Late change: Jess Allan out & Emily Goodsir debuts


Emily Goodsir will make her AFL Women’s debut in the GIANTS’ clash with Adelaide at Hisense Stadium on Sunday. The New South Wales product replaces Jess Allan who has been withdrawn due to illness. Allan travelled with the team to Adelaide on Saturday but presented with symptoms of the common cold and after failing to pass a fitness test on Sunday morning has been replaced in the side. Allan has been assessed by the team doctor, has not needed to be isolated from the team and has shown no symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Goodsir, a hard-bodied midfielder who can also play forward, was selected by the GIANTS with pick 76 of the 2019 NAB AFLW Draft. The 27-year-old had an outstanding 2019 playing with East Coast Eagles in the AFL Sydney competition, finishing runner-up in the competition’s Best and Fairest – the Mostyn Medal – and performed strongly for the GIANTS in their VFL Women’s campaign. Goodsir becomes the third GIANT to make their AFLW debut in 2020 and becomes the 54th woman to represent the GIANTS.

The GIANTS' chances of a maiden finals appearance have been boosted by a 5 point win over Adelaide - its first in AFLW.

The GIANTS have all but guaranteed it will play in the AFLW finals for the first time with a hard-fought victory over reigning premiers Adelaide on Sunday. Played behind closed doors at Hisense Stadium in Adelaide's inner western suburbs, the GIANTS – on the back of a dominating performance from midfield gun Alyce Parker - orchestrated the perfect smash and grab to defeat the Crows by five points, 4.2 (26) to 3.3 (21).

A couple of important milestones were set in the process – the GIANTS beating the Crows for the first time, which was also a new benchmark for wins in a season, with four. The GIANTS (4-2) have moved to second in Conference B with two games to play, while the Crows (2-4) will need a minor miracle to sneak into the finals, trailing third-placed Brisbane by a game and a half.

The third term proved to be decisive with the GIANTS holding the Crows goal-less and getting one of their own courtesy of Britt Tully converting a 50m penalty. Alyce Parker was outstanding for the GIANTS with 30 disposals, Tait Mackrill and Rebecca Beeson were strong and Cora Staunton kicked two goals.

Absolutely robbed, no way was that a throw at the end.

Cora (?) was dumped off the ball before the throw as well. Would've been a free kick to the Giants in AFL.

Can't comment on the general standard of umpiring - only saw the fourth quarter, and even then on my phone.

Congrats to Alyce Parker & Elle Bennetts for making the AFLW AA Squad. It would be a travesty if Alyce doesn't make the team - she's a superb talent, in just her second year. Elle had a good year, but would be surprised if she made the final team. Best of luck to both, though.

A final team of 21 players including a captain and vice-captain will be announced at the W Awards to be held at a later date to be confirmed.


Former netballer Bennetts had a career best season across half back, playing every game and averaging 12 possessions and having a disposal efficiency of 71%.

Parker, 19, continued her stellar rise as one of the competition’s best midfielders by averaging 21 disposals in her seven games and becoming renowned for her match winning ability via her lethal left boot. It’s the second year in a row that the New South Wales product has been included in the squad.
