TRANS­GEN­DER foot­baller Han­nah Mouncey de­fied crit­ics to let her foot­ball do the talk­ing as she made her VFL Women’s de­but for Dare­bin.

Mouncey, 28, sen­sa­tion­ally had her bid to play AFL Women’s last sea­son de­nied by the league in Oc­to­ber, but was deemed el­i­gi­ble to play for the reign­ing VFLW premier and de­liv­ered a solid show­ing in yes­ter­day’s 54-point loss to NT Thun­der.

Play­ing pre­dom­i­nantly as a key for­ward, 189cm Mouncey had a dis­tinct height ad­van­tage over her direct op­po­nents and fin­ished the day with a solid 11 dis­pos­als and a goal.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties were lim­ited for Mouncey as the Thun­der dom­i­nated the first half.
