Melbourne at the conclusion of the Royalette’s defence of their All Ireland title.
Wall’s move to Australian Rules has been confirmed, after the North Melbourne club announced a deal for the 24 year old.
A post on the clubs website confirmed the deal for the Dunboyne ace
It said “Vikki is a player we’ve been keen to get to North Melbourne for a while, and she obviously had a great deal of interest from AFLW clubs. We’re delighted that she’s committed to playing at North,” said AFLW talent and performance manager Rhys Harwood told the clubs website.
“Vikki is a highly credentialed player whose work-rate and desire set her apart. We’ve been really impressed with her power and speed, as well as the intensity and physicality she plays with.
“The impact she has on games with Meath is outstanding, her ability to create attacking opportunities and break the game open in Gaelic are significant. She has a number of assets we think will allow her to become a highly impactful player in AFLW.
