WHAT THEY ARE SAYING...
“Young gun Erin McKinnon is expected to have a massive impact in the ruck and will be vital in securing clearances”.
Erin has been involved with AFL from the tender age of 12 where her enthusiasm to play the sport compelled her mum to start a women’s team at her local club Mosman Swans. Being a founding member of the club she has gone from strength to strength and enjoyed the sport immensely.
Her talent exceeds her age as she is now only 18 and just started university and she will be playing alongside some very experienced players in the elite women’s league for the second season. At such a young age Erin was chosen for the GWS Giants and made a memorable impact during the first season.
The towering stature of Erin stands at 189cm tall and she is a formidable force when playing in the ruck. She loves being active and also enjoys volleyball, netball and basketball; anywhere she can use her height as an advantage.
Erin is a promising, young talent with excellent potential and a great work ethic. She is excited to begin her second season with the Giants after her “ruckstar” performance during her first season, being nominated as a Rising Star and also gaining a place in the All-Australian Squad.
