As we gathered for our pre-match huddle, and I scanned the focused faces staring back at me, I knew we were in a good place.

The doubts had been festering in the lead-up to Tuesday night’s game against Carlton; it had been 16 days since our previous AFLW outing, a large cohort of our squad had only just been cleared to play after a sweeping Covid-19 outbreak, and we were still unsure where we stood following our heavy Round 1 defeat to Adelaide.
