Snapshot: From a basketball background, she took part in the AFL talent search program earlier this year

What Melbourne recruiting manager – AFL Women’s Anthony DeJong says:
“Lauren is one of our rucks. She’ll play first ruck for us and she recently played in the exhibition game and also picked up 18 possessions through the midfield. She’ll also be able to go forward for us as well. We’re really happy with her. She’s a young player who has come across from basketball this year. She was identified through the talent search at the start of the year and has gone on in leaps and bounds. She is a great example of player who is playing dual sports.”
