QClash to get an Academy twist on Sunday


IT WILL be a QClash with the difference on Sunday, when Brisbane Academy and Gold Coast Academy face off in the Queensland edition of the NAB AFLW All-Stars game. 

The traditional NAB AFLW Under-18 Championships have been restructured this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, with state-based events replacing the usual interstate games.
