We have a great match up ahead of us this weekends Women's Premier Division Grand Final. The Sydney University Bombers have made their sixth Grand Final in a row however they will have a formidable opponent in UNSW ES. The Stingrays have been impressive this year and have shown their Premiership credentials by winning the Minor Premiership. Madelane Collier has really been impressive for the Stingrays this year and is strongly pushing her case to be taken as a draft pick in the National women’s draft later this year. However she is not alone as Nicola Barr also lays her claim as a rising AFL Sydney talent. She has been one of the best players in the competition all year and has been receiving national attention as we near 2017. These two girls will be crucial to their side’s chances of claiming the Premiership this weekend at Blacktown ISP.
Prediction: The Minor Premiers to claim the flag in one of the greats. UNSW ES Stingrays by 12 points.
