AFLW: Fremantle set finals benchmark but only backed by one captain to make decider as Eagles eye improvement

Just one of the 18 captains has tipped Fremantle to make the AFLW grand final this season despite the Dockers declaring finals their base benchmark in season seven.

On Wednesday, on-field leaders from all 18 clubs gathered at Marvel Stadium to launch the new AFLW season, with every AFL club set to field a women’s side for the first time.

Vice-captain Ange Stannett, who stepped in for Hayley Miller (other commitments), said the hurt of last season’s preliminary final loss to eventual premiers Adelaide had driven the Dockers to improve quickly.

Melbourne (eight votes), Brisbane (five votes) and Adelaide (four votes) were the skippers’ top picks to feature in this season’s decider but Stannett said Fremantle had lofty ambitions and couldn’t be underestimated.
