A member of the leadership group across her three years at VU Whitten Oval, Callinan made six appearances for the Bulldogs in 2019.

The Western Bulldogs have re-signed a further two AFLW players on the final day of the 2019 Sign and Trade Period, locking in Nicole Callinan and Hayley Wildes for the 2020 season.

A member of the leadership group across her three years at VU Whitten Oval, Callinan made six appearances for the Bulldogs in 2019, while Wildes has been locked in for a fourth consecutive season in the red, white and blue.

In a busy player movement period, the Bulldogs completed four trades during the second Sign and Trade Period, which saw the Club land the 2019 number one draft pick in exchange for Monique Conti.

The final day of the Sign and Trade Period also saw Ashleigh Guest and 2019 draft picks 8, 9 and 48 land at the Bulldogs, while Libby Birch, Emma Mackie and Kate Bartlett departed the Club.

The Western Bulldogs took advantage of the newly introduced two-year contracts, securing eight players for at least the next two seasons including Ellie Blackburn, Hannah Scott and Isabel Huntington.

The Bulldogs parted ways with Katie Brennan (Richmond), Selena Karlson (St Kilda), Belinda Smith (West Coast Eagles) and Tiarna Ernst (Gold Coast Suns) to the four new expansion teams entering the competition in 2020.
