Our first expansion team - the Essendon Bombers - have brought together a very promising mix of elite talent and youth coming through the VFLW program. To help us with some insight into how the Bomber’s might line up in Season 7, we catch up with the recently drafted Amelia Radford to talk about her experience of being drafted to the new expansion club, and about the Essendon Bomber’s transition from the VFLW to AFLW.
