WHO IS MAJAK DAW?

Majak Daw fled war in Sudan with his family and arrived in Australia in 2003.

In 2010 he became the first Sudanese-born AFL player when he was drafted ninth overall by North Melbourne.

He didn’t much much of an impact early in his career and was dropped to the reserves several times

Daw was accused of rape in 2014 over an alleged 2007 incident, but acquitted at trial in December 2015.

In 2018 season he was moved to defence and established himself as a key player, making many intercept marks.

He is active in Melbourne’s Sudanese community and is an AFL Ambassador. 

Ms McKay also spread the heartwarming news via her own Instagram account as the pair vacations in Byron Bay. 

‘Pretty happy about our lil friend that’s on the way. Baby Daw due this year,’ she posted. 

The announcement of the pregnancy came just six months after the Sudanese-born player plunged 25 metres off Bolte Bridge in Docklands, Victoria.

He suffered a serious hip and pelvic injuries as a result of the bridge fall.
