Selection No.8 – Elise O'Dea
Born: 04/09/91

Snapshot: A tough, quick and strong midfielder who moves well in terrific and uses the ball cleanly. She is originally from the ACT.

What Melbourne recruiting manager – AFL Women’s Anthony DeJong says:
“She’ll play through the midfield and up forward. She has elite skills and can go in and get the ball, so we’re rapt to have her and she will complement Karen Paxman, Mel Hickey and Daisy Pearce through that midfield. Elise will add extra strength through there. Her family is made up of lifetime Melbourne supporters and she made the shift down from Canberra four years ago to play at the Darebin Falcons and we’re just rapt to have her.”
