Trade wrap, day seven: Irish sisters on the move, Daisy becomes a Dog

GRACE Kelly is now a Saint, sister Niamh has moved to Adelaide with teammate Amber Ward, Nikki Gore has jumped to Fremantle, while inactive Crow Jess Sedunary is now an Eagle.

Former West Coast forward Grace Kelly made the switch to the Saints in return for pick No.54 (currently No.9 in the West Australian draft pool).

A Gaelic footballer from County Mayo, Kelly has kicked nine goals from her 23 games. She hit a rich patch of form with seven majors last year, but managed just one in 2022.

Niamh Kelly and Ward were traded to Adelaide in exchange for Sedunary and pick No.43.

Initially selected with pick No.59 in 2019, she will be traded for pick No.49.

Port Adelaide has signed former WNBL basketballer Olivia Levicki as a rookie.

The 29-year-old stands at 188cm and is set to play in the ruck, having featured for Townsville, the Melbourne Boomers and Perth Lynx in the WNBL, playing under her maiden name of Thompson.

She was scouted by superstar Erin Phillips while playing basketball for South Adelaide earlier this year, before going through a skills session with coach Lauren Arnell.

"A few weeks after that game, Erin reached out to me on Instagram and asked If I was interested in trying football," Levicki said.

"I was like 'oh my god, I did not expect that!'. I got offered an amazing opportunity and it was kind of out of the blue, but I knew I would look back and wonder 'what if?', if I didn’t take it. The last few weeks have been a complete whirlwind."

Carlton has moved up the draft order, landing pick No.18 (No.9 Vic) from Hawthorn.

In exchange, the Hawks have gained picks 25 (12), 28 (14) and 55 (30).
