By the time Port get a license, SA should have enough home grown talent developed and coming through the ranks to be able to support two sides with success.


They’ll have a draft system in place by then.


They have a draft now.

They’ll introduce the same as the AFL.

Hard to see that happening for a semi-professional sport.. they're only really part time athletes still.

Didn't one of the Crows women return to the Crows after being drafted because she ran out of A/L?

Can't imagine employers being keen on their staff disappearing interstate for a quarter of the year.

The irony was she returned from Carlton to play against them and win a premiership.

The AFL are chucking that much money at it, it wouldn’t surprise me to see them being full time within a year or two.

Is this a sure thing? Because most of the former Port Adelaide girls squad and the coach are now at North Haven after merging.

Just judging by the names out there, and the support staff at SMOSH.

My daughter played against North Haven last weekend in her first senior game, she copped a fair bit, probably doesn't help looking about 5 years older than she is.

Don’t the Magpies have a team already playing locally?


We've put our hat in the ring for the next round of AFLW licences. Gold Coast, Richmond, St Kilda, West Coast come in in 2020 making it 14 teams.

Essendon, Hawthorn, Port and Sydney will be the only clubs without an AFLW side at that time.


Port did have a womens team that played in the SAWFL but due to Port not supporting the team (couldnt even play at Alberton) the club had to merge with Nth Haven. Funny thing is when the club was the major sponsor they said PAWFC couldnt get their own sponsors had to use the PAFC sponsors so when they tell the club in February they are no longer supporting them the club couldnt get any sponsors and had no money.

Shane Grimm has alot to answer for the treatment of the womens side. Absolute disgrace. when they were advised of an article that was going to be released he quickly gave the club 5k.

The only reason they went out there is because they want to play Div 1 not about being a feeder club to Port. Yes the reserves side will be mostly Aboriginal U18 girls (Bron Davey Aaron and Alwyn sisters kids are there) but that is the reason. From what I have been told only 3 players can be transferred to the club so they all cant go pay at SMOSH. Also not many of those girls will play AFLW. They think they are of a Div 1 standard but TBH they werent up to it

Can someone please inform me why Tayla Harris has a bronze statue? Because she was picked on by trolls? Going to be a lot of statues in the future if that is the case. Can't be for football ability or only Erin Phillips would get one. Serious question before i get told i'm stuck in the dark ages.

The Fed square one is only there for September. The permanent one is yet to be located.
Not sure what the big deal is. It's an iconic action shot that got everyone talking. Bit like Winmar lifting the jumper. I have no problem with them doing this.

Its a piss take surely. May as well put one up of Falau or Hunt, they did as much for the promotion of the game but did have more ability

I didn't follow the story very closely but the small bits I did see it seemed a bit of an iconic moment where pretty much all of Australia stood up for womens sports and said 'enough enough, they deserve to play'

TBH im not sure why people get so riled up about stuff like this, I cant believe there is statues of pigs in our mall WTF but im not losing any sleep thinking **** it should have been horses they have done heaps more for us than ******* pigs.

I don't care, either.

If you care, or it upsets you, it's more about you than it is the statue.
