FOOTY came back with a bang as many of the big guns fired in the opening round of the 2021 NAB AFL Women's competition. 

Fremantle continued its winning ways from 2020 with a big win over Greater Western Sydney on Sunday afternoon, after North Melbourne handed Geelong a shellacking and Brisbane accounted for Richmond at Punt Road Oval. 

On Saturday, Melbourne started its campaign in fine style with a solid victory over Gold Coast and Adelaide flexed its considerable muscle by thrashing West Coast. 

Earlier, Collingwood began the AFLW season with an impressive win over arch rival Carlton at a sold-out Ikon Park on Thursday night, before an impressive St Kilda accounted for the Western Bulldogs at Moorabbin on Friday night.
