A late bloomer, Ahrens had a brilliant second season at full-back, leading the Suns’ defence and winning the 2021 club champion award.

The 29-year-old is tall (182cm), disciplined in one-on-one contests, but also willing to create in attack, averaging 16 disposals in what was a career-best year for her. Her consistency was highlighted by selection the 2021 AFLW All-Australian squad. Ahrens is one of the best intercept defenders in the competition, finishing top 10 in total intercepts for the past two seasons.
