VFLW - Round 9 vs Pies @ The Hangar, 1:30PM Saturday 23 April 2022

Probably get a bigger crowd than the VFL, who are overlapping the AFL game on the Monday.

Vic Metro play QLD up there on Tuesday April 19. Then both VIC Metro (same squad???) and Country play on the 22nd.

So limited chances for NAB League top-ups this weekend.

No one needs a simple life. Some big outs and some big ins. Net win overall.

OUT: Heil (inj), Ayre (inj), Anthony (inj), Crook (COVID), Appleby (sick), Cornish (dropped)

IN: Marshall, Orritt (debut), MacDonald, Nalder, CBomb, and ALANA!

Drew Ryan (Bendigo Pioneers) is named as an emergency for the first time. And Gardner is almost back from injury.

Come on, Lennox, you’ve never even played in #11. Give it back!

This will, finally, be Nalder’s 50th game.

Kendra had played the last 52 games, only missing the first ever EFC game.

Federica hits the 25 game milestone.

Davies hits 25 for Essendon (55 overall).

Pies have 10 AFLW-listed players named:

  • Katie Lee - key defender
  • Nicole Hales - defender
  • Georgia Ricardo - defender
  • Matilda Zander - mid
  • Aleisha Newman - forward
  • Eloise Chaston - forward
  • Sarah King - ruck
  • Ebony O’Dea - mid
  • Demi Hallet - mid
  • Marla Neal - mid

Their deep forwards are DeMatteooooooooo and Dojiok (who will be entertaining, but I’ll back Marshall to win).

Officially two 21s were named for us, but I believe Nat MacDonald will be in 22. (for @Catherine_Lio who does the team sheets).


Marshall > Ayre
CBomb > Appleby
Nalder > Cornish

Barba and Macdonald = Heil + Anthony (historically; they are better forwards, but that is less necessary this year)

Orritt < Crook? (different heights and roles)

P.S. @PH_WARFRadio, the volume on your audio stream is rather low.

Another beautiful day, here at the Hangar!
