10 questions with ... Docker Roxanne Roux

What's your nickname?

My nickname has always been 'Roxy', but I got to Freo and Aunty Gemma has started calling me 'Rocket', so that's it now.  

Whose number did you wear on your back as a kid/who was your favourite player?

I always wore seven, but it wasn't because it was anyone's number. It was just because you have seven holes in your face and as a kid I found that really interesting and thought I'd wear that on the back of my jumper. I've always stuck with that or had a seven in the number, hence No.17. It would be pretty frightening if you had 17 holes in your face…

Roxanne Roux takes a big grab in the shadows of half time, then adds the exclamation with a goal after the siren

What hobbies did you pick up during isolation/lockdown?

I did a lot of puzzles and I followed Juddy's 100 push-up/100 burpees program. That lasted for about two days and then I went on to (high performance manager) Kate Starr's program, which was marginally easier.  

What's your most-used phone app, excluding social media?

It would have to be Spotify. I fight with my partner over Spotify because we leave for work at the same time and share an account, so that's probably my most used. 

Which teammate would go far in MasterChef?

I don't know which one does the cooking, but it's one of the Antonios. Every single night they are having lamb cutlets or a nice roast or they're making pies. For someone who has just moved out and is eating stale bread for dinner, there's food envy. 

If you could be any AFLW player for a day, who would you be and why?

I'd like to be Erin Phillips to know what it's like carrying around all that muscle.    

Worst teammate on social media?

It would have to be Ashley Sharp. She's doing so many TikTok dances and she actually included me in one where I just ran across the picture. She posts a lot on Instagram saying follow my TikTok, so she's out there for the fans.

Which songs are on your pre-game playlist?

When I can get a hold of the Spotify and it's not blasting Miley Cyrus, it's a bit of Diplo at the moment. 

Who is the coach's pet and why?

Has to be Gemma Houghton. Every time she comes out of packs she calls for 'Coops' and every time we start training she has to be by his side.

What's one thing most people wouldn't know about you?

I'm actually a bit of a nerd and love watching anime, so Death Note and Attack on Titan and I'm super excited for the new season coming out on December 11.
