Smart and creative in attack, Wood provides leadership and experience in the goal circle. One of Wood’s trademarks is her ability to shoot with accuracy from long range. Predominantly lining up at Goal Attack, the 29-year-old can also make an impact at Wing Attack.
The Lightning Vice Captain was recognised as the 2021 Lightning Player of the Year after another stellar season. This is the second time she has received Lightning’s highest accolade, after she was previously named joint winner alongside Karla Pretorius in 2018.
Wood was also recently named Vice Captain of the Australian Diamonds team, of which she has been a member of since 2015.
