The GIANTS’ AFL Women’s squad will take on last season’s runners up, the Brisbane Lions, in a practice match at the WestConnex Centre next weekend.

It will be the first opportunity for GIANTS members and fans to see the GIANTS’ new faces in action when they take to the field on Saturday, January 20 at 10am.

There will be a host of players likely to make their first appearance in orange and charcoal including star recruit Alicia Eva and Irish import Cora Staunton. 

It’ll also be coach Alan McConnell’s first game in charge of the new look squad having taken the reigns over the off-season.


The Lions, who lost the inaugural AFLW Grand Final to Adelaide by six points, will be led by their star All Australians Sabrina Fredrick-Traub, Sam Virgo and Kate McCarthy.

The GIANTS’ team store will be open for fans to stock up with the 2018 COAR AFLW range available, with the membership team also on hand to answer enquiries and sign up fans.

Entry to the game is free and limited food and drink will also be available for purchase from the GIANTS café. 

It will be the GIANTS’ only practice match before their 2018 NAB AFL Women’s season gets underway against Melbourne on Saturday, February 3 at Casey Fields in Melbourne. 

A week later, the GIANTS will host Carlton under lights on Friday, February 9 at Drummoyne Oval.
