- Squad Number50
- Debut date
Linebacker Smith has enjoyed a strong showing this year, not only by taking on the captain’s arm-band for the Lions’ inaugural B team, but by finishing the Sapphire campaign as her sides’ top tackler. A vibrant character, much of this power-ball’s potency comes from her desire to improve and her infectious enthusiasm and as such she deservedly received the Lions Players’ Player Award this season. Further international recognition over the summer should round off a fruitful year for Smith.
Alice joined the Lions a little later than everyone else, but made up for lost time care of her rapid rate of learning and enthusiasm. Making a huge impact in the 2014 National Sapphire Finals, particularly against Hertfordshire Tornadoes, Alice is a real prospect for the future: explosive power, game awareness and an appetite for collision her weapons of choice.
