The Blues have thrown themselves headfirst into their inaugural season in the famous Cootamundra guernsey but inexperience and defensive lapses have crippled their chances at clinching a maiden win.

What’s Happened?

It’s been a brutal welcome to the UNSW Canberra Women’s League but the Blues can hold their heads high in the face of adversity.

Tough losses to Belconnen, Queanbeyan and Gungahlin have been hard to swallow and would disenfranchise even the most hardened AFLW players.

However, steps are being taken on a weekly basis and with the majority of squad members in their debut season of AFL, captain Michaela Perceval is conscious of the steady progress being made. 

What’s Next?

The Blues enjoy a bye this weekend but shape as dark horses for upcoming clashes with  ANU Griffins and Molonglo.

The eight-placed Griffins have struggled defensively this season, conceding 404 points in six games (3rd worst in competition).

Meanwhile, the Juggernauts have lost four of their past five outings, including a 66-point loss to Belconnen.

The Blues take on ANU at South Oval on June 24.
