AFLW expansion planned for the 2022/23 season

The biggest news in footy this week centres around the announcement of an expanded AFLW competition in the 2022/23 season to include all 18 clubs. Hawthorn has already announced that its team will be coached by Bec Goddard, hopefully just the first in a number of females to take on this senior role. It certainly puts out a challenge to other clubs to follow suit!
