Is there any indication on how we will be putting together a list?

We will just have to pick from players not already listed with other clubs (i.e. leftovers of sorts)? Will we get additional picks at the draft? Will we have some license to poach (where AFL compensates) ala Gold Coast's (men's) introduction?

Both prior rounds of expansion allowed signing of priority undrafted Free Agents as well as uncontracted AFLW players.

Beyond a certain point expansion teams have had to trade for additional players - from memory Richmond did this with either Conti or Brennan.

Nothing has been announced for this round of expansion but it would be expected that this happens within the next few months prior to State League and underage seasons starting next year.
