2023 AFLW Draft preview: Hawthorn

SECOND-YEAR club Hawthorn showed marked improvement throughout the 2023 season, and though the Hawks did end up finishing 14th with three wins, were able to take advantage of the club’s ties with Eastern Ranges. Hawthorn picked up three talented top-agers – including one of the best Victorian prospects – in an otherwise relatively quiet off-season […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: GWS

GREATER Western Sydney (GWS) Giants again had a season to forget, finishing 16th and winning just two of 10 throughout Season 8. The Giants did have some excuses, losing key midfield star Alyce Parker to injury and all-time leading goalkicker Cora Staunton at the end of Season 7, with Season 8 Rising Star Zarlie Goldsworthy […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Gold Coast

GOLD Coast would have been disappointed with its final game of the year, bowing out in the elimination finals against Sydney, but the Suns can take plenty from an improved season. The season not only brought a return to the post-season series, but a lot of change during Trade Period with three players coming in, […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Geelong

GEELONG came agonisingly close to reaching the 2023 AFL Women’s Grand Final, falling in the penultimate round to the eventual premiers. The success was close enough that the Cats did not need to make wholesale changes, keeping a relatively low profile over the off-season, with a one-in, one-out approach during the Trade Period, while moving […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Fremantle

FREMANTLE opted for experience over youth this off-season, by essentially deleting its draft hand, but bringing in some quality best 21 players. The Dockers held a top 10 pick heading into the AFLW Trade Period, but having secured a former number one pick, top-end midfielder and versatile veteran all of whom will strengthen the 2024 […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Essendon

ESSENDON brought in a premiership Dee, a top young talent and a speedy Sun as the Bombers look to build on their first ever finals appearance in the AFL Women’s. Though the red and black did have to move on a number of players, the Bombers focused on bringing in more experience over the off-season […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Collingwood

COLLINGWOOD was active in this year’s AFLW Trade Period as the Magpies looked to move up the draft order to secure a couple of top talents. The Magpies were without a coach throughout the period, with Steve Symonds departing at the end pf the season, but have brought in a few important players and set […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Carlton

CARLTON started like a house on fire, but ended the season with another disappointing finish, letting a golden opportunity for finals slip after dropping games to then-bottom 10 sides. The Blues showed some promise under new coach Matthew Buck, but were not consistent enough to take it up to the contenders in the AFL Women’s […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Brisbane

PREMIERS Brisbane might be basking on cloud nine after the Lions’ second flag in the women’s program history, but it did not stop them making moves over the off-season. Having lost quality players such as Emily Bates, Greta Bodey and Jesse Wardlaw over the off-season last year, there was no such forced moves, with instead […]

2023 AFLW Draft preview: Adelaide

MINOR premiers Adelaide could not quite get it done in November, bowing out in the preliminary stage after losses to grand finalists, Brisbane and North Melbourne. Despite missing out on yet another flag, Matthew Clarke and his troops remain a huge contender in the 2024 AFL Women’s flag race as the Crows approach another draft. […]
