Most notably, he wants his team to become aggressive both with and without the ball: a physical, high-pressure unit that plays free-flowing, up-tempo football.


"We started to see elements of both of those things in the VFL and we're building on that now and it's really exciting," he said.


It's a style that requires greater running power and, to that end, Symonds was pleased that, in comparison to previous years, his players returned to training "in really good shape ahead of time".


The Pies also plan to unleash their huge additions, Davey and Molloy, in the midfield to address their contested ball issues. Molloy, who starred in 2017 at half-back, will also spend time in attack.


"We want to be as flexible as we can but we envision Chloe playing midfield/forward, and it gives us great flexibility with (reigning club champion) Jaimee Lambert able to do the same thing," Symonds said.

How do you stop people from attending vic park?
They fairly extensively fence the venue for AFLW matches, so I assume that will be extended around the whole perimeter. I doubt they can close all external vantage points though. Olympic Park with the banking would be even harder.

Yeah funny that. You have to give it time, not every team is gonna de dominant when they enter the comp.

Richmond went out and poached big stars from other teams. Eagles raided Fremantle's list yet need assistance? All the whole, the two other expansions in Suns and Saints, they both just developed from state leagues. Just shows there is ways to go about it. Develop players.
