Has anybody done Melb-Perth drive? Looking like it’ll be in a campervan. Any advice? Free places to camp?
If you have the time, take the coastal route between Adelaide and Melbourne. The Great Ocean Road speaks for itself, but the SA part through the Coorong and the Limestone Coast is beautiful too.

Have done the drive over a few times. Take your time on the east coast section between Melbourne and Adelaide, there’s a lot of great spots to drive around there. And again if you have the time when you get to Norseman go south to Esperance and along the coast back to Perth, rather than towards Kalgoorlie which is much quicker.

Port Augusta, or maybe Ceduna, to Norseman is a real slog.

We're definitely going through that way, but it'll be a little rushed as the missus has to fly back from Adelaide for work. The rest is solo. :)

Yep, been around Kal too often so Esperance will definitely be the port of call instead. :)

This. The drive across the Nullarbor is so remarkably mind numbing. Carbine Chaos, if you can take the scenic route its worth it for the views and to just keep your mind occupied and prevent white line fever

Well today was a great day.

My eldest daughter has made the 2019 WA State Academy 16’s Summer Program.

Loved her reaction too - she was absolutely ecstatic about it 😁

Looks a pretty full on 5 week program with fitness, skills, game play and education all part of the process.

Been pretty pumped all afternoon 👍🏽

These are the kinds of stories and impacts that trolls of AFLW don't seem to understand.

Chris Lynn getting a reality check from past players after his whinge about not getting selected in the Aus squad.

Here's an idea Chris, find some consistent form and you will play for Aus.

Was he whinging about not being picked or not given the courtesy of being told he wasn't picked before the media et al were advised? I thought it was the latter.....

Not being contacted, but policy is you only get a call if you were part of the last squad and have been dropped or you've been added to a squad.

Langer spelt it out to him last time he needed to improve his form if he wanted a recall apparently.

So he wasn't saying he should have picked just complaining about the lack of communication?
