Katie Brennan (she/her)
Richmond Tiger’s captain, Katie Brennan, is one of the AFLW’s elite.
The gun forward and midfielder led from the front in 2021, earning All Australian selection and finishing second in the club’s best & fairest award as the side’s leading goalkicker.
She played in the inaugural season of AFLW as a marquee signing and captain of the Western Bulldogs. She led the Bulldogs to the 2017 Grand Final, kicked fifteen goals in thirteen games and was the leading goalkicker in 2019 despite an injury riddled time with the club.
Brennan signed with the Richmond Football Club at the end of 2019 season, joining the expansion club for a fresh start. The signing was historic as she was the first player to sign with the Richmond Football Club women’s team and was the first AFLW player to sign a two-year contract with a club. Brennan is the founder of her gym, KB.Performance, which looks to educate, inspire and empower women on and off the field in what is a women’s only elite performance space.
