Name and Nickname: Andrea and "Gilly".

What’s one word to describe you? Tall.

How did you become an Eagle? I was picked up in last years draft after coming through the Eagles Academy.

Favourite NEW teammate so far? Can’t go past my locker buddy and a fellow ruck in "Puddles" (Sarah Lakay). She’s got great energy and enthusiasm!

What is your favourite game day song? I’m not fussy as long as it doesn’t include One Night in Bangkok.

What is your favourite thing to eat the night before or the day of a match? Big bowl of spaghetti and garlic bread.

Do you have any game day superstitions and if so, what? Swanny’s got me onto the iced bun tradition which I’ll keep up this year.

Personal goal for 2022? Keep out of rehab!

Who was your favourite player as a kid? I’m showing my age, but I did like watching John Worsfold and Glen Jakovich.

What player has had the biggest influence on your career? Paz has been a great help since I first started playing at Claremont. I quickly learnt how not to get hurt in the ruck playing against her.

What’s your favourite sport that isn’t AFL? I’m a former netty player (”here if you need” gal) so I’ll go with netball.

What is your favourite football memory so far? Our first win against the Bulldogs was very enjoyable and being involved with the club prior to our first season made it even better. It was nice to see the years of hard work turn into a W and points on the ladder.

If you could be another player for a week, who would it be? I’d be Bows on testing week.

If you could attend any sporting event in the world, what would it be? The Olympics.

Favourite off-season hobby? Cooking, eating and drinking with friends.

If they were going to make a movie based on your life, who would play you? Given how young some of the girls in the team are and how old they make me feel I reckon Meryl Streep would be appropriate for me.

What would you name your boat if you had one? If its going to be anything like Swanny’s boat I would call it the “Empty Esky”.

Tomato sauce in the fridge, yes or no? Big no.
