As Fremantle’s Bianca Webb enters her third season at AFLW level, the midfielder is feeling quite familiar with the hard work required during the pre-season period.

Webb has played 12 games across her first two seasons with Fremantle, after being selected at pick no.85 in the 2019 NAB AFLW Draft.

Arguably her best performance to date came last season, where Webb collected 12 disposals and laid seven tackles in Freo’s narrow one-point defeat to North Melbourne in round nine.

Webb joins her teammates in preparing for season six of the women’s competition, and said recent draftees Airlie Runnalls and Dana East had stood out on the track so far.

“It’s my third season now, so I’m used to a bit of pre-season,” Webb said,

“We’ve got some new structures and some girls are potentially flipping positions, so I’m really excited to see that.

“From the new girls, Airlie’s run is great, and her hands are so clean. The same goes for ‘Easty’…she’s got the country girl in her.

“We love the heat, so pre-season has been really good so far!”

Webb said the recent addition of Bob Murphy as Fremantle’s new Head of Football Operations and Performance was one that brought a great level of experience to the Club.

“He is awesome, he is just really good at getting around the girls and having chats on and off the field,” Webb said.

“(It’s great to have) him bringing his skills in from his past experience.”

Webb recently joined her Freo teammates in participating in the Club’s AFLW Junior Clinic, which saw over 130 children aged five to 12 descend on Victor George Kailis Oval for a morning of fun.

The midfielder said she loved being able to lend a guiding hand to the next generation of footballing talent.

“The kids always have lots of questions and they are learning something new every time, which I would have loved to have back as a kid,” Webb said.

“We’ve got kicking drills, handballs, ground ball, just the little skills for them to learn.

“I’m in a group with Ange Stannett and Hayley Miller, so our code for the day is take no prisoners.

“We’ve been playing tag with the kids, and we have not let one kid tag us yet so that’s the competition now!”
