Season 8 AFLW preview: Melbourne

REIGNING premiers Melbourne basked in long-awaited premiership glory last season after having a series of so close, yet so far attempts at the AFL Women’s flag. The Demons defeated Brisbbane at Brighton Homes Arena in somewhat of an upset, going one better than their loss to Adelaide the season prior. Fast forward eight months, and […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Hawthorn

HAWTHORN took a little while, but eventually found its feet in Season 7 of the AFL Women’s coming from behind in Round 5 against Sydney at Punt Road to secure a nail-biting four-point win. From there, the Hawks went on to win three in a row – albeit against the other two bottom three sides, […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: GWS

GWS GIANTS had a really unlucky season last year, with the Western Sydney team having a host of inactive players that were unavailable in Season 7. An incredible six players – including one who replaced an initial inactive player – were all out due to injury. Looking ahead to Season 8, the GIANTS are in […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Gold Coast

GOLD Coast continues to make inroads in the AFL Women’s competition, falling six points outside the top eight last season. Though the Suns were not too far away, their percentage of 88 still left a little to be desired and showed areas of improvement. Looking across the Suns’ list, Gold Coast clearly has some incredible […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Geelong

GEELONG was a side that never looked out of the contest, with the Cats having some incredible defensive efforts in Season 7, then finding the secret to scoring after the first month. In the end, the Cats narrowly missed out on a top four spot, and then were bounced by North Melbourne in the elimination […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Fremantle

SEASON 7 was a horror one for Fremantle, largely due to its almost unbelievable bad luck with injuries. Though the Dockers managed to stabilise as the season went on, some disappointing early losses, combined with an ever-growing medical room meant they never really had a chance to challenge for the flag. Though Fremantle ended the […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Essendon

FINISHING the highest of the four Season 7 expansion sides, Bombers fans had plenty to cheer about from an inaugural season standpoint. Though it should not come as any surprise given the quality the Bombers loaded up on – both experienced and youth – Essendon still came through with the goods to win four matches […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Collingwood

COLLINGWOOD is building towards something special in the AFL Women’s after reaching the finals for a second consecutive year under Steve Symonds despite missing two of its best midfielders all season. Regaining in Season 8, the Magpies also have to overcome the loss of a trio of top-end talents as they strive to go deep […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Carlton

CARLTON comes into Season 8 of the AFLW a new-look and hopefully revitalised side having fallen short of finals for the last three seasons. We preview the Blues’ 2023 campaign, their first under new head coach Mathew Buck. TEAM LIST #1 Amelia Velardo#2 Jessica Dal Pos#3 Darcy Vescio#4 Keeley Skepper#5 Abbie McKay#6 Gab Pound#7 Tahlia […]

Season 8 AFLW preview: Brisbane

BRISBANE is a perennial contender in the AFL Women’s and though the off-season saw the Lions lose a number of quality players for a variety of reasons, expect last year’s grand finalists to be thereabouts again. We preview the Lions’ season. TEAM LIST #2 Tahlia Hickie#3 Breanna Koenen#4 Sharni Webb*#4 Caitlin Wendland#5 Jade Ellenger#6 Lily […]
