The game against the Southern Saints on the weekend marked the last fixture for North Melbourne VFLW for the season.

In true North tradition, the Roos showed fight for the whole game, ending its year on a good note.

After owning the momentum for the first three quarters, the Saints wrapped up the game in the fourth quarter, winning by 38 points. 

In arguably her best season, Meagan Kiely was at her usual best on Sunday, with 36 disposals.

Kiely broke the record for the most ever kicks recorded in a VFLW game, with 31 kicks.

Coach Cheyne Webster believes the North stars deserves her chance on the big stage.

“Meagan, I believe is clearly the best player in the VFLW right now – and I believe the best player around not on an AFLW list,” Webster told North Media.

“To do what she’s done this season as a player and as a leader is phenomenal.”

Airlie Runnalls was also a standout, with 33 disposals, 9 marks and a goal, while her teammate Lexi Hamilton is constantly pushing her AFLW list chances, with 10 disposals, 11 hitouts and 4 tackles.

“Lexi has played the ruck/forward role as well as anyone in the competition this season, and has been one of our biggest success stories,” Webster said.

“She really does deserve a chance at AFLW level.”

The season review for North's VFLW side is extremely positive, with improvements made every week.

Webster feels extremely positive about the year.

“It’s been a season where we’ve improved as individuals and as a group – to build the foundations of a strong VFLW program, and to see it develop,” he said.

“I’m extremely proud of everyone at North and I’m excited to see where this program goes.

“We are really fortunate that we have four to five genuine draft chances in our VFLW program. Kiely, Eastman, Skinner, Hamilton and Runnalls all wouldn’t look out of place on an AFLW list.”
