Essendon Women’s VFL Team launch + first training session - have you Hird about Long?


Guess who

Essendon Womens team — possibility (2015 thread)

Wowee!! Now I’m actually spewing we didn’t get the AFLW licence.


Can we let our imaginations run wild here? Can we read into this that Steph Hird will also pull the boots on for the women’s team?


I think that’s the general idea.


Gutsy effort from Steph if so. The Hirds must be one tough family. Hope all supporters get right behind her.


Would be amazing to have Steph running around for EFC :).


The best of the kids.

I will never get bored of posting this.


Are they in this shot?


Steph is in this photo, kneeling, second from left. I think Michaela is standing behind her to the left.


You would be correct there… :slight_smile:


JIC there was still any doubt … .


She marks at the highest point.


Not that the boys weren’t trying to!


Hi EFC hi.


Michaela Long.


The Hird’s :heart:


Daughters of two premiership players and of two Norm Smith medallists.


You know you’re old when you see Steph hird like that. There was a chance hirdy was going to miss the 2000 prelim because she fell ill and could have died



That’s a very heart-warming piece of news.

All the very best to the both of them, and the team as a whole.
