Team selection: VFLW – Round 10

THERE will be some close battles anticipated in round 10 of the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s season with the Casey Demons taking on Richmond and Carlton taking on Williamstown. Many teams have bought in AFLW heavyweights ahead of their clashes, making for some interesting clashes across the weekend.



Round 10 – 14/07/2018
Preston City Oval

Coming off a win last week, Darebin will be hungry for more when it comes up against the NT Thunder this weekend. The Falcons have made plenty of changes ahead of the clash with AFLW powerhouse, Lily Mithen, Molly Eastman, Hannah Mouncey, Tamara Olcorn, Genevieve Lawson-Tavan and Annalyse Lister returning to the side. Shree Fairchild and Lauren Jacobs have been named in after missing last week.

The NT Thunder showed all of their class and skill last week against the Cats and will be looking to do the same when they take on Darebin away from home. They have named two Thunder debutants for the game, who are in no way new comers to the sport, including AFLW premiership players Abbey Holmes and Ebony MarinoffCourtney Cramey, NTFL premiership player Sue Nalder, as well Marijana Rajcic and Justine Mules have also all been named in.

Round 10 – 14/07/2018
Deakin University – Geelong

After a disappointing loss last week, the Geelong Cats have made a number of changes to their round ten list. An exciting in for the Cats this week is Erin Hoare, who will hopefully reignite the team with her AFLW experience. She comes in alongside Emily Ramsay, Isabel Currenti and Jordan Ivey. Geelong Falcons premiership player, Tarryn Love has been named as the 23rd player. The Cats will however be missing AFLW talent Anna Teague, as well as Evelyn Dhamarrandji, Ruby Benham and Lara Williams.

The Southern Saints will be hoping to get back on the winners list this week when they take on the Cats. They will be going without AFLW Brisbane recruit, Lauren Arnell as well as Kate Macqueen and captain, Georgia Walker. In their place will be Sophie Bolding, Tiara Annear and Old Haileybury junior, Sarah Casey, who comes in for her first game of 2018.

Round 10 – 15/07/2018

Carlton will come into round ten with fresh legs after its bye in round nine. With only two wins to their name, the Blues have turned to the likes of Darcy Vescio, Sarah Hosking and Gabriella Pound to install some class and leadership into the line-up. Their AFLW experience is sure to be an asset for Carlton this weekend, however they are not the only ins this round with talented forward, Kim Cunico and two debutants also named. Former Richmond player, Georgia Fisher comes into the side while former Williamstown player, Jess Malouf will be going up against her old team.

For Williamstown, Jorja Rowe and Jenna Bruton both return from injury and Jacinta Reid has also been named in. Jasmine Garner will take to the sidelines this week with injury alongside Brodie Stevens who has also been named out. With few changes to the Seagulls’ round ten side, they will be trusting in previous performers to step up when they come up against Carlton’s strong list that boasts a host of AFLW players.

Round 10 – 15/07/2018
Henry Turner Memorial Reserve

The Western Bulldogs have named four changes to their round ten side. In their clash against Essendon, the Dogs will welcome back Natalie Gills, Rachael Gastin and Caterina O’Brien, as well as debutant Simone Ruedin. The Western Spurs junior will come in as the 23rd player. Looking for win number five on the trot, the Dogs will go into the match as favourites, however they will not be facing an easy fight when they take on the Bombers who secured their first victory last weekend and are sure to be hungry for more.

After their exciting win, Essendon will be backing their round nine list, with only one inclusion. AFLW defender, Tanya Hetherington has been named in and will start the game as part of the interchange.

Riddell returns for round ten alongside AFLW player, Jasmine Grierson, Kira Price, Kathryn Klatt, Hannah Ibrahim, Marta Cantwell and Emma Humphries. North Melbourne AFLW recruit, Sophie Abbatangelo will miss this week’s clash as well Alexandra Saundry and Aisling Tupper.
