AFLW clubs: Carlton
Carlton debut: Round 1, 2018
Recruited from: Seaford Tigerettes (VIC)
An inaugural Blue, Jess Hosking missed the Club’s 2017 campaign with knee and shoulder injuries only to hit back to establish herself throughout the 2018 season. From there, Hosking joined a successful career in the defensive lineup, with her trademark crushing tackles and relentless play around the contest, Hosking played with the same tenacity and toughness that Blues’ fans have come to love and expect from the 24-year-old. Hosking enjoyed a varied role in 2021, with the former defender enjoying stints around the ground, competing with equal toughness in any position she played.
