Fremantle AFLW forward Ashley Sharp said she hopes to see Optus Stadium covered in purple at Saturday’s clash against Collingwood.

With the round two of the NAB AFL being held at the new stadium, Sharp said the girls have mixed emotions towards the upcoming game.

“There’s a lot of mixed emotions; there’s nerves and excitement,” Sharp said.

“We had a tour last week, of the stadium, and the facilities we have there are so good.”

The the second year player had a fierce game against the Western Bulldogs on Sunday scoring her first goal of this season.

Despite Fremantle falling short for the Bulldogs by 26 points, Sharp said she hopes to continue playing her aggressive style of footy and help Freo bounce back.

“It’s what were structured to do, so hopefully we can bring it in against Collingwood,” Sharp said.


“Hopefully, I can play like I keep that up this weekend and all season and do well towards the end of the season.”

Sharp said the focus for this week's clash is to continue the energy from Sunday’s third quarter and play consistent and hard footy for four quarters.

“It just shows how good we can actually be,” Sharp said.

“What we’ve really got to work on is to start doing that for all four-quarters and, hopefully, we can start getting some wins on the board.”

Fremantle will play Collingwood at Optus Stadium on Saturday at 4.10pm WST.
