Selection No.24 – Richelle ‘Rocky’ Cranston
Born: 25/09/89
Height: 171cm
Recruited from: Geelong Magpies
Snapshot: Super quick forward who has clean hands and is a reliable kick for goal

What Melbourne recruiting manager – AFL Women’s Anthony DeJong says:  
“She has a gridiron background and played for Geelong in the VFL. Richelle’s previously played full-forward and she moved into the midfield recently and she can also pinch-hit in the ruck as well. She gives us some versatility and x-factor as well. She also has plenty of pace and will become a crowd favourite. She’s got the dreadlocks and she’ll make an impact for us. She’s one of three players we’ve picked up from Geelong.”
