'She'll take to it like a duck to water'

Emma Duggan and Vikki Wall celebrate

Emma Duggan is backing her Dunboyne and Meath team-mate Vikki Wall to be a huge success in the AFLW.

Wall is set to make the switch to Aussie Rules later this year after it was recently reported she is set to sign for North Melbourne. And while Duggan herself has no immediate plans to join the Irish exodus to the AFLW, she is in no doubt that the reigning LGFA Footballer of the Year will be a hit Down Under.

"I think she'll take to it like a duck to water," Duggan told RTÉ at the launch of Kellogg's GAA Cúl Camps on-pack competition.

"She's a massively physical player, and she's an unbelievable athlete. The work that she's put in over the last few years I think is going to show over there as well.

"I'll be looking on, I'll be supporting her the whole way if she does make the move. I'm delighted for her and no one deserves it more than her, and I look forward to seeing her in action."
