GWS Giants have continued the AFL Women's raid on other codes by signing basketball veteran Jess Bibby and Canberra United W-League captain Ellie Brush to rookie contracts.

Former Opal Bibby won five WNBL titles with Canberra and Dandenong before retiring at the end of last season's competition, while Brush will play in the coming W-League season before joining the Giants.

They join Olympians Erin Phillips (basketball) and Kim Mickle (athletics), who have signed for rival AFL Women's clubs Adelaide and Fremantle respectively.
