With the majority of women’s competitions around Australia already underway, there is plenty to catch up on from leagues in Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory.
The Queensland Women’s Australian Football League and Queensland Women’s Amateur Football Association competitions are set to get underway this weekend while the five Victorian Women’s Football League competitions begin next weekend.
WAWFL League – Round 2 complete
South Fremantle and Peel Thunderbirds sit pretty at the top of the WAWFL ladder after winning their first two games, the Bulldogs overcoming Claremont and Swan Districts while the Thunderbirds have claimed wins over East Fremantle and Coastal Titans by six and one point respectively. Coastal Titans and East Fremantle have each claimed one win while Swan Districts has made a winless start to its premiership defence. Claremont is also without a win, sitting in sixth on percentage.
WAWFL Reserves – Round 2 complete
Coastal Titans, Mt Lawley and South Fremantle have each claimed two wins to start the season with the Titans sitting on an impressive percentage of 1300% after the first two rounds. East Fremantle and Peel Thunderbirds sit on one win and one loss while Joondalup, SNESA Angels, Claremont and Swan Districts are yet to get on the board, though Joondalup and Swan Districts have only played one game each due to the bye.
SAWFL Division 1 – Round 2 complete
Morphettville Park is the only team in the SAWFL to claim two wins with two comfotable victories over Central District and Greenacres, and West Adelaide kicked off its season with a 96-point belting of Central District after sitting out with the bye in round one. Greenacres has claimed one win and one loss to start the year while Central District and Ingle Farm are without a win, though Ingle Farm had the bye in the second round.
SAWFL Division 2 – Round 2 complete
The Roos’ great start to the season carried over to the second division as Morphettville Park topped the ladder with two wins after the second round. Salisbury and Modbury each have won win from one game due to the bye while Adelaide University and Pooraka sit at the foot of the ladder with two losses each.
SWAFL Division 1 – Round 1 complete
The first round of the season saw three teams stamp their authority with impressive wins over their opponents. Newtown took care of Macquarie University by 27 points, Sydney University showed its dominance by downing the Western Wolves by 76 points and UNSW/ES was much too strong for Balmain, running out comfortable 82-point winners and giving the Stingrays top spot on percentage after one round.
SWAFL Division 2 – Round 2 complete
Two rounds down and the Penrith Ramettes, Southern Power and Randwick City Angels all remain undefeated at the top of the ladder. Wollongong, Moorebank, UTS and Manly Warringah have all managed a one-win-one-loss start while Auburn, UNSW/ES and Gosford are still yet to claim their first premiership points.
ACTWAFL Pool 1 and 2 – Round 4 complete
Although four rounds of the ACTWAFL Pool 1 and 2 competitions have come and gone, very little footy has been able to be played due to competition byes and weather-affected grounds. Both rounds one and four were competition byes and all of round two was washed out in both divisions. In the one round of games that has been able to be played, Ainslie comfortably took care of Queanbeyan by 28 points, Tuggeranong showed its dominance over Anu by 119 points and Belconnen downed Gungahlin by 40 points in Pool 1. Pool 2 saw two extremely lopsided encounters with Eastlake thumping Molonglo by 172 points and Riverina blowing out ADFA/RMC Ewe by 192 points.
