Joining North from the Western Bulldogs through the draft, Kim Rennie is an established AFLW contributor in the ruck, and played a key role in the Bulldogs’ premiership in 2018.
Coming from a basketball background, Rennie is equally as capable and confident playing as a key forward, often chipping in with important goals in her time at the Bulldogs. Splitting her time between the ruck and the forward line in 2022, Rennie was at her best when she was taking ruck contests in the middle of the ground or providing a marking target long up the line. The Kangaroos have struggled to find the right ruck partner for Emma King since the first days of the AFLW program, but Rennie provides the strong tap-work and good ball-use to be effective in the middle, but strong hands to be a dangerous forward. Her quality in the forward half of the ground didn't show on the scoreboard this year, but she should take her contributions up a level next season after having season six to learn the patterns of her midfield and work in tandem with King.
