The versatile 24-year-old flourished in a new backline role with Hawthorn's VFLW side this year, and is hoping to continue to develop that at Tigerland. 

"I think I'll be playing at both ends of the ground but mostly in the backline, I've really loved playing in the backline this year," she said.

"(I'll bring) my speed, my hunger for the ball, and my tackle pressure as well."

Cox is no stranger to a number of her new teammates, having previously played with Beth Lynch, Meagan Kiely, Meg Macdonald and the Hosking twins. 

"I'm so excited to be playing wth these girls again," she said.

"I grew up playing with the Hoskings and and loved it, so it will be awesome to play with them again."
