Position
Key Defender

Had an outstanding first season with Melbourne after crossing from the Western Bulldogs, where she was originally signed as rookie in 2016.

The key defender was awarded an All Australian jumper, playing all seven games in 2020 and usually taking the opposition's first or second key forward. Birch is a strong reader of the play and has steady hands overhead. The former Victorian netballer finished equal-fifth in the Dees' 2020 best and fairest and won the club's trademark award.
