A strong bodied midfielder, Bannister has long been considered as one of Tasmania’s best talents.

Selected with pick 19 in the 2017 draft, Bannister missed the entire 2018 season after rupturing her ACL.

Having successfully recovered from her injury, Bannister plans to make amends for the time spent on the sidelines.

“Daria has the capacity to play as both a strong bodied inside midfielder or high half-forward,” Harwood stated.

“We are looking forward to working with Daria through her rehab as she pushes towards a return, and what promises to be a long and exciting career.”
