Phoebe Monahan is set to play her 50th AFLW game on Sunday when the Brisbane Lions take on the Sydney Swans.
The Geelong native was drafted by Greater Western Sydney with pick 39 in the 2017 AFL Women’s draft.
Monahan played 10 games in two seasons with the Giants before joining Richmond prior to the 2020 season during the 2019 expansion.
“It is a bit surreal to make it to 50, a pretty cool achievement,” Monahan said.
“It has taken a while to get here but super excited to be running out with this group.
“I’ve never thought too much about these milestone games, but I’ve loved coming up to Brisbane with this group and the coaching staff.
“Being able to be a part of this has been amazing.”
Monahan is known for her ability to halve contest and be versatile allowing her to play on taller or smaller opponents.
Following the 2021 season Richmond delisted Monahan but the Lions swooped on the key defender signing her prior to season six.
Monahan has since become a staple AFLW Head Coach Craig Starcevich’s side, complimenting fellow defender Shannon Campbell along with captain Bre Koenen and vice-captain Nat Grider.
Having played 27 games for the Club, Monahan is now embedded in the Lions fabric having been a pivotal part of both finals’ series in 2022.
