Play in a simulated football league - find great movies and TV shows - play Werewolf - play video games (try our Minecraft server) - argue about politics - listen to music - keep up with science news - play board games - just gasbag - discuss true crime - and so much more.
sverik25 this line from the article posted a while back seems to give some hope. Just no details given.Plans are also in place to recruit established stars and bring home the players drafted from the Southern Saints this year.
That had me scratching my head. Geelong got given Pick 1 for the draft last year as the strength of their signings were lacking compared to North, who also entered the league. Now 1 week into trade and sign period it's looking like we haven't had much luck luring anything even close to a marquee signing. Which I kind of understand as its a semi-professional sport the players are heavily influenced by packages outside of football (cars, fulltime jobs etc), something I can't see us being able to match with our financial situation.I heard the Saints won the expansion club lottery , and thought our luck was finally in.
I then looked it up , and we have Pick 11 , the pick after AFLW Premiers Adelaide and the rest of the existing clubs.
I thought the AFL Draft needed work , but this AFLW Draft needs a lot more.
Rhiannon Watt and Ali Drennan both played for the Southern Saints in 2018 and were named in the VFLW Team of the year.So, for those who have followed these players, how are we looking? Like, could we be a force, or is this just going to be a get used to the comp year?
