Yeah this was reported a while ago

The venue was booked for a series of concerts by The Weeknd, however the tour was postponed at the last minute.

With Daisy Pearce to be announced as the next AFLW coach for the West Coast Eagles, I wonder if that means she’ll have to give up her role in special comments for Seven.

That would create another vacancy on the Saturday night line-up. Who can replace her?

Daisy and her family will be relocating to Perth next season and have to give up her commentary duties at the same time.

She could still appear on Seven’s coverage of matches played in Perth, so she might not be lost to the network.

A sports reporter for The West Australian is another possible option

According to an article on AFL website, from today’s press conference:

Pearce, who has forged a path as a respected and popular analyst on Channel 7, said she would work through the notion of continuing her role in the media with the Eagles and the network, both of which had been “incredibly supportive”.

Ruby Schleicher is another option. She works on Fox Footy

No he’s coming back, potentially to Seven (bridges at Fox seemingly burnt).

I think Daisy can still do commentary for 7 in the first 8-10 rounds of the AFL men’s season (1 game a round like this year etc) since the women’s pre season and stuff doesn’t start until the men’s bye rounds.

She probably won’t be commentating AFLW games until maybe the finals

This depends on if the Eagles can break through for a finals appearance in 2024.

The first promo of the 2024 season aired tonight during innings break of Seven’s BBL broadcast. It ended with the slogan “Why go anywhere else?”.
