Conway check in gives insight into the Lions’ Den

SPEAKING to the media from Brisbane Lions HQ yesterday, speedy Lion Sophie Conway gave those in attendance an insight into where things are at in the Lions camp ahead of Saturday’s AFL Women’s Grand Final. On the notion that making the Grand Final again is becoming a “habit” for the Lions, Conway said the aim […]

Erika from Eire living the dream halfway round the world

THINGS have changed pretty dramatically in life in the last 12 months for Roo Erika O’Shea, going from a young Gaelic football star in Cork to a fully fledged AFLW player on the verge of her first grand final. O’Shea said that coming across to Australia as a 19-year-old was not easy, but the Kangaroos […]

Modest Mon reflects on it all

RICHMOND star Monique Conti made plenty of history last night, becoming the first Tiger to win the AFLW Best and Fairest and become the highest voted winner of the award in the process. However, humble as ever, she said with a laugh that “it doesn’t sound true”. “It’s pretty cool. I never thought I’d be […]

Grateful Goss taking every opportunity as it comes

EVERY player’s journey to the AFL Women’s is unique, and Carlton star Lily Goss is no different. Goss describes her footy journey thus far as “a pretty strange one”. Having limited opportunities to play the sport growing up because of the lack of teams close to where she grew up in Melbourne’s inner east, Goss […]

Pride Round proves a power for AFLW’s most important stakeholder

PRIDE Round returns to the AFL Women’s for the final weekend of Season 8. The annual fixture has become an important one for players, clubs and fans alike.

Kelly’s ship back on course after big 18 months

ST Kilda’s Grace Kelly has been through a lot over the past two years, but things are back on track for the Irishwoman in her AFLW career. Originally recruited to West Coast, she moved to the Saints after Season 6 but was forced to sit the whole of Season 7 out due to injury. She […]

Classy Colvin arrived at the light end of the tunnel

THE last 12 months or so have certainly had their fair share of ups and downs for Melbourne defender Gabby Colvin, who returns to the AFL Women’s tonight after tearing her ACL just before Season 7. “It’s been pretty tough,” Colvin said, talking about the last year. “Obviously anyone with a long term injury will […]

Marvellous Mackin makes memorable debut

MELBOURNE’s newest Irish recruit Aimee Mackin finally got her chance to debut on the AFL Women’s stage over the weekend, and certainly made an impact in the Dees’ win over the Hawks. Speaking post-match, Mackin was happy she had finally made her debut, and did so in a win. “I think once you get the […]

Brown best afield in back-to-back triumph

YOU could hardly write a better script for Will Brown to end his top-age campaign. Having played a hand in Sandringham’s 2022 flag, he was named captain this year and skippered his side to a second-straight Coates Talent League title. No less, he was also the best player afield with three goals. As one of […]

Dragons not taking Ranges lightly in flag defence

SANDRINGHAM Dragons will play off for back-to-back Coates Talent League premierships when they face Eastern in today’s Grand Final at IKON Park. Having taken out last year’s title in similar circumstances, the dominant Metro region has a tough task ahead of it to claim another. Regional talent lead Mark Wheeler has been there before, and […]
