GameDay Squad Women's Aussie Rules: Player Positions Revealed

With the exciting announcement of GameDay Squad entering the ever growing space of Women's Fantasy Footy, we realise that coaches all across the country will be looking for all the information they can find to help them get started! So, without further delay, let's get stuck into talking about position and what types of players you should be looking out for in player card pack and on the transfer market!

There are 18 active scoring players on a Women's Fantasy Footy field. These are separated into 4 different positions:

6 defenders

5 midfielders

1 ruckman

6 forwards.

There are also 4 total bench players, one for each position. As well as your reserve which house all your non-playing player cards.

* It is important to note that all empty positions slots will need to be filled for scores to be counted. If any empty slots remain after the final lock out period the squad will be deemed disqualified and will receive zero points.

Winners and Losers

Winner - Goal scoring forwards

With goals worth 8 points in GDS, we will see the lowest scoring group of players from Women's Fantasy Footy benefit the most. Key forwards who have the potential to kick a bag can now be considered as a serious fantasy team starter after years of Women's Fantasy Footy neglect.

Loser - Low disposal Ruckman

With kicking the footy now more important than ever, ruckman are going to see those around them rack up points than ever before. While some may benefit from the increase in goals, those who don't impact the scoreboard or who aren’t comfortable putting the ball on the toe may be left behind.

Winner - Defenders who take kick ins

No position kicks the ball more in proportion than defenders, so the 4 points they will get for each is sure to have some of them fighting the midfielders for most points on the ground. While most defenders should benefit, none will do more so than those who take their team's majority of kick-ins. They are now sure to see their value skyrocket.

Losers - Midfielders who don't hit the scoreboard

It's true midfielders will dominate most Women's Fantasy Footy games regardless of how you design the scoring system, however, with GDS those who don't find themselves kicking goals will soon see themselves lose their place to those who do.

Winners - You
