Footscray might have some players by this date.
Last time we met…
Can we finally crack 100?
VFLW vibe is so good, would love for Draper to be high fiving everyone before the game getting them up and about.
Footscray have at least one player who can do some good stuff… if I read that jumper number correctly, that is Jemina Woods from their AFLW list.
Looks like Footscray might get lucky and get to play in score-slowing rain…
it going to be a slogfest in the rain.
Top stats players for Footscray are:
- #55 Lucy Schneider, 3rd for disposals in the league, 5th for kicks and handballs
- #53 Eliza Vale, 1st for marks and 3rd for kicks
- #38 Jaimee-Lee Morrow, 4th for hitouts
Looks like almost all of the rain has been called forward to Friday overnight.
Then a bit of wind forecast to dry it out before the game.

FFS Gardner. Stop breaking yourself!
Little respect for Footscray with the two restings allowing two debuts, and dropping more than 50 games extra experience via Davies -->Appleby.
Teagan Williams (VFLW DEBUT, 178cm Bendigo Pioneer KPP – has been a forward this year)
Stephanie Asciak (EFC DEBUT – played 3 games for Footscray last year, 165cm Western Jets midfielder)
Appleby (EFC/VFLW game #2)
Danielle Marshall will play her 25th VFLW game.
Footscray have made 14 changes to the team that lost 0-98 in round 1.
The 7 overlapping players are the previously-mentioned Vale/Schneider/Morrow, plus Barnes/Purcell/Sandral/Christgoergl.
AFLW-listed (they had none of them in round 1):
- Naomi Ferres (small defender)
- Jemina Woods (key forward)
- Britney Gutknecht (midfielder)
Top-ups (not on AFLW or VFLW list):
- T Delgado
- J-L Speakman
- L Elliot
- M Marks
- T Meier
- L Condon
- P Ryan
- M McLeod
The eight above are NAB League players. Speakman (Rebels) and Elliot (Jets) are not on their AFL match centre long list. McLeod is a forward and has been nicked from our Cannons – guess we can’t complain when we are playing Jet Asciak.
7+3+8≠21 – aah, whatever, I’ll look at it later.
From a conveniently-timed article:
Laura Elliott (Western Jets/Vic Metro)
The reliable intercept defender has pieced together a terrific NAB League Girls season with some unbelievable games. Though the Jets quite often had it up the other end of the ground, Elliott showed her wares and earned a Vic Metro place. Against Vic Country there was not a great deal to do, but in the more challenging games against Queensland and South Australia, Elliott averaged 11 disposals, three marks, five tackles and three rebound 50s. Someone who might fly under the radar due to having two Top 5 Victorian players in her side, but Elliott has plenty of upside with terrific hands and reliable skills.
What’s that? No rain tomorrow?
