Anybody heard word on competition structure? Looks to me like we're gonna have 23 teams, so am guessing they're gonna have two conferences. Surely there's some word on the street?
Announced today that Port Melbourne will be fielding a team in VFLW in 2021 taking over the license that had belonged to Richmond.
As part of this an agreement has been reached between Port Melbourne and Richmond that Richmond AFLW players not playing that week will be able to play for Port Melbourne similar to agreement that Williamstown and Adelaide Crows had this year before season was derailed by Covid.
Their home games will be played at North Port Oval.
The season will start in Early February inline with AFLW and NAB League Girls Competitions.
With the AFL expected to announce the new competition in the next fortnight its time for the ever popular topic of Port Melbourne player movements to return.
A big loss to begin with - Jarryd Blair is off. Had a great season with Port and probably played his best footy during the finals. Will definetely be missed as he departs to fulfill some coaching duties (I believe he is coaching Wonthagi Magpies).
Looks to be the first signing of 2021 at the Borough. He's been exceptional and will lead the club into the revamped competition.
For the history buffs out there, here is a comprehensive three-parter on the Mighty Cobras
