Team Selection: VFLW – Grand Final

OVALS across not only Victoria, but also Australia have been graced by the presence of many Victorian Football League Women’s (VFLW) players this year. Many new faces have had their time in the spotlight and old favourites have continued to inspire. This weekend the two strongest sides, Geelong and Hawthorn will come head to head to battle it out for the premiership. Both sides have made a few team changes ahead of the big game.

 

HAWTHORN  v. GEELONG CATS

Sunday, September 23, 12.30pm
Etihad Stadium, Docklands

After defeating Collingwood in the first round of finals, Hawthorn has had the benefit of a week off going into the premiership match. However, AFLW star and former Box Hill VFLW captain, Melissa Kuys will miss the match, still suffering from injury to her achilles from the first round of finals. Similarly, Dianna Haines will miss out this week with an injury to her medial ligament. Coming in to fill their shoes is Olivia Flanagan, who will come in for her first game since Round 15. Flanagan suffered a hamstring injury earlier in the season and has now been given the green light to take to the field. Emily Gilder is another important inclusion this week and has been named on the interchange bench. Her consistent goal kicking this year is sure to bolster Hawthorn’s forward line. Ellie Macdonald has also been selected and will start in the midfield in the Grand Final.

The Cats might not have had a week’s rest, however coming off last week’s victory over the Pies, they are sure to have some momentum behind them. With a ‘don’t fix what’s not broken’ mentality, Geelong has made only one change this week, bringing in Nina Morrison. The Vic Country representative, who was named Most Valuable Player in the AFL Women’s Under 18 Championships this year, will be an important inclusion to the Cats midfield.

Team Selection: VFLW – Week 2 Finals

THIS weekend’s preliminary final will see the triumphant Geelong Cats take on the Collingwood Magpies, who will be enacting their double chance. While they might have finished on top of the ladder after the home and away season, Collingwood fell short of the Hawks last week. On the other hand, the Cats will be desperate to continue their form from last week’s win against the Northern Territory (NT) Thunder. Both teams will be pulling out all the stops to secure a place in the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s Grand Final next week and they have each made team changes to suit.

23P: 70. J. Ferguson

In: G. Biedenweg-Webster, S. Livingstone, J. Ferguson
Out: D. Bateman, I. Ross

Stacey Livingstone will be an important inclusion to the Pies outfit this weekend. After missing Round 1 of finals, the AFLW star has been named in the back line, taking the place of Iilish Ross. Also coming in this week is Gabrielle Biedenweg-Webster who has been named on the interchange after being elevated from last week’s emergency list. Her tenacity for the ball and skill up forward will hopefully give the Pies an edge this weekend. Gippsland Power ruck, Jasmine Ferguson will also come in as the 23rd player. She takes the place of Daisy Bateman.

Geelong Cats:

B: 26. R. Pearce, 44. R. Goring, 40. A. Teague
HB: 34. A. McDonald, 25. E. Coventry, 1. J. Woollett

23P: 16. O. Purcell

In: M. Fedele
Out: N. Morrison

Confident with last week’s team, Geelong has only made one change in the lead-up to its clash with the Pies. Michelle Fedele is the only change to this week’s starting side but is nevertheless a crucial inclusion. The 2014 VFLW premiership player will be able to inject some finals composure into the team to help them bring home the win. She comes in for Vic Country representative, Nina Morrison. 

Team Selection: VFLW – Round 16

ROUND 16 marks the final round of the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s home and away season. While the top four might be locked in, teams will still be looking to finish strongly. Two debutants look to take to the field this week alongside an array of changes. The last round of the 2018 season opens with the Southern Saints taking on the Tigers.

WITH only two weeks left of the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s Competition, teams are fighting for a chance to play in the finals.

GEELONG CATS v. ESSENDON

Round 14 – Saturday, August 11, 4:30pm
GMHBA Stadium, Geelong

Geelong, who currently sits fourth on the ladder, will be in desperate need of a repeat performance of last week in Round 14. Ahead of the game, the Cats have made four changes, bringing in Laura Taylor and Isabel Currenti. Geelong has also selected two debutants for the match in Vic Country duo, Nina Morrison and Olivia Purcell. The pair impressed in this year’s TAC Cup Girls competition as part of the Geelong Falcons’ premiership team, and will look to continue to impress when they take to the field this weekend. Morrison in particular will be one to watch, as she was awarded the equal Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the recent AFL Women’s Under 18 Championships, so she will be a key addition against the Bombers.

Essendon has kept changes to a minimum this week, bringing in three inclusions. Erin Bult, Carlee Portlock and Alex Quigley have all been named while Alexa Madden has been called to the sidelines.

WITH five teams returning from the Round 12 bye, plenty of fresh legs will be ready to take to the field in the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s competition. Some teams have opted to make few changes, trusting that the week off has allowed the girls to rest, while others continue to make lots of alterations. Round 13 sees some new faces, some important re-inclusions and the prospect for plenty of good football, kicking off with the Casey Demons and Carlton.

 

CASEY DEMONS v. CARLTON

Saturday August 4, 10:30am
Casey Fields, Cranbourne

The Casey Demons have made five key changes to their Round 13 team who will take on the Blues on Saturday. After being sidelined last week, Demons fans will be excited to see AFLW player, Claudia Whitfort back in the mix alongside Catherine Phillips and Kasey Guttridge. While recent recruit, Talia Radan has been named out this week, another recruit for Melbourne’s 2019 AFLW team, Maddison Gay, arriving from Carlton’s AFLW team, has been selected for her first game in the red and navy blue. Dandenong Stingrays product, Georgia Gourlay has been named as the 23rd person.

Coming off a big win last week, the Blues will be looking to continue to prove themselves in what should be a tight contest between eighth and ninth on the ladder. Carlton have selected four inclusions highlighted by AFLW talents, Reni Hicks and Alison Downie. Also coming back into the side are former Sandringham Dragon TAC Cup Girls Best and Fairest, Olivia Vesely and the consistent Sarah Last.

Once again, NT Thunder has made plenty of changes to accommodate for the travel to Williamstown this weekend. Highlighting the inclusions are vice-captains, Sally Riley and Lisa Roberts as well as influential forward, Jessica Sedunary who has so far kicked 14 goals for the season with no sign of stopping. The Thunder will also be re-injecting some experience this week with Dayna Cox, Courtney Cramey and Anne Hatchard all being named in. Also in this week are Jasmyn Hewett, Stevie-Lee Thompson, Georgia Bevan, Sam Barnett, Katie Streader and Jordann Hickey.

Team selection: VFLW – Round 12

ONCE again, multiple changes across all teams makes for an interesting round of football in the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s competition. Young guns continue to re-emerge following their Under 18 championship commitments, while plenty of AFLW talents cycle through the teams. All in all, this makes for yet another exciting round of women’s football, kicking off with Carlton v Richmond on Saturday morning.

 

Carlton vs Richmond
Saturday July 28, 11:30AM
Ikon Park, Carlton

Darcy Vescio returns this week for the Blues when they take on Richmond at Ikon Park. She will be an important inclusion this week and hopefully her goal sense and expertise on the field will get Carlton across the line. This AFLW veteran comes in alongside the equally experienced ruck, Alison Downie and AFLW defender, Kerryn Harrington. The young line-up of Bailey Schultz, Isabella Gietzmann, Jorga Borg and Rene Caris headlines the inclusions for the Round 12 match, with Carlton looking to showcase its up and coming stars. Nicola Burns has also been named in.

North Melbourne AFLW recruit, Emma King and new Greater Western Sydney (GWS) forward, Christina Bernardi headline Richmond’s changes this week, both coming into the Round 12 team. Another exciting in for the Tigers this week is ruck, Alice Edmonds who missed last week’s clash against NT Thunder. These three inclusions take the places of Jacinta Louttit and Louise Bieniara who have been sidelined.

Southern Saints vs Hawthorn

Saturday July 28, 11:45AM
Trevor Barker Beach Oval, Sandringham

The Southern Saints will be desperate for a win this week after their three-point loss to Melbourne Uni in Round 11. They have made five changes ahead of game day including former Carlton AFLW player, Alison Brown, who will be a welcome addition to the side. Steph Binder, Shelley Heath and Sarah Gordon have also been named in. The final inclusion for the Southern Saints is debutant, Holly Bate who has been named as the 23rd player. After impressing at the recent AFL Womens’s Under 18 Championships, the Sandringham Dragons forward is an exciting addition to the team, and hopefully her previous goal kicking form follows through this weekend.

The Saints will face the Hawks this weekend who are coming off their Round 11 bye. After their week off, Hawthorn hasmade some key changes for Round 12. Pepa Randall has been welcomed back to the starting 22 this week, alongside Steph Carroll and Emily Mcilvena who have been elevated to the starting team after being named as emergencies in Round 10. Adelaide listed AFLW player, Sarah Perkins is another big in this week, and she will take the field with the Eastern Ranges duo, Mikala Cann and Emerson Woods who have also been named in.

NT Thunder vs Casey

Saturday July 28, 11:30AM
Traeger Park, Alice Springs

It will be a momentous day for Thunder when they play the first ever VFLW match to take place on TIO Traeger Park oval in Alice Springs this weekend. To suit the occasion, the NT Thunder will have extra reason to fight for a big win in front of their home crowd. The side has made 13 changes ahead of the clash with the Casey Demons including 18-year-old, Katelyn Rosenzweig who is set to debut as the 23rd player. She is a part of the Adelaide Crows Academy and was the leading goalkicker in the SANFL competition, making her an exciting prospect. After being named out in Round 11, captain Angela Foley will be a welcome addition to the side in one of many changes. Michelle Ellis, Jessica Allan, Sarah Allan, Jasmine Anderson, Kylie Duggan, Jenna McCormick, Tayla Thorn, Machaelia Roberts, Jemma Iacono, Tahlia Holtze and Kristy Irvine have also all been named in.

The Casey Demons have made five changes for their Round 12 side. Young gun, Darcy Guttridge, AFLW Academy member, Brooke Struylaart and AFLW star, Bianca Jakobsson will be welcome additions to the field this week. Shelley Scott and Georgia McLean have also made the cut. Scott comes in for her first game in the VFLW this year but not without plenty of experience, having played in Melbourne’s AFLW side. Former Adelaide player, Talia Radan also comes in for her first VFLW game, after being signed earlier in the month as a 2019 AFLW recruit for Melbourne. She will be joined by Gippsland Power and Vic Country defender, Emily Hauesler who will come into the side as the 23rd player. On the other hand, Casey will be going without AFLW player, Claudia Whitfort, as well as Amanda McDonough and Holly Bailey who have all been named out.

Williamstown vs Western Bulldogs

Saturday July 21, 11:30am
Williamstown Football Ground, Williamstown

The Seagulls will welcome back six players, including strong forward Sophie Van De Heuvel who returns from Vic Country commitments. Lauren Suleiman, Kayla Koropeckyj, Anna Saxton, Rebecca Dardengo and Sharni Dixon have also been named in the mix.

The Dogs have also made plenty of changes this week, with six ins. They have injected lots of extra talent into their line up for this weekend, welcoming back AFLW stars, Angelica Gogos and Brooke Lochland. They will replace the AFLW experienced duo who have been brought to the sidelines this week in Ashleigh Guest and Tiarna Ernst. Greater Western Victoria Rebels captain, Lauren Butler, Elise Muller and Brittany Wunhym have also been named in. Western Jet, Lauren Basto is the final change for the Dogs in Round 11 and she will make her debut in the red, blue and white when she comes on as the 23rd person.

Darebin vs Essendon

Saturday July 21, 12pm
Bill Lawry Oval, Northcote

Also making a handful of changes this week is Darebin, who will take on Essendon in Round 11 after a disappointing loss to the Northern Territory Thunder last week. They will head into the match without influential players Nat Exon and Aasta O’Connor. However, this lack of AFLW experience has been reimbursed by the likes of Lily Mithen and Jessica Dal Pos. Impactful defender, Grace Egan and forward, Kate Shierlaw have also been named in. Northern Knights junior, Marnie Jarvis will come in as the 23rd person, making her debut for Darebin.

Essendon have only made three changes ahead of their round 11 match up. The teenage trio of Molly Warburton, Danielle Ponter and Carla Rendelmann have each been named to take on Darebin while Aysha Ward and Bridie Winbanks have been named out. Despite Warburton, Ponter and Rendelmann’s ages, their tenacity and skill is well beyond their years which they will have the opportunity to prove this week when they search for Essendon’s second win.

Richmond vs NT Thunder

Saturday July 21, 12pm
Swinburne Centre, Richmond

Richmond will take on the Northern Territory Thunder this weekend from the Swinburne Centre. In preparation for the game, the Tigers have made four key changes. Trish Muller and Phoebe Monahan have been welcomed back to the starting 22 this week alongside two new faces, Jacqueline Radnell and Ruby Edmeades. Radnell is an exciting prospect for the Tigers, proven by her recent accolade for best on ground playing for the Central Victorian Football League Women’s representative team.

In their second consecutive away game, the Northern Territory Thunder have rested players. This has allowed for the inclusion of four debutants for their round 11 side. Ebony Miller, Madeline Keeble, and Stevie-Lee Thompson, all based in Alice Springs and Darwin are set to debut, as well as Rheanne Lugg who is based in Adelaide. PINT junior, Keeble’s speed and aggression paired with  Miller’s ruck skill, and Thompson and Lugg’s AFLW experience is sure to give the Thunder an edge this weekend. Eloise Jones, Emma Swanson and Deni Varnhagen will also join the squad this week after being rested.

Round 10 – 14/07/2018
01:00PM
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.

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.

CARLTON  v. WILLIAMSTOWN

Round 10 – 15/07/2018
11:30AM
IKON Park

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.

Team Selection: VFLW – Round 9

WITH both Geelong and the NT going down in recent weeks, the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s competition has been blown wide open. Collingwood is now the only undefeated side in the competition, but sides like Hawthorn are hot on their tails. To catch up, many teams have made some crucial changes to snatch a round nine victory.

 

CASEY DEMONS v. SOUTHERN SAINTS

Round 9 – 07/07/2018
11:30AM
Casey Fields

The Demons will take on the Saints this weekend in the first match of round nine. The Demons had a strong performance last week but are still to bring in some important new talent for this round. This includes former Vic Country Captain, Darcy Guttridge, who will return to the backline. Other ins include Eastern Rangers junior, Melanie Hogg who has been moved from the emergency list into the starting 22 for the first time this season. Jemma Turner will also pull on the blue and red jumper in her debut. Amy Harrison will also return this week alongside Taryn Orgill and AFLW Academy member, Brooke Struylaart. These players will have big shoes to fill, with AFLW talents, Harriet Cordner and Catherine Phillips named out.

The Saints have made six changes to their line-up following their bye last round. They have brought Kayla Ripari, Amy Silver and Ashleigh Allsopp from the emergency list to the starting 22, while Sandringham midfielder, Eleanor Brown, Dandenong Stingrays pair, Courtney Jones and Shelley Heath and Eastern Ranges duo, Charlotte Wilson and Gabriella De Angelis to the sidelines due to the AFL Women’s Under 18 Championships. Former Vic Metro player, Georgia Ricardo will also make her debut with the Saints this weekend and is in an exciting prospect for the club. Beaumaris junior, Sasha Long has been named as the 23rd player.

Round 9 – 07/07/2018
04:00PM (ACST)
TIO Stadium

Both the Thunder and the Cats will be desperate to get back on the winner’s list where they have sat for the majority of the season, after both suffering losses last week. The round nine clash will be held at Thunder’s fortress, TIO Stadium, and the side has made eight changes ahead of the game. Captain, Angela Foley has been named in the mix for Saturday’s game alongside former Adelaide Crows AFLW teammate, Tayla Thorn. Thunder has also named an exciting debutant for round nine, welcoming former NTFL Waratah and premiership player, Sharona Bishop to the field. Sharona’s endurance and running is sure to set her apart when she comes up against the Cats this week as 23rd player, as she has trained as part of the Indigenous Marathon Project. Also in this week are Kristy Irvine, Deni Varnhagen, Katie Streader, Machaelia Roberts and Jessica Sedunary.

The Geelong Cats have named three ins for their round nine team. AFLW ruck, Erin Hoare is a significant out for the Cats this week, as she will be leaving big shoes to fill. In her place, Rebecca Pearce will return to the side as well as Evelyn Dhamarrandji and Richelle Cranston.

Box Hill City Oval

Sitting second on the ladder, but only after a narrow win last week, the Hawks will be looking to secure another four points against Williamstown this week to remain strong finals contenders. For the round nine match they have welcomed back their skipper, Emma Mackie who should bring experience and leadership back to the line-up. On the other side of the spectrum, the Hawks will also be bringing in Whitehorse junior, Abbey Tanner, who will bring enthusiasm and fresh legs when she debuts in the ruck. Alison Dowler and Dianna Haines have also been named in.

Williamstown will be relying on plenty of new faces to deliver when they come up against the Hawks on Saturday. Redan junior, Jamilla Cranny, Caroline Springs junior, Krystyn Raymundo and Western Jets star, Sharnie Whiting will all debut this week, and the Seagulls have also welcomed Kaitlin Smith and Shae-Lee Murphy-Burke back to the team.

ESSENDON  v. RICHMOND

Round 9 – 08/07/2018
11:30AM
Windy Hill

The Bombers will take on the Tigers in a classic clash of rival clubs on Sunday. The still winless Essendon will want to do some soul searching now that the halfway mark of the season has been surpassed. The Bombers have made four changes going into round nine, bringing in Irena Malliaras, Chloe Laan and Alex Quigley. Oakleigh Chargers ruck, Bridie Winbanks has been named as the 23rd player. Important key forward, Danielle Ponter will miss the clash due to the AFL Women’s Under 18 Championships alongside Elizabeth Kearney and AFLW defender,Tanya Hetherington, who have also been named out.

The Tigers have made a few changes in the lead up to the round nine game. However, contrary to expectation, Sophie Conway will not be able to make her Richmond debut due to rupturing her ACL at training. On a more positive note, Murray Bushrangers ruck, Sophie Damon will be debuting in the yellow and black. Molan is a versatile player who is an exciting prospect for the club. All-rounder, Jenna Colwell and AFLW talent, Lauren Tesoriero have also been named in.

It will be an especially exciting game for Elise Korteman,who will pull on the black and white guernsey for the first time. Gabrielle Biedenweg-Webster, Eliza Hynes and Rebecca Grant have also been named in, while Katelyn Lee, Paige Nash, Erica Fowler and Sophie Alexander have been named out.
