The West Coast Eagles have landed exciting forward Roxy Roux and secured a second-round draft pick after reaching a trade deal with Fremantle.

Roux and pick No.27 in the upcoming 2023 draft were included in the deal which saw midfielder Aisling McCarthy depart to the Dockers.

Roux was recruited by the Dockers in the 2019 AFLW Draft, making her debut in round one of the 2020 season.

The 22-year-old Dongara product kicked four goals in her first three games, received a Rising Star nomination and was named in the AFLPA 22Under22 team in the same season. 

Roux is an excitement machine and a fan favourite in the League, her high-flying marks and ability to hit the scoreboard keeping supporters on the edge of their seats.

AFLW List Manager Jordan Loxley said Roux is a great addition to the team and to the club.

“We are delighted to bring Roxy into the club,” Loxley said.

“Roxy was the first selection in WA in her draft year and someone we were really disappointed to miss out on, so we are now thrilled to be able to call her an Eagle.

“Roxy has a huge amount of talent and great versatility, which is something we really value, and we believe has her best football ahead of her.

“We would also like to thank Aisling for her contribution to the club over the last four years.”

The Eagles’ current draft hand includes picks No.2, 23, 27, 42 and 62 with six days remaining in the 2023 AFLW Trade Period.
