Graceful Entry into Pre-Season

AFLW Players' Big Move Our AFLW players are settling back in for another season and the move is made even easier with our partners Grace Removals.

Pre-season training is all about heavy lifting, and AFLW partner Grace Group are doing their fair share ahead of November 20. 

Under new Head Coach Alan McConnell, the AFLW side will come together for their first session in less than three weeks.

Victorian defender Alex Saundry and Perth-based Aimee Schmidt made the most of the Grace Group partnership as they settled into their new home in the inner-west this week.

Former Magpie Lachie Keeffe has joined the GIANTS.

The GIANTS have secured former Collingwood swingman Lachie Keeffe in the AFL Delisted Free Agency period.

The 27-year-old versatile tall has played 40 games over seven seasons in the competition.

Coming from a soccer background, Keeffe was first spotted at a Queensland talent search and joined the Magpies’ rookie list for the 2009 season.

Standing at 204cm and 101kg, Keeffe will add to the GIANTS’ tall timber for the 2018 season.

“We’re excited to have Lachie join us for the upcoming season,” said GIANTS General Manager Football Wayne Campbell.

"Lachie can play as a tall defender or forward, but given his height and the retirements of Shane Mumford and Tom Downie, we see that he can provide us some coverage in the ruck too.
