In short, the four rule changes are:

  • Quarters extended by two minutes
  • Interchanges capped at 60 per game
  • Boundary throw-ins to take place from the boundary inside the 50m arcs
  • Runners can only enter the field three times per quarter, plus after goals

Sophie McKay currently being touted as a top pick in her draft year:

Carlton fans will be keen a close eye on McKay, who is the daughter of Andrew, and eligible under the father-daughter rule. She is tough, has clean hands and can explode from a stoppage with class, while also going forward and hitting the scoreboard.

She's still a star.....
If it wasn’t for Brett Munro’s mismanagement, Prespakis might have stayed at Carlton. Munro destroyed the Carlton AFLW club, and has set them back a good five years. Buck won’t last and will prove to be a Brendan Bolton figure. He is playing Moody out of position.

Carlton AFLW need an experienced coach. A club in their position will not benefit from a coach like Buck. If he continues to play Moody out of position, she could leave at the end of the season. How long will it be before he loses the players? If Carlton AFLW don’t beat West Coast this weekend, it’s season over, and possibly the wooden spoon.

The AFL has not helped Carlton AFLW either, by allowing the expansion clubs to pilfer talent. This has set the club back further.

Until Munro’s wrongs are addressed Carlton AFLW will not attract big name players. It’s sad to see what has happened, as this club was looking good, yet now they are in an unnecessary rebuild due to one person’s ineptitude, and bloody mindedness. Munro refused to negotiate with Harris, and this was the beginning of the end. Half of Richmond’s best players are ex Carlton players. Most departed due to low morale courtesy of Brett Munro.

U17 AFLW Futures - Sophie McKay earning the match MVP.


Playing for Team Harris in their win over Team Schleicher, she finished with 30 disposals and six clearances in a solid display.

#8 Sophie McKay (Sandringham Dragons/Vic Metro)
27/04/2006 | 168cm | Midfielder/Forward

Winning the overall MVP, it goes without saying McKay starred in the win. Racking up 30 disposals, and a lot of those around the coalface, McKay showed her smarts and class time and time again. There were a few instances where she handballed to herself under pressure, and stepped through traffic with ease. On one occasion a handball to herself on the wing boundary line set the wheels in motion for a Team Harris goal. She had a shot on goal that missed in the third term, but finished the day as best afield for her work on the inside and spread to the outside.


2024 looking to be a great year for Carlton father-child recruits!

So Britney Gutknecht got off at the tribunal, she destroyed Sheppard, that had to be weeks (she was concussed too) - is the head not “sacrosanct” in the AFLW? Or they just not worried about law suits in the women’s game?
