The first video came out less than a week after the AFLW season was cancelled, and has players receiving a roll of toilet paper from the left of screen and handballing or kicking it out to the right.

Covid-19 has kept us inside, but together weโ€™ve found a way to stand side by side. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿค#MyHomeGround #StayAtHomeSaveLives

Maddie says the inspiration came from the genuine love and respect the team have for each other. After a couple of unsuccessful seasons, this year thereโ€™s been a much bigger focus on team culture and cohesion. It turned things around on the field, and itโ€™s made them a tighter knit group off the field as well.

When footy was suddenly over there was a gaping hole, and they needed a new focus. It wasnโ€™t just for the team, they also felt they owed the fans something.

โ€œItโ€™s tough for us but itโ€™s tough for them too. This shows that weโ€™re all in it together.โ€

She organised it through the group chat, and chose โ€œPump It Upโ€ as a fitting soundtrack, given itโ€™s the song they run out to on game day.

The next video, โ€œGet to know what my mates are really likeโ€, has players doing something unusual. Each player chose and filmed their own activity - sometimes just to get a laugh but sometimes itโ€™s real.

โ€œEbs (Ebony Oโ€™Dea) is eating burnt toast. But the thing is, she really likes burnt toast. Whatโ€™s weird to everyone else is normal to her.โ€

Get to know what my mates are really like. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

The third video has the team singing to โ€œMan After Midnightโ€. Fair warning: this gave me an earworm that lasted a week.

It takes a few days to organise each time, Maddie reveals. They have players in Perth and the Northern Territory and Ireland, and the timing and co-ordination can be a bit awkward. Most of the team are on board though, and get into the spirit of it.

โ€œThey might just be pleased to have something to do,โ€ she says.

Even though the AFLW season would be over by now, theyโ€™d normally be training for and playing in the VFLW season. Everyone still has a fitness program including running, gym and touch sessions; but it can be hard when you live alone.

Sheโ€™s philosophical about it though.

โ€œIโ€™d rather not be playing footy, and saving 60,000 lives.โ€
