Cora Staunton Heading Back To Aussie Rules For Another Season

The Great Western Sydney Giants have announced that Cora Staunton will join them for a second season in Aussie rules.

Stauton first signed professional terms with the AFL women's side last year, joining up following Carnacon's All-Ireland club final victory in December.

The Mayo footballer was the first international player to be drafted by a club.

"Irish sensation Cora Staunton, who lit up the competition in 2018 with her unique kicking style and hard-nosed attack at the football, will return to Western Sydney for a second season," reads the announcement from the club.

"The Ladies Gaelic Football legend will join the GIANTS once her duties with county Mayo conclude in November."

Last month, Staunton refused to be drawn on whether or not she would play for Mayo in this year's championship. The announcement from the Giants suggests that she most definitely will.
