Gourley’s giant new dawn on the edge of history

Bulldogs’ blitz ends Seagulls’ dreams

THE Western Bulldogs will compete in the VFLW Grand Final for the first time in five years after they easily accounted for Williamstown in yesterday’s preliminary final.

Lin’s long career list not quite written yet

MAKING the AFLW is a huge achievement, but then getting delisted can be a huge shock to the system. That is the scenario Joanna Lin faced, having experienced both ends of the scale. Drafted to Collingwood in 2020, she played four seasons at the top before being delisted after the 2023 season. She said getting […]

VFLW Player Spotlight: Nyakoat Dojiok (North Melbourne)

ONE of the talking points of the VFL Women’s offseason was the substantial list changes that were happening at Collingwood, with just about every member of their 2023 squad list no longer at the club heading into 2024. One of those who found themselves a new home was lively forward Nyakoat Dojiok, who was just […]

Kangaroos cause upset to create history

NORTH Melbourne has created history for itself, defeating Williamstown by three goals to progress through to its very first VFLW Grand Final. The Kangaroos did not kick a goal for almost half the match, but that was after a six goal to one second term that really did the job for them. It was a […]

Bulldogs bounce back to move through to Prelim

The Bulldogs defence was the side’s strength, really restricting the Borough’s attempts to even get a shot away. It was tight, tough and it was congested early. The Borough were the ones doing much of the attacking […]
