Show Notes


The Eagles faced a lot of challenges in Season 6 with Covid-19 travel restrictions, numerous injuries and a new coach at the helm. Plus, a raft of player movement following Season 7 has the Eagles set for a shake-up. We’re joined by midfielder Hayley Bullas to talk through some of the challenges involved in making the leap to AFLW level, and hear some of her fantastic insights into West Coast’s season ahead.


Episode Guide

0:24 Season 6 was one to forget, but an unchanged leadership & coaching line up is a vote of confidence for the ladder climb ahead.

2:12 Hayley chats with Jono and Will about her time with the West Coast Eagles, the offseason movements at the club so far and what we can expect from some relevant Fantasy players this season.

21:28 Defenders – a mix of expansion club movements and retirements means WCE is rolling out a new look backline. Surprise draftee Zoe Wakfer is likely to debut early in the season, whilst Will thinks Aisling McCarthy could present a bit of value with her discounted price.

24:21 Midfielders – Bella Lewis and Dana Hooker are two that might bounce back after quiet seasons (by their standards); captain Emma Swanson might fly under the radar despite being the 7th highest fantasy scorer in Season 6.

30:38 Forwards – the form of Ella Roberts in the WAFLW has Will very excited to have her in his team.

32:29 Rucks – Hayley is positive that Sarah Lakay is ready to ruck solo with her physicality; draftee Lauren Wakfer will sadly miss Season 7 with an ACL injury.
