Not playing on the mud heap in Norfcote!
The below are definitely outside chances to turn up this week, as they’re included in the squads (but not yet teams) for the AFLW Academy vs the Under 23s on Sunday.
Octavia DI DONATO
At least we’re losing players not yet playing: e.g. Footscray really can’t afford to lose Eliza Vale.
On a quick glance, Darebin have avoided losing anyone.

Thank you. I got desperate enough I found the VFL team to post instead.
NO LIKES FOR YOU.
This IN/OUT thing may take a few more minutes than usual.
I think that’s a return bout for Gardner; she has endless creativity at getting out of playing this year.
CBomb (the very common 1 week hamstring)
Morcom (arrogantly rested?)
Drew Ryan (DEBUT: 172cm Bendigo Pioneer mid/forward)
Darebin players in the Top Ten stats:
- Angelia Gogos (7th for tackles and 9th for kicks)
- Sally Lynch (3rd for hit-outs)
However… Gogos is out injured.
Nicole Callinan is top ten in the Coach Votes, so they still have some veteran midfield strength.
Holy crap. the spicy cough has taken us out!
Poor Eloise, can’t catch a break.
If you believe the AFL article just put up, Morcom was omitted rather than rested.
HEAD-TO-HEAD: Essendon 3-1.
At Preston: Never Met.
Streak: Essendon 3 (last loss 2018).
Last time: Essendon 7.10 52 def Darebin 0.2 2 (Bill Lawry, June 26, 2021)
IN: P Kearney, T Mills, C Weston-Sirett
OUT: A Caddy, A Mifsud, S Ruedin (omit)
The northern posts here are loose. Worried about the warmup banging into them!
Ryan is not big-bodied, but she’s no waif.
Only 22 warming up, including multiple emergencies.
Dicker, at least, is missing.
Correction: Dicker is here.
