Season 8 AFLW preview: North Melbourne

SEASON 7 was another season of ‘so close, yet so far’ for North Melbourne.

Preview | VFLW 2023 Round 11: One more chaotic month to go

FASTER than Nyakoat Dojiok out of a pack, we have reached the final month of the 2023 VFL Women’s season, and yet so little has been determined.

ROUND 8 of the VFLW season may signal the official start to the second half of the season, but there are certainly enough mouthwatering clashes to make people forget how quickly time is ticking away.

AFL WOMEN’S premiership contender North Melbourne flexed its muscles against Gold Coast Suns across the first three quarters to kick off the Roos’ season with a 26-point win.
