Around the Grounds: Jenna McCormick’s next incredible feat

Is there anything Brisbane Roar star Jenna McCormick can’t do?

The freakishly talented dual sportswoman has played in the Westfield W-League since 2012 and made her Australian rules football career debut in 2016 for Adelaide Crows.

And she has won silverware in each code: earning the Westfield W-League Premiership with Canberra United (2016/17) and the inaugural 2017 AFL Women’s Premiership with Adelaide.

The latest challenge for the Mount Gambier-born athlete: appearing on season three of Australian Ninja Warrior.

The popular sports entertainment television program – in which contestants must navigate a rigorous set of obstacles while going the fastest and furthest – is set to air in July.

Westfield W-League stars re-unite

There could be as many as six Westfield Matildas on the pitch involved in the top of the table clash between Portland Thorns and Reign FC in Saturday afternoon’s National Women’s Soccer League clash.

It looks as though Portland players Ellie Carpenter – a second-half substitute in last weekend’s win over Houston Dash – Hayley Raso and Caitlin Foord are in the frame to return to action after the club posted this picture of the Aussie trio on Twitter earlier in the week.
