Gabi Simpson
The Firebirds signing Gabi Simpson from New South Wales has proven to be an absolute steal by the club.

Simpson pulled on the purple as a young hopeful, fast-forward to 2022 and she is in her 10th season with the Firebirds, five of those as captain and with two championships to her name.

At first glance, the wing defence is a smiling assassin, but behind that smile is a fierce competitor who will make life hell for oppositions.

The 28-year-old attacks every ball with the same ferocity and intent that she would her much-loved piccolo coffee.

Simpson thrived when taking on the captaincy, though since stepping down from the captaincy ahead of the 2022 season – the natural leader is thriving again without the title.

In close to career-best shape, Simpson is showing she still has plenty to offer.
