just saw an interesting post on AFLW main board, bit of Nostradamus thrown in for sure
Have heard Hawk's coach Bec Goddard has big raps on Tessa Lavey, but doubt Lavey would entertain leaving
Bec Miller to Sydney, yeah forgot she's originally from N.S.W, but again doubt that she'll leave
"Below is something not published in the Herald Sun, though it isn't any less accurate than numerous reports from previous expansion periods wherein Lily Mithen's move to Geelong, for example, was deemed a fait accompli."
"It is purely an interpretation of each club's priorities, in terms of signing players who are currently on an AFLW list."
"It is not a commentary on each player's intentions, nor does it address prospects who aren't currently on an AFLW list."
"ESSENDON are extremely optimistic about Georgia Patrikios playing AFLW football this time next year.
They hope to land her alongside Ally Anderson, Georgie Prespakis, and Ashleigh Riddell to form what some are calling the "GAGA" midfield.
If Patrikios doesn't come around, they will target Maddy Prespakis to lead the on-ball unit, but with some reluctance due to Carlton's preparedness to retain her."

"HAWTHORN are expected to hone in on the players Bec Goddard and list manager Mitch Cashion believe to be the league's most underrated.
This includes Tayla Harris, in whom the Bombers and the Swans are also very interested."

"PORT ADELAIDE will approach every player currently listed with the Crows.
In the interests of brevity, the "Others on the Radar" section focuses on South Australians who may be lured back to the Festival State.
The Power also plan to pounce on Chloe Scheer if she gets homesick at the Cattery."

"The SYDNEY SWANS want to build a squad around experienced leaders who can engage with their minds and their hearts, as well as unique individuals who exchange ideas, thoughts and energy.
They will particularly look to the GWS Giants' dramatic improvement in the second AFLW season as a blueprint."

Bottom line is they simply aren’t doing their jobs if they don’t target good players. Whether they go or not is another thing.
Reckon the Patrikios one has real legs though.
