West Coast Eagles


Amber Ward

12 October 2001

A former soccer player, Ward only took up the oval-ball game four years ago and showed a natural affinity for AFL, going on to represent South Australia and Central Allies at the 2018 and 2019 NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships, respectively. Ward added to the Eagles' backline mix in 2021 after being signed as an undrafted free agent alongside Roosters teammate Lauren Gauci.

The lockdown defender debuted in the opening round of 2021 against Adelaide and played every match for the year, boasting a solid game sense and a powerful right boot.
