All aboard! A new G-Train is steaming through St Kilda

THE last time St Kilda fans were chanting the name 'G-Train' was when Fraser Gehrig was kicking 100 goals in a season.

But the faithful at Moorabbin busted out the chant again after 178cm key forward Caitlin Greiser smashed through a huge bomb from just outside the 50 metre arc to ultimately award St Kilda its inaugural win in the NAB AFL Women's Competition.

HEAVEN SENT Saints on the board with first win

It's not just the fans that are calling her 'G-Train', but her teammates and coach too.

The new cult hero knows that name carries a lot of meaning, but she's taking it all in her stride.

Caitlin Greiser is earning the new moniker after a monster goal from the arc

"It's pretty special to be honest. It's really big at the club so I want to make sure I live it on and play my best," Greiser said.

The third-gamer's strong frame stood out under the Friday night lights at RSEA Park, but her teammate Kate McCarthy says Greiser is a 'gentle giant'.

"She's a very thoughtful person," McCarthy said following the club's first win on Friday night.

"I think you could mistake her for someone completely different on the football field."?

The next step for Greiser is realising she can be a dominant force in every contest.

"She's going to be something else," McCarthy said.

FULL FIXTURE Every round, every game

"Lookout teams if she gets even more confident in her abilities.

"You saw what she could do, in my opinion I think she can improve on that tenfold."

Saints duo combine with a tap, 1-2, and goal assist

Kate McCarthy and Caitlin Greiser team up and take advantage of the open field to kick the opening major.


Greiser grew up a North Melbourne fan and managed to find a way to have a kick whenever she could, but her mum wasn't keen on her lining up against the boys.

"I used to do dancing when I was little and I didn't really like that. I used to dance on Saturday mornings and then go out across the road and kick the footy on the oval in my leotard," Greiser said.

Pride Game: 'Standing up for what we believe in'

The young Saint is a relative new-comer to high level footy, after spending 11 years as a forward on the soccer pitch.

"I was supposed to go over to college (to play soccer) in America but I turned that down, which I'm really happy I did because this opportunity came around."

Her highlight in the round-ball game was booting eight goals in a game for South Melbourne in the NPL, something that might not be entirely out of reach one day for her with a Sherrin in hand.
