I think in the original draw we were scheduled to play them out at Casey for the first time, so to get this game at home is good news.

Will be a tough matchup regardless.

Can't say I care much for the Musashi ad they run at the beginning of the Bulldog women's videos. With all the players we've lost in the last couple years it's a bit disconcerting to see Ellie change from the Red White and Blue into the Melbourne colors at the end.

They don’t have much to work with. They went the draft route rather than recruit from expansion rules.
They also went for locals, not realising that Geelong was 20 years behind Melbourne in the development of women’s footy. It’s becoming much more mainstream in the last five years but for at least 30+’years there has been a strong underground women’s footy scene in Melbourne.

Fredrick has really dropped off. Looks like she had cement boots on today. If she was quicker in those last couple of plays in their forward 50, Richmond may have pinched that.

TEAM NEWS | Round 4
Hannah Scott will play her first game of the 2021 NAB AFLW season on Sunday.

6 hrs ago

Hannah Scott will play her first game of the 2021 NAB AFLW season on Sunday, in the Western Bulldogs’ annual Hampson-Hardeman Cup battle against Melbourne.

Scott was part of the earlier exhibition matches in 2015, while fellow inclusion Dani Marshall has also been recalled.

Scott and Marshall will replace Angelica Gogos (ankle) and Nell Morris-Dalton.

Gogos sustained an ankle injury during the Bulldogs’ round three win over Geelong and is set to miss the next couple of weeks.

Ash Guest has been cleared to play this weekend after suffering an eye injury against the Cats, while last week’s debutant Isabella Grant has kept her spot in the team.

Bailey Hunt will spend another week out as she recovers from a calf strain.

The Bulldogs will be looking to add to their two-game winning streak when they meet the undefeated Dees at VU Whitten Oval on Sunday afternoon.

The match will be broadcast live on Channel 7, with the first bounce at 3.10pm.

Score updates will also be available via @BulldogsW on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

All the information you need to know ahead of the game can be found in our round four match preview and in our AFLW match-day hub.

Show you are Made of Red, White and Blue by signing up as an AFLW member for as little as $50 per adult today.

Frederick has an AFLW career because she is tall. She possesses few, if any, other elite traits. Likewise Conti with her speed. Her disposal has been largely average her entire career. Brennan was a solid mark, and an elite kick for goal. Rotting in the festering cesspit that is Richmond AFLW is the appropriate end-point to all their careers.

Does anyone know what time the gates open today? I can't seem to find it online.
Not listed. I'm sure it would be an hour before at least. If not, go down to the Plough or Harts hotel in Victoria St for a shandy.
