After impressing in the midfield for Richmond, Grace Campbell was recruited to North Melbourne ahead of the 2021 campaign where she’s turned into a solid contributor forward of the ball.
Taking on the role of pressure forward, Campbell’s history in the middle of the ground lends itself well to her new role, with her intent to tackle, ability around the stoppage and assertive nature helping fill a variety of needs inside the forward 50. Excluded from the side for the middle third of the 2022 season, Campbell fought her way back into the Kangaroos' line-up for the business end of the season. The lack of an aligned VFLW season hurt Campbell's cases for a recall over this campaign. No reserve games in the early part of the AFLW season meant she couldn't press her case for a recall as much as she would have liked.
