U19s wrap: WA posts big win, Scott inspires Country (womens.afl)Anyone know how the SA women's team went at Nationals today, they played Vic Country??
Some personal choice may be involved but a lot of the ones not playing are due to the AFLPA rules/AFLW Insurance policy which involves complicated compulsory rest periods and medical clearances. Newman got injured mid season and has been carrying a bad shoulder since, if she doesn’t return for Westies this season I’m actually taking it as more of a positive as hopefully she’s been told by those at the Crows to be ready for next seasonThe SANFLW season with 4 Minor Rounds and a 3 Week Final Series to go. I was hoping for the Crows AFLW players were using this for a jump to 2022. I believe next year they may adopt the 'Standing the Mark rule' from the Men's comp. So stay agile.
With Foley's ACL there is 1 position in the 21 vacant and doubt on Phillips continuing in 2022 or maybe a permanent forward.
Last year Glenelg AFLW players came out after the hiatus and had a great centre square combo. With the uncertainty over Erin Phillips I would be great to see a reprise of Gould , Marinoff and Jones and possibly run Mules and Varnhagen through the middle and Cox to get more confidence from the injury interupted season.
With Centrals it has one player selected this week in Scheer playing up forward. I would like to see her playing in the SANFLW as an on baller. The new Erin. With Sarah Allan I would like her to practice the Chelsea Randall utility role at this level.
West have Considine in the Centre and Biddell CHF wchich is good to see but where is Newman fighting to avoid de-listing have the Martin sisters and Stevie Lee run out of puff.
Norwood with Allen and Rajcic a no show
WWT with Forth playing on ball (good) I would like to see Metcalfe as the Number 2 ruck. Prove you can rest in the forward line and act like a key forward.
North miss their dynamic Midfield from 2020 in Hatchard and Woodlands
South have McKinnon and Whitely back in their regular positions. No Munyard or Charlton to help.
She played a really unselfish role for the team I thought this year, running up and down the wing, forward and back being that link player very Tom Lynch-esque also more similar to how she played her junior football. Thought she played her role how the coaches wanted her too whether or not they got that right you can probably debate.Jones was pretty poor this season, to be honest. Has her moments but not quite enough of them and has at least one brainfade each game. I haven't quite worked out what position she is supposed to be in yet. The talent is definitely there, just didn't quite put it all together this season.
SLT at #5 is surprising to me too, but to be fair she had a few very good games. Might be a case of her racking up the points in those good games.
Marinoff and Hatchard being neck and neck, with Allan and Phillips one rung below sounds pretty much correct to me.
Yeah SANFL just transferring everything so it all runs through them through their pathways, knew it would happen but they’ve certainly fast tracked things the last couple of yearsDiv 1 ammos back to 1 team with no reserves grade.
A lot of ammos struggling with 2nd teams.already
It's just money. It's not like there's a salary cap (I mean, there essentially is with the tiered payment system, but this kind of payment doesn't come into it). What do Saint Kilda care if they spend an extra hundred grand? If it goes well they'll get that back in membership and sponsorship. If not, they'll just put their hand out to the AFL.Anyone who pays that kind of coin for her needs their heads read.
Expect a cellar dweller like West Coast or the Sun's to pony up.
