The Suns were very much an unknown going into 2020, but their fast pace and offensive play made them one of the most exciting young teams in the competition. They managed to squeeze into the expanded finals, but back to back trips to Perth at the end of the season left them without much juice. Kalinda Howarth was the breakout star of their inaugural season, with the mercurial forward making the All-Australian team. The Suns were quiet in the trade period and drafted inside midfielder Annise Bradfield with pick seven. Gold Coast will be hoping their young core makes a big leap in 2021 and carries them to finals.
Three weeks to go until the AFLW season starts. Does anyone know if the girls have warm up matches in the lead up to round 1?

Hearing plenty of love for the new leadership group (I'm a fan of Perko, has a good head on her shoulders) but not much about Kaslar? Any insights? (aside from it simply being an age/new generation thing - I know Leah was very pro-including under 20s in training decision making)

AFLW season 2021: Clubs bracing for changes to Round 1 fixture
With them (GWS) camped in SA, there’s a possibility a footy bubble could be created, where the fixture is rewritten and the Giants, Adelaide, West Coast and Fremantle play each other in the opening rounds and the Victorian and Queensland teams play each other, before the AFL reassesses its fixture considering border closures.
