If footballing pedigree is anything to go by, Ellie Brush's rapid rise from W-League captain to AFL Women's star should be no surprise to anyone ahead of the Giants' round-four clash with Brisbane on Saturday.The Australian game has always been in her blood, long before she made her name with the round ball – a journey that led to representing her country in a Matildas shirt.Richmond take pre-season victory over CrowsVideo duration01:30Previous slideNext slideVideo duration01:47AFLW plays of round 3AFLW plays of round 3McCarthy sprints to goal of the round, GWS and Freo can't take a trick, the Dees discover a power forward and Erin Phillips dobs one from 60 as the Crows remain top.Richmond take pre-season victory over CrowsVideo duration01:30Video duration01:30Richmond take pre-season vict

greater western sydney giants down melbourne demons for maiden aflw win

The Giants ended their AFL Women's drought at a sodden Blacktown International Sportspark on Friday night, doggedly holding off the Demons to land a five-point win that effectively ended Melbourne's premiership aspirations.Goals to Jacinda Barclay, Aimee Schmidt and Emma Beeson were enough to see off the inaccurate Demons, who finished with one goal and nine behinds in the Giants' last game in Sydney this season.

women's sport kicking goals - but let's aim at the right thing

Greater Western Sydney AFLW general manager Libby Sadler kicked the ball through the centre posts on Thursday night, when, as part of a panel at a Women in Sport forum hosted by ACT Minister for Sport Yvette Berry, she started talking about triangles.There aren't many triangles in sport. Circles, squares, rectangles, sure, but not a lot of triangles. But this equilateral idea captured, for me at least, the whole point in the recent revolution, if that's not too big a word, in women's sport.

netball legends cath cox and kim green praise women's sport movement

Former Australian captains Cath Cox and Kim Green have praised the women's sport movement over the past six months, but don't believe netball is under threat.The Diamonds legends spoke ahead of the Giants Netball and Adelaide Thunderbirds clash at the AIS Arena on Sunday where Green will skipper the Giants, while Cox will commentate for channel Nine.

afl women's competition should shown respect by fans

Well golly, haven't the past six weeks of AFLW been fun? I mean I knew it was going to be good. But I didn't think that after such a short space of time I'd be considering getting "Vescio" tattooed to my butt, or that three of the most intimidating people I now know of are named Lily, Ellie, and Daisy. They sound like Disney Princesses, for the love of God! Or at the very least, close relatives of Dora the Explorer. But don't let their adorable names fool you. Just looking at them makes me want to pop in a mouthguard for safety.Not only has learning the new teams and revelling in the symbolic importance of this league been magnificent, but I've quite liked some of the rule changes, too. Fifteen-minute quarters? Yes please. I mean let's keep in mind that I, as well as most of these players,

wearable and sellable is key at paris fashion week

There were two 100th celebrations during this year's Paris Fashion Week. The first was Dries van Noten’s, which the Belgian designer took as an opportunity for a love-in with 54 women who have walked for him since 1993. Supermodels of the past proved they still had what it took to own the runway in a collection that was a remixed retrospective of prints that have made Van Noten’s name. Clothes were styled to show "how the women would like to dress themselves" according to the designer, and for Ellie Pithers at vogue.co.uk, "the joyful atmosphere was infectious". For Pithers, standout looks included "body-enveloping quilted jackets in jewel-toned patchwork satin and velvet, worn with simple jeans, navy polo necks and brogues". On a serious note, Sarah Mower at vogue.com reflected that of th

international women's day: 50 who made us political history

The history of women in American politics is just as long as that of the nation as a whole. Even in the days before the Constitution guaranteed women the right to vote, many tried hard to make a difference as best they could — and succeeded, not only by breaking glass ceilings and proving that women could handle the job but also by introducing important legislation, standing up for their fellow citizens' rights and much more.Whether they held office at the local and federal level, whether they were appointed to the most high-profile jobs in politics or to a role many would never hear about, and even if they merely ran and lost, each made her mark. Some of them wielded their influence in the nation's earliest days and others have only recently been elected to office. And, of course, that hi

the diary of the home-made livery yard: relaxing horsey day out — is there such

Just before Christmas, we acquired a Golden Retriever puppy; Wiggles. We have been gradually introducing him to life at the yard and getting him used to the horses.Worryingly, Wiggles will obliviously follow the horses when I bring them in, just inches from their feet and follow them into their stables if I am not quick enough to intervene. While this has aged me several years in the space of a couple of weeks in stress and worry lines, I am pleased that he is not excited by the horses or scared of them. He is just a little, well, obtuse.I had a training breakthrough today though, when leading a horse in from the field. Wiggles was hot on our heels and I actually managed to get him to stop, lie down and stay. Not by command, but simply by growling at him. In fact, I seem to spend an awful

trump tweets his 'tremendous respect' for women on int'l women's day; chelsea ha

Wednesday (March 8) is International Women's Day and President Trump expressed his support by tweeting about how vital women are to our society."I have tremendous respect for women and the many roles they serve that are vital to the fabric of our society and our economy," he wrote. "On International Women's Day, join me in honoring the critical role of women here in America & around the world."Trump has been widely criticized as being sexist, and the response to his claim that he has "tremendous respect for women" was swift, with many people pointing out the disparaging and insulting remarks he has made about women in the past.Ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Trump was caught on tape bragging to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush that as a celebrity he could do whatever he wanted with w

A raft of injuries soured the Greater Western Sydney Giants' 38-point pre-season thumping of the North Melbourne Kangaroos at Manuka Oval on Friday night.Veteran Steve Johnson was taken from the field with a concussion after being on the wrong end of a heavy bump from North midfielder Shaun Higgins in the first quarter, while Aiden Corr played no part in the second half with a hand injury.
