Round 14 of the AFL Season was celebrated as Women’ s Round . Women support footy at every level not just in the wearing of footy jumpers , jerseys , guernseys. Players , supporters , sponsors , mentors , coaches , fitness staff , Â women are involved at every level . On the playing field ,Â the inaugural AFL Women’s Exhibition game was played , prior to the match between Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs Â . In the not to distant future ,it is believedÂ each AFL club will have a women’s representative side.
The beleaguered Bombers , dogged by a drugs scandal , beat WCE in WA , hoping to silence critics and appease fans . Sydney beat Carlton at home in the teeming rain , and Port Power beat the Pies . The Saints got thrashed by the Tigers , and Melbourne squeeze out a 3 point victory over the Dogs . Hawks , Crows and Cats continue to win , and Kangas annihilate newcomers GWS.
Great legend of AFL Footy , Richmond Tiger , Tommy Hafey was spotted at St Kilda Beach preparing for an Â early morning swim , last Sunday . His jovial reply , when queried on who would win between the Saints and Tiges , was ” Saints are pretty good ” An ironic response from the affable Richmond stalwart !
