Nickname: Mik, Miks, Miki
Team/position: Divs baby! Forward
When did you start playing AFL for Syd Uni what brought you here?
2019, one of our friends’ boyfriends told Mezzy, Jules and I to give it a crack and I haven’t looked back.
Team mate most likely to star in the Bachelor/Bachelorette?
Absolutely Bella Gray- those gumboots are made for the spotlight. Kate Hesse in a close second.
Which teammate would you want by your side during a zombie apocalypse?
Probably Georgia Davis if she handles the zombies as well as she throws the opposition. She is also scary when angry- do not approach.
Growing up who was your favourite player and why?
I’m not from an AFL background so none (soz!) But if it was league, probably Trent Hodkinson. His winning try in the State of Origin decider in 2014 to end Queensland’s years of dominance- Simply Stunning. The Morris twins are also heavily underrated.
Do you have a game day superstition/ritual?
Perfume and deodorant shower right before we run out of the shed, always have to be smelling good.
What’s your go to meal post-game at the Nags?
Toss up between the parmi and the burg. Usually the burg but will chat up the parmi right until ordering.
Most embarrassing moment on the footy field (yours or someone else’s).
Coming off the field during last year’s final game against North Shore and punching Em G in the shoulder after she had injured it the week before and was in a sling (took it like a champ though).
Who would you cast to play you in a movie?
Jennifer Lawrence or Rebel Wilson. I would like to say Margot Robbie but don’t believe I have the features (sad).
