2021 VFLW International Player Preview

Australia

Changes to the configuration of elite women’s football in Victoria will for the first time see a full talent pathway program with the NAB League Girls, VFLW and AFLW competitions being played at the same time.


Ahead of Round 1 of the 2020 VFLW season this weekend we take a look at the international players that have landed list spots of five clubs.  In an open border situation with no Covid-19 issues, we could have expected more international talent in the VFLW.  Players such as April Lewis, Clara Fitzpatrick, Erin McLaughlin, and Jess Blecher are just a few who were on VFLW lists in 2019 who are not back in Melbourne to play.

Round 4 AFLW Wrap Up

Australia

After round four, only Fremantle and Collingwood remain undefeated. 

Collingwood showed the rest of the competition that they are a strong premiership threat after they made light work of North Melbourne. 

For the first time in Collingwood's AFLW history, they have had a 4-0 start to the season. 

The match of the round was the Brisbane Lions and the Adelaide Crows, the match went down to the wire and Erin Phillips at 35-years-old showed us why she is the best with four goals.

Phillips proved the diference in the match, as the Lions were unable to stop her impact in the contest.

An entertaining match and a match where the Crows were determined to show that they are still a force to be reckoned with after their reality check last week at the hands of the Dockers.

Dogs hand the Dees first loss of the season

Australia

Western Bulldogs recorded their third consecutive win with a 13-point victory over Melbourne at Whitten Oval on Sunday afternoon. 

It was the Demons first loss of 2021 season and the Bulldogs secured the Hampson-Hardeman Cup.

Dogs champion Ellie Blackburn capped off a terrific play slotting through a classy running goal at the start of the final quarter to secure the win over a flat Dees side. 

It was an uncharacteristic performance from the Dees and they would feel dissapointed about how their afternoon eventuated down at Footscray in the west of Melbourne. 

Up until the main break, Melbourne were their own worst enemy, as they had a lot of the ball inside 50 but they could not get reward for effort.

Dockers are the real deal in 2021

Fremantle Dockers signalled to the rest of the competition that they are the team to beat this AFLW season with the 30-point dismantling of the Crows at Norwood Oval on Sunday afternoon

The Dockers are now on a 10-game winning streak.

Heading into the match, both teams were undefeated at 2-0 and on paper looked like it will be a real clash of the titans contest from start to finish. But, it was anything but with the Dockers controlling the match from quarter time onwards. 

After this afternoon's performance, the Dockers are definitely the premiership favourites this season and are now the ladder leaders with a percentage of 225.5. 

Hard nut Docker Kiara Bowers was sensational finishing with 23 disposals, 15 kicks and 13 tackles (a game high).

Gemma Houghton continued her strong form of the season up forward with two goals from 12 disposals and Ashley Sharp in her first game of the season contributed two goals.

Western Bulldogs (6.6.42) v. Carlton Blues (5.6.36)
Friday, Feb 5th

Bulldog Danielle Marshall, #26, was omitted from the lineup this week. After spending a few games last year and round 1 stepping in for injured rucks, it has been a bit since she’s had the game-time to prove herself on the forward line. We hope to see her back kicking goals soon.
