Tracey and Crookes seem to have decent foot skills. We are going to have to invest heavily on some skilled midfielders when we recruit for our first season as we are getting destroyed in the centre. Hard to get a read on the forwards as it's just not getting down there. Mitchell not afraid of the physicality but skills let her down.

Swans White has started

Gulden so far the stand out. Phillips has done some good things. Freya Taylor seems to know her away around the football.

Good goal to Lewis after a significant contested mark by Hendrie.

Goal to Phillips after a dropped mark by the GWS defender. Swans up 14 to 9 late in the second quarter.

Goal to Convery. Some of the girls reluctant to take a shot from any more than 30 out.

Leaked a goal to get the giants back within 4 after a dropped mark in the backline that really should have been taken.

Current score 20-16 3 minutes gone in the 3rd.

Another great goal to Phillips after some bullocking work from Hall across the half forward line won a ball that really shouldn't have been ours. Gilchrist across the backline plays with confidence and has a decent turn of speed.

Two goals in the space of 30 seconds including a running goal from a centre break and the margin is out to 23 points 39-16. Didn't catch who kicked them, one may have been Convery.

Tackling from the white team has been pretty good with Gulden taking down another opponent. Unfortunately Giants goal from the resulting stoppage. Margin back to 17.

3QT Swans White 39 - Giants Burnt Sausages 22 Something to work on will be the tendency to overcommit numbers to the contest. Have been caught on the turnover a couple of times.

After the Swans defence held up against a significant run of play the Giants way they concede a goal. 10 points the difference, 14 gone in the last.

Out on their feet. A couple of butchered F50 entries from our girls have kept the Giants in it. Have finally managed to lock it in there for a couple of stoppages.

Siren goes after a big tackle in the backline from Woolf. Swans win by 10 39-29. Best include Gulden, Phillips and Hendrie for mine.

Young midfielder Grace Egan is another expected to depart Ikon Park in the next month, with a host of interstate sides – including expansion team Sydney – all in the market for the talented 21-year-old onballer.

Sydney and Port Adelaide are also understood to be leading a handful of other clubs in chasing Adelaide premiership ruck Caitlin Gould, as expansion sides look to pick off the best talent from the Crows.

Members of the QBE Sydney Swans Academy's Open squad and Futures Squad will play in the elite series which runs from May to July.

The Opens squad features the Academy's best female players aged from 18 to 21, while the Futures squad is a development group made up of talented 16 and 17-year-old girls.

The Opens will play a five-game series against teams from the Northern Territory, Tasmania and the GWS Giants.

Four of the five games will be played at the iconic North Sydney Oval and Swans fans are encouraged to get along to watch the next generation of emerging and draft age talent in action.

The Futures Squad will take part in three games against the Giants. Younger developing Academy players will also have the chance to push for selection in those games.

Published this afternoon:
Having missed out on several of their initial targets, Sydney are chasing Brisbane’s All-Australian defender Nat Grider, while Lion Greta Bodey’s future is also up in the air amid interest from several expansion clubs.
Grider and Bodey were mentioned almost a month ago as players being targeted, so it's been quite a lengthy chase.

From Thursday/Friday:
www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslocal/sport/aflw-what-sydney-swans-want-from-marquees-seasoned-players-in-inaugural-season/news-story/bd866a68d71e115ea94d1375cb3caec3
"I'm happy, the foundation are in place, now we are scouting for the superstars and to finish off the build with marquee players," said Coogee based Gowans.
"Leadership is crucial and they must be consistently good with the ability to lead and drive the players. Potentially an older player. We have some people in mind. We are in the interview process."
Gowans said having the season moving from an expected December/January start to August has made snaring talent difficult but he has 10 open signings done - along with five AFLW ones he cant yet announce - with 15 spots still to fill.

From 20th April:
Jamie Stanton is weighing up interest from one side of the country to the other.
The Gold Coast Sun, and former Lion and Roo, is understood to have been sounded out by Fremantle and West Coast in recent weeks in relation to a move west.
She has also had interest from New South Wales.
