She has admitted that being cut by the Roos at the close of AFLW03 was “a shock” but she is hopeful that being picked up in Tuesday’s national draft can reinvigorate her love for the game.
“I actually haven’t thought about footy for a couple of months, which has been so nice for me. So refreshing,” Hope said on ABC.
“For me, I’m in the draft which is coming up. I’ve nominated for the draft.
“I just want to play footy and I want footy to be fun. I want it — especially AFLW — to keep growing so little girls can eventually one day play that full-time.
“I also want to play footy and enjoy it.”
Hope, who married now-wife Isabella Carlstrom in August, said she believed she had “had a tough ride” in AFLW and hoped the draft could bring a new chance.
