2023 WAFLW Team of the Week: Round 2

SUBIACO’S impressive performance over Swan Districts has seen the Lions fill up 25 per cent of the Rookie Me Central WAFL Women’s Team of the Week for Round 2. With the results across Round 2 largely one-sided, the winning sides made up 19 of the 24 players in the overall squad, as Claremont (five) and […]

WAFL Women’s Player Focus: Evie Cowcher (Peel Thunder)

IN JUST her second WAFL Women’s game, Peel Thunder double bottom-ager Evie Cowcher produced some jaw-dropping numbers as she bravely helped defend for Peel Thunder during an 18-point loss to reigning premiers Claremont. Undoubtedly the scoreline would have been more lob-sided without Cowcher there, as the 15-year-old was tasked with the kickouts, but also provided […]

WAFLW R2 wrap: Tigers go it alone on top after Thunder strike

CLAREMONT is the sole side to have picked up all eight points this WAFL Women’s season following a Round 2 victory over Peel Thunder. The Tigers, who were bolstered by a host of experienced names, were too strong for a young Thunder side, but failed to fully capitalise on their dominance with an inaccurate scoreline […]

Preview | WAFLW R2: AFLW Academy reps return

WESTERN Australia’s two AFLW Academy members are back in their respective sides for Round 2 of the WAFL Women’s, as the third – Kaitlyn Srhoj – unfortunately misses due to injury. We take a look at the four games played across two days this weekend including three tomorrow.

WAFL Women’s Player Focus: Olivia Crane (Subiaco)

HAVING a debut performance to remember, double bottom-ager Olivia Crane became our first WAFL Women’s Player Focus for 2023. The 2007-born Crane played in defence and was outstanding both in the air and at ground level, possessing a number of impressive draftable qualities already despite having three years left in the system until being draft-eligible. […]

Preview | WAFLW R1a: History set to be made

FOR the first time in WAFL Women’s history, a Perth side will earn premiership points over the weekend when Round 1 of the 2023 season kicks off. Reigning wooden spooners West Perth went winless in its debut season last year, but face newcomers East Perth tomorrow, meaning at least one side will walk away with […]

“Spark has been lit” for hungry Tigers

CLAREMONT is ready and raring to defend its WAFL Women’s premiership when the 2023 season kicks off this weekend. A ground change from the club’s home deck of Revo Fitness Stadium on Saturday to Pentanet Stadium on Sunday due to ongoing renovations with lights at the Claremont venue, has not dampened the spirits of the […]

“Very different” Swans want to challenge again

SWAN Districts might be going through a “developmental phase” according to coach Adam Dancey, but he believes there is no reason why the young side cannot challenge for a WAFL Women’s flag. The reigning preliminary finalists have seen a lot of experience turned over during the off-season, but it gives some fresh faces chances to […]
