Round 3, 2020 WAFLW Team Selection

Friday, July 31, 2020 - 12:01 PM

Saturday afternoon is set to be a grudge match, with the Swan Districts WAFLW side coming up against Subiaco for the first time since knocking them out of last year’s finals series.

Having been named as an emergency twice this season, along with strong performances in the Reserves, Renee Holwill has forced her way back into the women’s senior side.

Young gun Olivia Cripps has also been named and will provide great run across half back, as will the athletic netball/footballer, Courtney Lindgren.

With both teams having players with AFLW experience, along with some fast, young talent, this game is sure to be physical, quick and highly entertaining to watch.

Make sure you are there to turn Steel Blue Oval into a sea of black and white, this Saturday from 3:10pm

In what is set to be an intriguing battle of the bigs in the middle, rookie ruckman Stephanie Graskoski comes up against AFLW experienced ruckman Danika Pisconeri, full of confidence to show the veteran ruckman that she is one to be wary of.
