Team of the Week: VFLW – Round 16

COLLINGWOOD, Hawthorn and Carlton all have three players each in the Team of the Week after their big wins on the weekend. On the other hand, every loser from the weekend only has one player in this week’s best 22, headlined by Kelly Thompson making her debut in the line-up.

The final home and away round gave fans plenty to smile about. Darcy Vescio kicking a season-high nine goals for Carlton to win the leading goal kicking award was a major highlight. She cemented her spot in the full forward position after her dominant performance against the Bombers. Hannah Scott was also tremendous for the Western Bulldogs, gathering 17 touches while pushing forward and kicking two goals, which proved pivotal in the Dogs’ four-point win over Darebin.

Gabriella Pound and Olivia Vesely both gained a spot in this week’s back line after both being instrumental in Carlton’s demolishing of Essendon. Bombers defender, Courtney Ugle has regained her spot after a two-week hiatus while Hawthorn’s Jayde Van Dyk is once again named at full back after a tidy match where she gathered 18 disposals.

Madeline Keryk starts in the midfield this week after an impressive 24 touches and a goal. A pattern that this week’s midfield has is that all players got forward and delivered with important goals, highlighted by Collingwood’s Jaimee Lambert kicking three and Hannah Scott kicking two for the red, white and blue.

Key forwards, Sarah Perkins (Hawthorn) and Kate Dixon (Richmond) helped get their team over the line with two goals apiece, and therefore earned a spot in the best 22 this week. Williamstown pair, Jasmine Garner and Jess Duffin also made their way into the side thanks to their sublime performances. In a change, Duffin was sent forward and delivered, kicking three goals, while Garner was also important with two goals. 

Round 16 was the final chance for some to gain a spot in the Team of the Week and there were many who staked their claim to come up short in the end. Collingwood’s Stacey Livingstone is one who is unlucky, as she kicked two goals from four scoring shots. Richelle Cranston is in the same boat as she was vital for Geelong in the midfield, collecting 25 disposals.

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.

The Casey Demons have made five key changes to their Round 13 team who will take on the Blues on Saturday.

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.

GEELONG CATS v. RICHMOND

Saturday August 4, 11.30am
GMHBA Stadium, Geelong

Sitting just inside the top four, Geelong will need a big win against Richmond, who sit with only three wins so far for the season.

Western Jets talent, Sharnie Whiting has also been promoted to the starting line-up this week after being named as the 23rd player in Round 11, leaving room for Maddison James to take on that role. 

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.
