Check out the standout moments of Elle Bennetts' career so far

"We’ve been following Elle closely for a few years now and we are really excited to bring her into our football club," Bulldogs AFLW list manager Mick Sandry said.

"She is a really versatile footballer and we see her being able to add a different dynamic to our midfield group, whilst her ability in defence has been proven in her reading of the football and line-breaking running.

"She’s a great person of really strong character and maturity, and the decision to return home to Victoria I know wasn’t easy. We know in Elle we are getting a player that is going to add so much to our program, not just on the field, but off it as well."
