WHAT THE COACH SAYS:
“Brie is a really dynamic and crafty attacker who can play in the mid court and in the shooting circle. She adds so much flexibility and versatility to our attacking line up and at her best can really rip open a defensive unit.
“She’s a real student of the game, a natural playmaker with great instincts and vision. I know it means a lot to her to play for her home city and she’s so committed and determined to re-establish herself back on the national scene.” – Dan Ryan, High Performance Director and Superleague Head Coach at Leeds Rhinos Netball
