Simone Nalder

Height
186cm
DOB
30 June 1990
Position
Ruck

No less than a week after earning VFLW premiership honours over the Southern Saints, Essendon ruck Simone Nalder was quickly trading in her sash for stripes.

The unavailability of Leah Cutting for Season 7 due to work commitments opened the door for the ready-made ruck to join St Kilda’s playing list, adding height and support to All-Australian recruit Erin McKinnon. Nalder has spent the past five years on Essendon’s VFLW list, holding vice-captaincy duties before adding a maiden Grand Final success to her list of achievements. The former Bomber was a professional netballer for the Canberra Darters before picking up the Sherrin in 2017.
