GWS Giants

GWS Giants


Alicia Eva


The barometer for GWS since crossing from Collingwood in one of the League's biggest trades, Eva took over the captaincy from the retired Amanda Farrugia on the eve of the 2020 season.

Eva's experience is crucial to the Giants, but she had a quiet season by her own high standards last year and will be keen to fire in 2020. A coach-of-the-future, Eva works with the GWS men's programs at AFL and NEAFL level.

Player honours: 2nd best and fairest 2017 (Collingwood); best and fairest 2018; All-Australian 2018. 

Previous AFLW club: Collingwood. 

Draft history: 2016 NAB AFLW Draft 7th round selection (Collingwood) No. 54 overall; 2017 NAB AFLW Draft traded to GWS with selection No. 5 for selections No. 1 and No. 9.
