But good to see the youngster in McEvoy named in our bests
The accuracy is costing us but good grounding for some of the younger players and for the AFLW players to pass on knowledge.Was keeping an eye on the scores during the afternoon. Seems there was a breeze going to one end of the ground. Melbourne Uni were leading 3.0 to 1.1 at 1/4 time, we kicked 3 goals to one ourselves in the 2nd term to go into half time a point ahead. Melbourne Uni kicked the only 3 goals of the 3rd term to go into the last change 17 points up, but unfortunately we could only manage 3 behinds in the last quarter.
The result leaves us a game and 30% behind Melbourne Uni with 2 games to go, so it is highly unlikely we could make up that percentage deficit, and need to hope Melbourne Uni somehow lose to NT Thunder at home in a fortnight. The other hope is Hawthorn, who are currently 6 points clear of us, losing both their games to the top two sides in the coming weeks.
Great to see - I started second guessing if she was on our vflw list or not.
I'm well aware of the impact of the wind there and the comment was more tongue in cheek than anythinghaha that's funny it's always windy only place I have ever played footy..were you can kick forward but goes over your head lol...can tell you it did not get canned from the wind
well if you ever strike up the nerve to strike up a conversation tell 'er CC's a big fan - seen a couple of interviews with her on the official Geelong site and and she came across really well, articulate and very nice.Great to see - I started second guessing if she was on our vflw list or not.
I was at the Geelong Supercats NBL1 final last Sunday and she was there, I was considering whether or not to ask her if she was going to line up this winter or not but decided against it.
I've often chatted with Anna going back to her basketball days - both my mum & I follow the basketball and there was a period of time when my mum would see her at like 7/7:30am when they would be having coffee at the same place. At that stage Anna was teaching & a group of them would car pool in the mornings - she's a friendly, chatty person.well if you ever strike up the nerve to strike up a conversation tell 'er CC's a big fan - seen a couple of interviews with her on the official Geelong site and and she came across really well, articulate and very nice.
like I've said to you previously C09; she was probably my first favourite of the Geelong women's team when they joined the VFLW comp in 2017; she was one of our very best.
Ha that is awesome cats_09, wrapt that AT knows we have her back on the Cats BF board!Cursed_Cat, Anna made it to the basketball game and I had the opportunity to chat with her. Because the football is back up in the same region tomorrow, she wasn't sure she would be at the basketball tonight but then decided to do the double trip.
First question from Anna when I saw her was, "hi, how are you?". Then had a chance to chat a little later.
Told her about the online forum and that she's a favourite of the posters who follow the AFLW & VFLW. Let her know about you, that we have a mad keen fan from Queensland and that she's a favourite from when the team first started and praise for the way she presents herself in videos & interviews.
She was really happy to hear that, and especially that people are actually watching those things.
Anna mentioned it's been 6 months she's been out and she'll now get 2 games - so we can expect her in next weeks team also.
Think I read back issues and I know it's something that troubled her at times during her basketball days
Good point, hopefully she is in exactly the position you speculate - I've had ongoing back issues myself and they are such tricky things to manage.Think I read back issues and I know it's something that troubled her at times during her basketball days
Hopefully it's something manageable and not going to be a major issue going forward.
I know that both the AFLW & VFLW are semi-professional (if that) in terms of the women being able to be full time footballers & making that the full focus, but with Anna working for the GFC, I wonder if that's helping things such as treatment & management of any issues. Surely it means she has a better chance access to the clubs facilities and even medical staff if/when required, versus working externally with access only during contact hours or playing basketball but having a full-time job outside of that
