ESSENDON sharpshooter Federica Frew is within reach of a significant milestone if she is able to have a day out in the rebel VFLW Grand Final against Southern Saints at ETU Stadium on Sunday.

Rohenna Young medallist Frew, who has booted 33 goals for the season, needs another three majors to reach 50 VFLW goals in her career, a terrific achievement given she will only be playing her 33rd match.

To add context to that achievement, only her co-captain and games record holder Mia-Rae Clifford (59), Darebin’s Stephanie Simpson (58) and Hawthorn recruit Jess Duffin (54) have kicked more goals among active players, while Moana Hope (126, including 106 for St Kilda Sharksin 2016, below), Katie Brennan (125), Jasmine Garner (104), Darcy Vescio (96), Jaimee Lambert (93), Sarah Perkins (92), Christina Bernardi (57), Lauren Arnell (56), Chloe Molloy (56), Tara Bohanna (49), Kaitlyn Ashmore (49) and Alex Quigley (48) are no longer active in the VFLW, placing Frew 16th overall.
