Magpie Emma Sculley launches a clearing kick at the Cavanbah oval last week.

Last week was the Indigenous round for the AFL and in the local women’s competition Byron Magpies took on the Lismore Swans.

The Byron side is having its first season together and in their fifth game of the year fought hard till full time. 

They defended against last year’s champions as best they could with special mentions for Emma Sculley and Ashleigh McKenna for their work in the back line.

The experience of the Swans got them a comfortable 43–9 win, but the Magpies never gave up.

Arakwal women Delta Kay and Rikkara McGuinness, as well as Wakka Wakka woman Belle Arnold performed dances paying respect to the elders past and present. 

The magpies are hoping to recruit a few more women to the team. Any enquiries please contact Emma on 0431279301.
