- Sporting Highlights:
Australian Diamonds goaler, Kiera Austin will call Melbourne home from 2022.
The 24-year-old comes to the club after four years with the GIANTS where she debuted in 2018, playing 29 games, and taking out the club’s Most Valuable Player in 2020.
After making her debut for the Diamonds in the Constellation Cup of March this year, Kiera ruptured her ACL in round 1 of the Suncorp Super Netball season, which sadly ruled her out for the rest of the year.
Kiera brings with her plenty of attacking nous, composure inside the goal circle and of course versatility. Not only is she is able to pull on both the goal shooter and goal attack bib but is more than capable of plying her trade out in wing attack.
An experienced head despite only being 24, Kiera will add a different look to the Vixens frontend in season 2022.
