AFL Live GWS Giants vs West Coast Eagles Stream AFL 2017 Pre Seasons match will be kick off at ENarrandera Sports Stadium, NSW, Australia, Saturday 18 February 2017 online, 14.05 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Their women’s AFL team will kick the massive day off when they take on the Fremantle Dockers in the AFLW at Blacktown.
Then the men will be in action in Narrandera for the club’s opening match in the JLT Community Series against West Coast.
And finally the Giants’ netballers will kick off the new Super Netball competition when they take on local rivals the NSW Swifts at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre at 5pm.
It’s a huge undertaking for an organisation which is just five years old. They’ve bitten off three big mouthfuls and are chewing as fast as they can.
CEO David Matthews said it’s a red-letter day for the club.
“Traditionally it’s been a frustrating time of the year for the AFL when you see the other codes getting underway and the AFL starting later,” Matthews said.
“Today you have the AFLW team and the Giants netball team putting the Giants brand at the front of mind at a time when we didn’t have those assets available to us.”
The AFLW team will be looking for their first win after road losses to Adelaide and Carlton. Their mission received a shot in the arm with the return from injury of marquee player Emma Swanson.
“If the girls bring what they brought last week plus some more we can do it,” Swanson said.
“Last week was good but not good enough.”
After the match a group of the Giants AFLW team will then head to Sydney Olympic Park to support their netball team in Sydney’s first derby against the Swifts, although ticketing could be an issue at the sellout event.
