Lucky seven get free agent lifelines on final day

SEVEN players have had their AFL Women's careers extended after signing with new clubs as delisted free agents by the Tuesday afternoon deadline.

Tall forward Jordann Hickey, who hails from Alice Springs, wasn't able to break into a strong Melbourne line-up this year, but has found a new home at expansion team Gold Coast. 

The Suns have also picked up 2017 premiership Crow Sally Riley; the versatile midfielder has played 14 games in three years but missed out on this year's flag. 

Richmond has signed midfielder Hannah Burchell, who had a few niggling injuries this year and played her one and only game in round seven for Geelong. 

Former Adelaide midfielder Rheanne Lugg fell from favour this year after six games in her debut season of 2018 and has signed at Brisbane. 

Midfielders Melissa Kuys (who played 15 games for Collingwood from 2017-19) and Tilly Lucas-Rodd (18 matches for Carlton in three seasons) have joined new team St Kilda. 

Defender Mia-Rae Clifford (who featured in all of Geelong’s eight matches in 2019) will head west after agreeing to terms with Fremantle.
