A fluid midcourter with a flair in attack, Cransberg has proven beyond all doubt she has the skill and mental strength to succeed at the top level. After rupturing her ACL in 2018, Cransberg put the time and effort into her recovery and came back with a bang in 2019, winning a title with the Victorian Fury. Her perseverance and toughness to overcome her setback are sure to serve her well on court - look for Cransberg to display pace and courage in the Wing Attack position, but also to showcase her endurance at Centre.
