AFLW Bulldogs’ No Excuses, Says Huntington
Western Bulldogs forward Izzy Huntington said the group are heading into the 2022 NAB AFLW season without apologies.
The Bulldogs ended their AFLW 2021 campaign with a 5-4 win-loss record, and aren’t backing down from their 2×25 mantra – achieving two more PM posts by 2025.
Huntington said the group is moving in the right direction and predicted further improvement this season.
âWe’ve kind of had the ‘developing’ label on us for a few years now, and I think it’s time to ditch that now,â Huntington said. SEN 1116 Last week.
âWe have a young team, but I think we are more than capable of fighting for a place in the final and hopefully a flag as well.
âI think we’ve really clicked recently, and the preseason so far has been very good in terms of connecting. We also had some great sessions on the track.
âI have no doubts that we are going to perform really well – I think we have high expectations of ourselves now and will have no excuses in terms of using our relative age or that ‘developing’ label. no more. “
On the pitch, Bulldog dad Issy Grant particularly impressed Huntington, as did off-season additions Richelle Cranston and Elle Bennetts.
âThe one that comes to mind (in terms of strengths) is Issy Grant first – she has had a rough few years with a few injury battles and hasn’t been in the park much, but she absolutely dominated. this preseason so far. âsaid the former No. 1 draft pick.
âShe is still in great shape and is really gaining self-confidence.
âThe two rookies that we recruited – Rocky Cranston and Elle Bennetts – have slipped perfectly too. They are two gun players, and I hope they can tear it up as well. “
The Bulldogs will kick off their AFLW 2022 campaign with the Hampson-Hardeman Cup battle against Melbourne at the VU Whitten Oval on Saturday, January 8.
