From past seasons there hasn't been enough interest to have an individual thread per game, so let's keep it all in this one thread & I'll threadmark each week to keep an index.
Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
Nah,I didn’t watch the game. That score line isn’t going to help grow the sport though, maybe making the fields smaller would assist?
Shame that the conditions appear to be wet again, hopefully better than last week!With a little help from her boyfriend and her school principal, we were able to pull off another Kia Power to Surprise moment for Lisa Steane who will debut in round 2 of the AFLW against the Kangaroos.www.gwsgiants.com.au
Steane to Debut
New South Wales product to become the 53rd woman to play for the GIANTS. Local product Lisa Steane will make her NAB AFL Women’s debut on Saturday when the GIANTS take on the North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos in Launceston. Steane’s journey to the AFLW hasn’t been an easy one with the 25-year-old overlooked in three drafts before she was selected with the GIANTS second pick in the 2019 NAB AFL Women’s Draft.
After playing with Black Diamond League side Nelson Bay, Steane moved to Sydney and joined Macquarie University where she has continued her development over the past two seasons. Primarily a midfielder, Steane played for the GIANTS’ VFL Women’s side in 2019 and claimed best on ground honours in Macquarie University’s 2019 AFL Sydney Grand Final win.
Boasting speed and a toughness around the ball, Steane has the ability to play a variety of roles for the GIANTS. “She’s an interesting player, she can play inside midfielder or outside,” McConnell said. “Lisa’s probably more adept on the outside but she’s also played ahead of the ball, on the wing and behind the ball for us so she gives us a lot of flexibility in how we can set up on the weekend.”
Bad kicking is bad football. 2:7 to 6:1 - kick straight and we win it.so many wasted opportunities, they need to find clearer, cleaner pathways inside 50
Was a mix of that, definitely some poor shots, but also a lot of terrible entriessBad kicking is bad football. 2:7 to 6:1 - kick straight and we win it.
We were all over the Suns the week before. Absolutely dominated in general play and just couldn’t get the ball between the big sticks. Didn’t see this one but 9 scoring shots to 7 says we must have been competitive around the ground.
Goal kicking practice all round this week.
Bonner was a known loss that would be felt, Eva a huge loss that I doubt we will cover.Melbourne has named injury-replacement player Sarah Perkins for her first game for the club as the Demons' injury crisis deepenswomens.afl
