We will likely have more (3 is about our normal). But they often forget to tell us about the first one until afterwards!

A full (?) list (average of just over 3 games per team) has been published for the VFLM. Based on their publishing schedule in recent weeks, I expect the VFLW equivalent fairly shortly.

And it’s out, but acknowledges more games are likely to be scheduled.


  • Essendon v Port Melbourne (NEC Hangar, 11:00am, 4x18min)


  • Essendon v Fark Carlton (NEC Hangar, 11:00am, 4x20min)

Happy 40th birthday to Tash Hardy; OG vice-captain, runner, assistant coach at VFLW and AFLW level for us (plus at the Cannons and Norf).

Looks like we are losing one of our Assistant Coaches after just one practice game.

That’s brilliant! Good on her.

Sad news, but so pleased for Woosh. She deserves to get the best opportunities.

Darebin seem to enjoy stealing Collingwood’s players, as they have signed Olivia Storer, Amy Kane and Katelyn Lee.

That’s six Pies that have ended up there this year.


And the Pie captain (Bunker) is now their vice-captain.

The poverty club from Arden Street have announced that they’ve picked up Renee Tierney and Alana Barba from us.

Great pickups.
