Well if we cant have Georgia, can we go and raid FC again and get Egan?

Now that I posted the rules above, I want my 11 more POACHINGS!

(assuming quality to #14, of course)

Going back to the wrong-coloured stripe, apparently. That will require a trade or going to the draft, though.

A post was split to a new topic: Welcome to Essendon AFLW - Caitlyn Sargent

[Caitlin Sargent announcement moved to her own thread.]

Are we likely to get pick 1 in the draft Ella Roberts looks really good (WA )

I guess there’s a 1 in 4 chance?


No way the afl gives us the 1st pick when we are causing chaos across the league

Do you have reason to think she would nominate VIC as her destination?

A big query is when we will find out who gets which of the top 8 picks. The AFL might want to leave that till draft night, just for dramatics. If the best player available wants to go to SA or NSW they can KNOW who they are being drafted by – but not if they nominate for VIC.

just looked up a interview said she wants to nominate WA. :frowning:

“I’m definitely nominating to stay in WA,” Roberts told The Inner Sanctum .

“I just feel a little bit too young to just move across the country, so I’m going to nominate for WA.”

Despite being a Fremantle supporter, it won’t bother her where she ends up, so long as she can stay close to family and friends in her home state.

“I’m a Freo supporter, I’m the only one in a family of Eagles!,” Roberts laughed

No one tell Port Adelaide this whole thing has started.


ESSENDON: 6 signings (5 poached)
HAWTHORN: 3 signings (0 poached)
SYDNEY: 13 signings (4 poached)


(yeah yeah, I know Adelaide played a few more weeks than GWS)

We can sign up to 14?

Correct. There may be limits on how many can be stolen from individual teams (the AFL have not announced any) but that probably only matters for Sydney and Port.

Sydney’s early greater numbers reflect their lack of a feeder team – you can bet we and the Hawks have a stack of our own VFLW players in mind who would happily take the upgrade rather than walk to one of the other three clubs or risk the draft.

Also, sign Marshall already.

Would like Courtney from our VFL side in

Don’t know why we haven’t announced her yet

We only announced one in Nanscawen maybe once we are finished poaching the last few spots they will fill from the vfl side.

Hopefully because I honestly believe it might benefit us in the off-season with Hill again

The off-season’s most obvious move is now official - Erin Phillips committed to Port Adelaide.
