2024 SANFLW Player Focus: India Rasheed (Sturt)

TOP-AGE young gun and reigning South Australian MVP at last year’s AFLW Under 18 Championships, India Rasheed had herself some sort of game during Sturt’s impressive win over Central District at The Ponderosa. The midfielder/forward racked up 36 disposals and kicked three goals, of which 13 and two respectively came in the last term, helping […]

SANFL Player Focus: Ben Camporeale (Glenelg)

CARLTON father-son prospect Ben Camporeale started his top-age campaign in style over the weekend, racking up 31 disposals in Glenelg’s Under 18s win over West Adelaide. Playing in midfield alongside twin brother Lucas, the pair led all comers while rotating to opposite ends of the ground. Both Camporeale boys spent time training with the Blues […]

SANFLW Player Focus: Violet Patterson (Glenelg)

THERE is something black and white about the way Glenelg winger Violet Patterson plays, and it is not just her affiliation to Collingwood. Her father Stephen played 96 games and kicked 88 goals for the Magpies between 1995-2000, with the top-age Patterson an eligible father-daughter prospect. Though Patterson might not be the biggest or strongest […]

WAFLW Player Focus: Carys D’Addario (Swan Districts)

SWAN Districts young gun Carys D’Addario took control of the midfield against Peel Thunder en route to a best on ground performance in the Black Ducks’ 63-point win. The bottom-ager was steadfast through the middle and her game earned her our WAFLW Player Focus for Round 2. D’Addario is a strong inside midfielder who has […]

SANFLW Player Focus: Jasmine Evans (Central District)

GOALSNEAKS are consistently among footy fan favourites and Jasmine Evans is exactly that for reigning SANFL Women’s premier, Central District. The 18-year-old draft prospect needs few opportunities to make an impact and did exactly that in the Bulldogs’ Round 2 win on Saturday. Posted deep forward, Evans booted three goals from seven touches to back […]

WAFLW Player Focus: Olivia Wolmarans (Subiaco)

SUBIACO stormed to a 95-point thrashing over East Perth to make a statement on the opening day of the WAFL Women’s 2024 season. While there were no shortage of impressive performers, the pick of the bunch was bottom-age forward Olivia Wolmarans who booted six goals in the win, including three majors in the third term […]

SANFLW Player Focus: Poppy Scholz (Glenelg)

GLENELG kicked off its 2024 SANFL Women’s season with a 22-point win over North Adelaide on Saturday night, breaking through after a hard-fought first half. Right in the thick of the action was rising prospect Poppy Scholz, who played the interceptor role expertly down back. Scholz, the sister of Port Adelaide ruck Matilda, is a […]

Blackburn lifts Dogs to breakthrough win

IT has been a long time coming for Western Bulldogs fans, but the red, white and blue finally heard the club song post-game on the weekend, defeating West Coast to enjoy a much-needed victory. After going 0-8 to start the season in a year that has involved a horror run of injuries, the Bulldogs returned […]

USAFL Nationals Player Focus: Lindsay Eliasson (Minnesota Freeze)

THE Minnesota Freeze almost pulled off some history at the 2023 USAFL National Championships Women’s Division 1, but ultimately fell heart breakingly short, losing to the Golden Gate Iron Maidens in the final. One Freeze player who was arguably best on ground for her side in the match was forward Lindsay Eliasson. The former soccer, […]

Murder of Crows: Adelaide’s pressure sinks Suns

IN a season where there are four distinct contenders – with perhaps one or two dark horses – the gap between second and fifth was telling on the weekend. Adelaide, a side never too far away from success and in fact the most successful team in AFL Women’s history, put Gold Coast to the sword […]
