They were the top ranked Hills side last season in a higher division.

Yes I thought it was odd that Nairne who struggled last year went into div 5.

Saw the first quarter against Kangarilla/Onka Valley a couple of weeks back and then was at Ironbank on Mother's day when they demolished Bridgewater by 15 goals

I was at the same Kangarilla game. They jumped them early that day.

My future DIL is playing & going ok from what my son tells me.

And looking at the result from Saturday night, they did the same to Mt Barker. Held them goal less until the last quarter.

After watching a couple of games last year and what I've seen of them this year, they are too good for Divvy 6

Change the topic from that picture :shock:


How good is the Division 1 competition? First full round completed and not much separating the top 4.

Looking like a very interesting season

As a new comer to SAWFL (and in particular D2) I've been really pleasantly surprised.

Standard is fine (and the gap between AFLW and SAWFL D2 doesn't seem huge) and the games are played in tremendous spirit and everyone involved is there for the right reasons.

Wish we'd done it 5 years ago (to be fair we tried)

Ironbank continued on their merry way in Div 6 with a very comfortable 129 point win over Kangarilla/Onka Valley

They make their way to Johnstone Park to take on the Murraylands Swans on Friday 15th June.

They are sitting 2 games clear of Mt Barker who lost to Aldinga last round.

I have a question for the SAAFL OR SAWFL Execs. Can a club that wants to start a sawfl club(has 18’s) can they start in Div 1.
Also say a club that has only 18’s and another div 1 club merges but becomes a Sawfl club can they start in Div 1 or do they have to start from a lower div.

Pretty sure they can. Fitzroy entered Div 1 this year despite never having had a women's side before, the league was aware they were keeping the majority of the WAWFC from the previous season.

I thought that was done because they weren’t allowed to be affiliated with a SANFLW club so they were allowed to stay Div 1 because of that reason. I could be wrong tho

perhaps making contact with The League is a better option than the half backed advice you will get from here :lol:

PAFC told PAWFC they could only play 3 home games at Alberton. As the club trained at Alberton last year they said they couldbt train there either due to tooo much traffic on Alberton Oval.

PAWFC trained the whole preseason at Swan Tce using the Ethelton Ground but due to issues with the change rooms (according to Port) they had to find a new ground to use. PAWFC looking to either stay as PAWFC or merge with a club and either try and stay in Div 1 or go to Div 2. A few clubs have shown interest to merge with the club so will see what happens from here.

Because PAFC told them they had to use their sponsors they were never allowed to get their own majopr sponsor. Now that PAFC have pulled their sponsorship to basically give them a ham sandwhich and a bag of chips the club doesnt have the money to continue unless they find sponsors willing to put money in and find a ground to play on.

It does make sense given the legs that womens footy is growing.

Not long ago the SAWFL was made up of Greenacres, Morphies, Christies Beach, Adel. Uni, Salisbury, Ingle Farm and possibly a few others, Port Adelaide and Central District had teams, neither played at their men's namesake oval and infact, Central District had nothing to do with the CDFC whatsoever, they were basically aligned with Elizabeth Football Club and then approached other clubs to see who wanted to take them over, it ended up being Angle Vale.
West Adelaide womens team was the only league named club to use their league oval.

With the SANFL now having a womens comp it has thrown a real spanner in the works to the existing clubs, with Westies changing their name and alliance to Fitzroy, Port doing the same it will pave the way for the league clubs to develop their own teams now.

Looking into it a bit more, the womens comp dates back to 1991 when the Thunderbirds first won the premiership.

I see North Adelaide, Sturt and the Eagles have previously had teams in the comp too.


I've had some form of involvement for about 10 years I reckon, Greenacres, West Adelaide and Morphies were the teams to beat from when I first stumbled across the league.
