VFLW Tigers ready for ADF All Stars clash

The VFLW Tigers will face off against the Australian Defence Force Women's All Stars this afternoon in the Women’s Anzac Challenge Cup.

Kicking off at 2.30pm, the clash will be a curtain raiser to Richmond's Anzac Eve match against Melbourne at the MCG from 7.35pm.

It’s set to be a fierce contest, as the VFLW Tigers look to defend their title after a 12-point win last year.

The Swinburne Centre’s gates will open at 2.00pm, with free entry for all and food trucks on offer.

The clash will provide the VFLW Tigers the opportunity to put the finishing touches on their pre-season, now less than three weeks out from their Round 1 clash against Darebin on May 11.

 

Richmond’s AFLW side has also started to take shape, with six players now locked in for 2020 through the recent AFLW sign and trade period.

It was yesterday announced that Richmond has been allocated the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NAB AFL Women’s Draft as well as pick seven, both priority selections.
