AFLW: Dees & Pearce Tipped for Double

Recommended Posts

Read the above article while breaking my fast.

Daisy is very articulate and the article provides some insights into what a well rounded person she is.

She is the type of figure needed in schools to provide an inspiration and role model to young people - young women in particular.

I just hope the outcome is more positive than Chanel 7s usual hooplah and build up on our medal prospects at every Olympic event they cover (see  "Britney Cox" et al) ?

The girls are certainly being talked up as flag favourites. Whilst we have a dominant Voss-Black-Lappin midfield in Paxman-Pearce-O’Dea I think the recruiters have done an excellent job this year. On the weekend we had

Kate Hore. 20 possessions (2nd highest on ground behind Paxman), 5 marks and 3 tackles. She only started playing footy last year after coming from a basketball background. Fair to say she has a lot of improvement left. Is just 23 y.o. 

Ashleigh Guest. Equal 5th highest possession winner for Melbourne with 17, 5 marks and a couple of tackles. Has come across from GWS after playing all seven games last year. 

Bianca Jakobsson. Also 17 possessions on the weekend including 7 marks and 3 tackles. In order to get Taylor Harris the Blues had to give something good away. In a complicated 4 way deal it would be fair to say we came out well on top giving up Deanna Berry for the former number 3 pick. 

Tegan Cunningham. Kicked two goals on the weekend on top of one in the opening round and three against the Pies in the practice match. Looks a natural forward with good hands, size, speed and athleticism. Would not surprise to find she wins the AFLW goal kicking this year. Was brought in with the number 22 pick from basketball and could be anything. 

Erin Hoare. Early days but the leagues tallest player hasn’t looked out of place in her two games so far. Apparently loves a contest and the ruck should only improve with time. 

Yet to debut is our first pick last year, Eden Zanker whilst Maddie Guerin played in round one. Both are only 18. 

In summary we have added at least four girls who are already in our top ten players. Not bad for a team that only missed the GF last year by percentage.
