Sarah Hosking is a hard, inside midfielder for the Richmond Tigers, known for her bash and crash style and determination to put her body on the line for her teammates.
She made her AFLW debut for Carlton in the historic first ever AFLW game, was a valued member of the team’s leadership group and once held the AFLW record for most tackles in a game with sixteen against Greater Western Sydney in round 2 of the 2018 season.
Hosking has made the move to Richmond for a fresh start and new challenges. She is looking to become a utility player to make an impact across the ground and drive the yellow and black to their first finals series.
Hosking has made her influence felt off the field, as much as she has on it, working across a number of great initiatives and charities.
She was a course coordinator for the Carlton College of Sport and currently works with not profit organisations Red Dust and 2 Boots to assist remote Australian communities. Red Dust aims to deliver health programs, while 2 Boots – run by her twin-sister, Jess– looks to repurpose and distribute football boots and runners.
Hosking is set to be a favourite of the Tiger army when she runs on for her new side in 2021.
