We can sign up to 23 players before the draft. This is a pretty damn good 14 to build on.:thumbsu:

I honestly thought Jessica Dal Pos would go home so that's great news. Courtney Gum as well, seems the Crows just aren't interested in her, their loss . I think Alicia Eva is pretty much rusted on?
I reckon I know why most have stayed with the Giants.

You were a win away from making the Grand Final. The two Grand Finalists have both lost a number of star players to the expansion sides, Melbourne lost five players and Adelaide stalled, dumping their premiership coach.

I think the GWS women know by keeping the side together (excluding Forth and Boyd), they are in a very good starting position for 2019 and should, in my opinion of covering women's footy for the last 5 years, be in the AFLW Grand Final picture.

I'm sure you're right. Big thing to move interstate for the season. Courtney Gum leaves hubby and child in Adelaide, no small thing.They certainly aren't doing it for the money.

GWS #1 signing for 2019 (I presume) just got best on for NSW/ACT U18s again - Alyce Parker. From the instagram posts, it looks like she is working to make sure she is up to it from day 1, as she already looks to have added muscle from last year.

Also a few more re-signings today
In further good news for the GIANTS, five local players and an international star will return in 2019. Canberra’s Britt Tully and Hay’s Jodie Hicks have signed on for another season at the GIANTS, and the club’s first-ever New South Wales signing, Maddy Collier, has extended her stay at the club to a third season.
Forwards Rebecca Beeson and Jacinda Barclay will don the orange and charcoal for another season while promising South Australian rookie Tait Mackrill has also put pen to paper on a new contract. Irish sensation Cora Staunton, who lit up the competition in 2018 with her unique kicking style and hard-nosed attack at the football, will return to Western Sydney for a second season.

The GIANTS received an additional selection at the 2018 NAB AFLW Draft after Canberra midfielder Britt Tully announced she was stepping away from the game for 12 months due to personal reasons. Tully played 14 games for the GIANTS after making her debut in round 1, 2017, finishing third in the 2017 Gabrielle Trainor Medal and winning the Coaches Award in 2018. The club will continue to support Tully.
