The inaugural season of the AFL National Women’s League saw some brutal contests, some soaring speckies and hundreds of eager fans turned away at the gates. Within a matter of weeks, a cohort of superb Australian athletes rocketed from relative unknowns to household names. The season spurred a revolution in girl’s and women’s participation in amateur Australian Rules competitions across the country.

For the AFLW 2018 season, the talent pool has deepened, competition has intensified and the stakes are higher, following the league’s first trade and draft period. The women’s game is evolving rapidly, trialling new rules and refining playing standards.

On Saturday March 24 the top AFLW teams will face off for the 2018 premiership. The following Tuesday, this lineup of experienced Australian Rules journalists (and fans) will unpack the highs and lows of the year in women’s footy. They’ll share their insights and predictions on the future of the game ... and possibly their club songs, depending on the outcome of the Grand Final.

This event will be Auslan interpreted.

Readings will be our bookseller at this event.
