AFLW TRAIN­ING START­ING

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - SPORT - Kristie Lim

SWAN Dis­tricts and Fre­man­tle AFLW cap­tain Kara Don­nel­lan is look­ing for­ward to re­join her team­mates for the sec­ond AFLW pre-sea­son which kicks off on Novem­ber 20.

Don­nel­lan cap­tained Swans to their third straight pre­mier­ship fol­low­ing a sev­enth-place fin­ish with Fre­man­tle in the in­au­gu­ral AFLW sea­son.

The 25-year-old said she started train­ing as part of her “pre pre-sea­son” block.

“On Novem­ber 20, we get to­gether as a group down at Freo,” she said.

“I am sure there will be lots of run­ning, game play and big scrim­mage-type things.

“I am mostly look­ing for­ward to just get­ting to­gether with the girls and start­ing some­thing pretty special hope­fully for 2018.”

Don­nel­lan said it was a special feel­ing to share an AFLW ex­pe­ri­ence with sev­eral Swans pre­mier­ship team­mates.

“They are fam­ily mem­bers to me; I have known a lot of them for the five years I have been here,” she said. “This sea­son in the WAWFL, we were lucky enough to win all three pre­mier­ships.

“It is ic­ing on the cake to en­joy the Freo sea­son with some of my re­ally good Swans mates.”
