AS the home and away season begins to wind up, many teams are starting to settle their weekly changes. However, some vital changes are still being made going into Round 14, particularly in arguably the biggest clash of the weekend, when the two ladder-leaders, Collingwood and the NT Thunder go head to head. All in all, Round 14 is shaping up to be another exciting round for the Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s Competition.

Returning from their Round 13 bye, the Mugars will be hoping to secure a few more wins before the season’s end.

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.

Team Selection: VFLW – Round 13

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.

Also coming back into the side are former Sandringham Dragon TAC Cup Girls Best and Fairest, Olivia Vesely and the consistent Sarah Last.

Team Selection: VFLW – Round 5

WITH many TAC Cup Girls players ramping up preparations for the National Under 18 Championships, it means that many have taken to the sidelines in round five. This leaves it up to the AFLW and Victorian Football League (VFL) Women’s talent to step it up and earn a win for their side. This round sees two top four sides go head-to-head at Box Hill while an historic Dream time clash will headline the weekend.  

HAWTHORN  v. COLLINGWOOD 

Round 5 – 02/06/2018 11:30AM
Box Hill City Oval

To kick off round five, two undefeated sides in Hawthorn and Collingwood will go head-to-head at Box Hill City Oval. Hawthorn will take to the field with an unchanged side following its bye last week, trusting previous form to continue their winning streak. On the other hand, Collingwood have made a few changes to make sure it put its best foot forward against the Hawks. The inclusion of Magpies best and fairest, Chloe Molloy is sure to bring some class to the side in her first game for the club. The Pies will also welcome back Sarah D’Arcy and Erica Fowler in place of Oakleigh Chargers pair, Hannah McLaren and Daisy Bateman. AFLW vice-captain, Brittany Bonnici will also take to the sidelines. Ally Bild will come in as the 23rd player, and former Oakleigh player, Sarah Cameron has also been named to make her debut in the black and white this weekend after impressing at training.
