Player Bio

Hickey is a fierce competitor with a strong appetite for the contest. Plays as a key defender, yet still managed two goals in the previous season. The 33-year-old is a premiership player for the Darebin Falcons, and debuted for Melbourne in the 2017 AFLW season after being drafted in 2016 from the marquee selection. Her outstanding season performance was recognised as she became a member of the 2017 AFLW All-Australian Team. Her grandfather's cousin was Geelong legend and Australian Football Hall of Fame inductee, Reg Hickey.
