Beyond 90 Podcast: Season 12 Round 5

The Beyond 90 Podcast: Season 12 Round 3 is in! Groubes has been given a week off for good behaviour so it’s just Molly and Cheryl running through the week in women’s football.

We kick off by reminiscing about the first game of the round between Brisbane Roar and Western Sydney Wanderers. What a game! I think Molly was salivating and Cheryl was in awe of the bone-crunching tackles.

Next up, Newcastle v Canberra and Heather Garriock’s masterstroke to recruit Simone Charley. Can she be stopped?

Cheryl took a long drive out to Shepparton to watch her first W-League match of the season – Melbourne City v Adelaide United. Amber Brooks, Mary Fowler and Sarah Willacy all impressed for the visitors, whilst there was a bit of a consensus that City are playing with their food.

The final match of the round between Perth Glory and Sydney FC wasn’t all one way but Sydney are looking the goods. Caitlin Foord looks to be in fine form and we quickly discuss versatility – is it a gift or a challenge?

Next stop, Cheryl gives a progress update on Home Department approval to travel to Morwell for Melbourne Victory against the Wanderers, while Molly is peaking early in her excitement for the Round 6 Sydney Derby clash.

Molly also gives her tips for Round 4, along with all the science in making her decisions. We wrap up by discussing the Never Say Die book launch, co-authored by Fiona Crawford and Lee McGowan, with a nod to our mate Rachel Bach.

Molly definitely needs to work on her outro.
