“I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date.” – The White Rabbit, Alice in Wonderland.

Cutting it fine with this episode of the Beyond 90 Podcast W-League Round 9 wrap plus Fatty.

The downright amazing Fatima Flores joins Molly and Cheryl to talk about the Roar Corp, MadTildas, and Level Playing Field.

Fatty gives a big shout out to the Roar Corp gang, including uber-fan Harper McGowan.

No chance of stopping Fatty there so we roll onto our thoughts on the 20 player Matildas squad announcement for the Olympic Qualification series in Wuhan, China.
