Irish duo Cora Staunton and Yvonne Bonner have resigned with the Greater Western Sydney Giants for the 2021 AFLW season.
Their performances in helping the Giants to their first finals series in 2020 have been rewarded with places on the club’s 2021 list.
11-time All-Star Staunton made her AFLW debut back in 2018 while Donegal’s Bonner followed in her footsteps a year later.
The Giants’ pre-season will commence with a two-week induction period starting Wednesday. November 4 while the 2021 NAB AFL Women's Competition is set for the week commencing February 1, 2021.
Meanwhile, Staunton’s former Mayo team-mate Sarah Rowe and Cavan’s Aishling Sheridan have both resigned with Collingwood.
