Isabella Grant will make history when she becomes the first father-daughter prospect to line up for the Western Bulldogs in the AFLW.

Grant, the daughter of club legend Chris who is now the Dogs’ head of football, will debut against Geelong at GMHBA Stadium on Friday night.

Grant battled through an injury-hit 2020 campaign but has impressed this year and will don the No.3 guernsey that her famous father wore for most of his career.

“It’s gonna look good on you, I can see it,” Grant snr said after Isabella had surprised him with news of her selection by presenting the No.3 guernsey in a gift-wrapped box.
