Mo Hope for Kangaroos AFLW debut season

North Melbourne's bold AFLW recruiting spree has continued with marquee players Mo Hope and Emma King switching from Collingwood to Arden Street.

The Kangaroos also officially announced the signing of Kaitlyn Ashmore from the Brisbane Lions on Monday as they continue to build toward the club's debut AFLW season in 2019.

The trio join AFLW best-and-fairest award winner Emma Kearney, who left the reigning premier Western Bulldogs to sign with North.

"It's an incredible team already and we're not done yet," Roos AFLW coach Scott Gowans said.

"Kaitlyn, Emma and Mo each bring a unique set of skills and experience from their last two seasons in the competition and will only strengthen our playing list further."

Hope was the face of the inaugural AFLW season when it launched in 2017.

She was largely unable to recapture the goal-kicking form she displayed at lower levels with the Pies and was dropped at one stage last season.

But the Roos are hopeful a change of scenery can revitalise the mercurial veteran's career.

"Mo is one of the most dynamic forwards in the competition," Gowans said.

"She reads the ball incredibly well and is super exciting to watch."

Collingwood and Brisbane have each lost four players to the Kangaroos as they build their inaugural playing list.
