Surf’s up! – The South Coast Swell take out the 2021 Wellington Women’s Premiership

The South Coast Swell have narrowly defeated Nga Manu Rere in the 2021 Wellington AFL Women’s Grand Final.

The Swell got out to an early lead and then held off a determined Nga Manu, who clawed their way back into the game.

Both teams left nothing out on the field in the final game of the season with every ball hotly contested.

It was a great game and like many during the season, could have gone either way – in the end, the Swell prevailed.

It’s been a big year for WAFLW, with the introduction of 2 new team identities and new uniform kits. They also had record numbers playing the game in 2021.

As the game in Wellington continues to grow, a number of players now turn their attention to the AFL New Zealand Women’s Premiership.

Congratulations to players from both teams for a tremendous season.

Final score:

South Coast Swell 2.6.18 def Nga Manu Rere 1.4.10
