AFLW Rising Star Player Focus: Ally Morphett (Sydney)

WITH the return of AFL Women’s on the weekend comes the return of Rising Star nominations. Alongside star Eagle Ella Roberts, young Swans ruck Ally Morphett was one of the Rising Star nominees for Round 1 after an impressive performance in her side’s historic win over the GIANTS. Playing as the Swans’ first choice ruck, […]

Talent League Player Focus: Kayley Kavanagh (Calder Cannons)

RETURNING to the Coates Talent League Girls competition off the back of a MVP-winning performance for Vic Metro at the AFL Women’s Under 18 Championships, Kayley Kavanagh had a day out against the Geelong Falcons. The top-aged Calder Cannons midfielder brought her own ball to the match, racking up a season-high 35 touches in a […]

SANFL Player Focus: Kade Herbert (Eagles)

WOODVILLE-WEST Torrens midfielder Kade Herbert rounded out his stint at senior level this year with another promising performance on Saturday, albeit in a heartbreaking loss after the siren. Playing his fifth League game, Herbert didn’t shy away from the fierce contest with 20 disposals and a goal. The 2024-eligible draft prospect may yet feature in […]

AFLW U18s Player Focus: Kiera Whiley (Vic Metro)

WESTERN Jets skipper and AFLW Academy member Kiera Whiley is a good all-round player who can be a natural contested ball-winner, or slot onto a flank or a wing when required. In Vic Metro’s victory over Vic Country, Whiley almost exclusively played inside midfield, where she ran at an elite 80 per cent in both […]

VFL Player Focus: Ethan Read (Gold Coast Suns)

PLENTY of pathway prospects have earned berths at senior level this year, and Gold Coast Suns Academy member Ethan Read was the latest to be unleashed in the VFL. The 202cm ruck played with and against AFL-listed players as the Suns beat Sydney by 68 points on Saturday, and we put his performance under the […]

AFLW U18s Player Focus: Evie Long (Queensland)

SMOOTH-MOVING utility Evie Long produced a breakout game for Queensland against the Allies on the weekend, kicking three goals in four minutes during the third term. She was the catalyst behind the Maroons streaking away on the Gold Coast, while also having the 13 disposals, six marks, five tackles and two inside 50. 2023 AFLW […]

AFLW U18s Player Focus: Kiara Bischa (Queensland)

DEFENDERS do not often get the same credit as teammates further afield, but it is hard to deny that Queensland defender Kiara Bischa has enjoyed a great start to her national carnival. She has already had some massive roles – taking on top draft talent Lauren Young and potential top draft talent next year Ash […]

Rogers Cup Player Focus: Kaitlyn Roper (West Perth)

PRODUCING a four-quarter performance in West Perth’s Rogers Cup Grand Final win over South Fremantle, Falcons’ midfielder Kaitlyn Roper was among the standouts on the day. Teaming up with grand final MVP Mia Russo, Roper stepped up while Russo was being tagged in the first half, and took it upon herself to ensure the Bulldogs […]

WAFLW Player Focus: Zippy Fish (East Fremantle)

ONE of the top AFLW Draft prospects for next year, East Fremantle bottom-ager Zippy Fish announced her big game potential with an incredible best on ground display in the WAFLW Grand Final. In arguably the best – or certainly most important – performance of her career, Fish was simply dominant through the midfield and all […]

AFLW U18s Player Focus: India Rasheed (South Australia)

STANDOUT bottom-age prospect India Rasheed was simply sensational in South Australia’s big win over Vic Metro on the weekend. In what was the Croweaters’ second victory of the 2023 AFLW Under 18 Championships, Rasheed rotated between midfield and attack, doing plenty of damage both through her delivery and scoreboard impact. Her performance was the subject […]
