Thought he spoke very well. Very committed to Womens' footy and to developing women coaches.
If he walks the walk as well we have done well. Great explanation as to why North cut him. $$$$$. Simples. No hard feelings.
Made a great point that a lot of the best coaching candidates are still playing.

I think if I link to the tweet, then the daily telegraph article can be viewed online??

TAYLAH CANOBIE, SWANS RED TEAM

This 19-year-old hails from the NSW central coast and plays for the Killarney Vale Bombers.
A teenage midfielder, Canobie is already recognised as one of the rising stars of the game in AFL Hunter Central Coast.

DOM CARRUTHERS, GIANTS ORANGE TEAM

Dom Carruthers hails from Sydney’s north shore and plays for the club in the AFL Sydney competition.
A midfield threat she is described as hardworking and tenacious and ruthlessly attacks the ball.

SENNA GULDEN, SWANS WHITE TEAM

The younger sister of Swans rising star Errol Gulden and like her brother, this UNSW-ES Bulldogs player has talent to burn.
Started out at the famous Maroubra Saints club, she will be coached in the Summer Series by mum Bronwyn.
hardworking inside midfielder

HAYLEY HAWKINS, SWANS RED

From the central coast club of Cardiff which has plenty of players competing in the Summer Series.
Hawkins is a versatile tall who can play all over the ground.

Sydney Swans Academy leader Chris Smith said the club wanted to throw a wide net for talent.
"There'll be 120 women competing in this summer series over the next four to five weeks," Mr Smith said.

"We then choose a representative squad of 35 women, and another 35 women to do a development program.

"They'll then all get to play in the winter season, and by the end of that we'll have a really good idea as to who will represent us as formal members of our first AFLW team."

I think at this point it will be all about just getting experience, I'm definitely not expecting much to begin with.

From AFLW Summer Series: Coaches' Corner
In tough, wet conditions, the young Swans teams were defeated by the two Giants teams in the opening round of the AFLW Summer Series. Swans White were defeated by 59 points and Swans Red by 69 points.
KH: It was a tough start to the Summer Series - not very summer like! The conditions definitely did not suit the Swans Red team, as we have six girls who are six foot tall. Regardless, I was proud of how our girls stepped it up against a more experienced Giants outfit. We improved as the game went on and definitely have some key areas to work on but some positives to come out of game
Chuckling over imperial measurements :)
But we do have some tall girls

Who better than Brett Kirk to explain the Blood culture to Scott Gowans
“I spent a bit of time with Brett Kirk and he's filled me in with his history and what his experiences are with the culture,” Gowans said.

“I want to learn more about that as so far it's been really special.”

After being presented his 2005 Premiership Medal, Kirk famously declared “This is for the Bloods” – a moment etched in Swans history and one which refers to the culture the club is now known for.

Kirk's twin daughters, who are part of the QBE Sydney Swans Academy and aspire to wear the red and white just like their Dad, were also part of the club's AFLW campaign and recreated this moment and spoke of wanting to be part of the Bloods culture.

Registration open.
the Sydney Swans are inviting athletes to be involved in the Women's Open Athlete trials.
The trials, to be held on March 19 at Tramway Oval, Moore Park, are a chance for the Swans coaching team to identify AFL talent that may not have been picked up through the Academy system. Cross code athletes (no AFL experience required) who think they have what it takes to succeed at in the AFLW are welcome to nominate.
