Looks like North have decided to even up numbers inside 50 and they look much better as a result
(Please be warned: Self harm, family separation, and pregnancy loss discussed.)
So assuming Biddell and Ponter both play R1, nine players from this trial will need to go out the side. On what I've seen so far you'd remove Simmons, Dowrick, Button and Considine. Not sure yet whether Kustermann, Mueller and Kelly fit into the side. Waterhouse a maybe. Ward probably not.
- Prowse carried on her SANFLW form & showed is ready to play AFLW consistently but needs to be be given a chance, have always said she’s a midfielder but play her forward if you have to just get her in the team anyhow, if someone like Whiteley or Simmons plays in front her I’ll be disgusted.
The 18 AFLW captains have given their predictions for this upcoming year. At least a few of them tipped the Crows to make the GF this time, as opposed to just one (or possibly none?) last time. Melbourne are the favourites which is probably fair (they're my tip for the premiership this season).
The tips are in: Captains pick best team, B&F, Rising Star, more
Hatchard the second favourite for the league competition best and fairest behind Mon Conti, Marinoff also listed. For the lead goalkicking award the article oddly makes a point of saying nobody voted for Woodland, before showing a list where Woodland is indeed there with one vote. Someone else has picked SLT which makes me wonder if they've actually watched AFLW since 2019, unless it was Randall and she knows something we don't.
Interestingly Eloise Jones was the leader in the "which player would you recruit from another club if you could" question which is new this year, Allan and Randall also picked.
This was interesting, Jones on the top of the list on that:
If you could recruit another player from any AFLW Club who would it be?
