    Gabby Coffey is one of Melbourne Vixen’s most recently promoted training partners, and it was quite the journey to get there. From Mparntwe (Alice Springs) to Naarm (Melbourne), the proud Wiradjuri woman started her netball career in the Northern Territory and has never looked back.

    “You see why people don’t understand Indigenous culture, and it’s because they haven’t seen it, they don’t even know an Indigenous person.

    “Growing up in Alice Springs was awesome, it’s a whole different Indigenous culture up there and you learn so much from it. With Mum being one of the trachoma nurses we used to go out and stay at [Indigenous Communities] heaps when we were younger, which is a really unique experience and I feel very privileged.”

    This is a fantastic article. I hope that Gabby is able to get some opportunities next year and become a full time player. Still some hope possibly for Firebirds?

    If there was expansion down the track, it would be great to have like a Northern Australia team, taking in the NT and North Qld.
