Gabi Simpson has gone from strength to strength as a player and leader since being appointed captain of the Queensland Firebirds.
After a stellar inaugural season of the Suncorp Super Netball, and a breakout year in the green and gold – Gabi capped off a remarkable 2017 by being crowned the Liz Ellis Diamond award winner as Australia’s best netball player.
Testament to the respect she holds among her peers, Gabi was named vice-captain of the Australian Diamonds and played a pivotal role in claiming silver in the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
A dynamic character on court, her speed off the mark, strength and determination make her a fan favourite across the league and has inspired the next generation of wing defence.
After a disappointing 2019 season, Gabi is determined to lead her team into 2020 with the resilience and fighting spirit the Firebirds are known for.
