Well done Court, an original in every sense of the word. What a story, I hope you are very proud of what you have achieved.

Yep. All the best to Courtney and family in her retirement. I was hoping she could've played another 2 or 3 seasons with us.

Didn't realise she had retired. What a career and story. We are going to miss her big time.

Yeah, what can you say? Gave up so much to play for us, coming down from Mildura and being away from family.

Bloody great player too, could take a contested mark and kick goals when we needed them.

She will be so hard to replace.

Was clearly losing pace - but very solid 1:1 - and able to bring the ball to ground usually when she doesn't mark it. Certainly, don't seem to have anyone else right now who can play this role so something we will need to find in the off-season or otherwise need to change our game style and skill level to be able to hit up targets. Could very well see us back out of the 8 - was clear playing NM and Bris the value a large forward target is in this competition.

Well done and all the best!

Courtney will be one of our first revered AFLW players. She was really needed in these early years.

Loved watching CW play. Tremendous contested mark, judged the ball in flight so well and body positioning was outstanding.
And competed like it meant everything.
Superb footy player and a fantastic Richmond player
