Having represented her country in women’s rugby sevens, Brooke Walker moved from Sydney to Melbourne in order to pursue her ambition of playing in the AFLW in 2018.
Walker arrived at Carlton as a rookie signing after playing for its VFLW side and played the final seven games of the season in her debut year. Walker has been described by coach Daniel Harford as a “tackling machine” and is known for her pressure in defence, but also has the ability to push up through the centre. Walker has been an impressive and consistent force at Carlton since her arrival. Walker was restricted to just six games during season six, 2022, with the exciting talent unable to get a consistent run of games. Walker was able to show glimpses of her damaging best and will hope for some luck heading into the coming season so that she can display it some more. Walker's ability to apply forward pressure and hit the scoreboard makes her a valuable asset to the Blues, as well as showing some sensational media talent in her time on the 'Behind the Game Changers' podcast.
