Ashleigh Brazill (born 29 December 1989 in Campbelltown, New South Wales) is an Australian netball and AFL Women's player, playing both sports for the Collingwood Magpies.[2][3] She has played for the West Coast Fever and New South Wales Swifts previously in her netball career.

Netball career[edit]


Brazill made her domestic league debut for the New South Wales Swifts in 2010.[4] She made the move to the West Coast Fever in 2012 and made an immediate impact, winning the club's MVP for the season.[1] Brazill suffered with injuries over the next two seasons which restricted her time on court. Despite sitting out most of the 2014 ANZ Championship season Brazill captained Western Sting, leading the Fevers' reserves team to a bronze medal in the second-teir Australian Netball League (ANL). She was also named joint Player of the Year in the 2014 Australian Netball League.[5] She was selected as captain of the Fever for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.[6]

She signed with the Collingwood Magpies ahead of the 2017 Suncorp Super Netball season.[7] Brazill has been hugely influential in wing-defence for the Magpies and her good form was rewarded with the club best and fairest award for the 2018 season.[8]


In 2010, Brazill was one of the twelve players selected for the Australian Fast5 team. She took part in the 2011 World Netball Series in Liverpool and was Australia's best player for the series. She represented Australia again in the Fast5 series in 2013 and 2014.[9] In 2015 Brazill was selected for the Australia national team squad and despite missing out on any game-time in the 2015 World Cup, she did make her national team debut at the end-of-year Constellation Cup.[10] She was also a late replacement for Renae Ingles in the January 2016 tour of England.[11]

Australian rules football career[edit]

On 18 October 2017, she was drafted to play for Collingwood in the 2018 AFL Women's season after being selected at pick 34.[3]

Collingwood re-signed Brazill for the 2019 season during the trade period in June 2018.[12]
