With just three weeks to go until AFLW season seven commences, Bella Lewis says fans can expect a ‘connected’ West Coast team which she believes will reap rewards on field.

“I think a lot more connectedness in the way that we play,” Lewis said.

“It comes from how close and tightknit we are as a group and we all really care about each other.

“We want each other to succeed so I think there is going to be a lot of that in the way that we gel on the field and our drive and consistency to do better.”

The Eagles finished bottom of the ladder following a 39-point loss against North Melbourne at Arden Street Oval in the last round of the season.

Adding to her highlight reel, Lewis kicked her first goal of her career.

With AFLW season seven starting less than five months after, Lewis says the team have refocused and are ready for the challenge.

“Personally, I like going straight into the season to make up for what our last season was,” Lewis said.

“For me that’s kind of proving to myself and the group what we are capable of and how quickly we can turn things around.

“I know that most of us are really excited to get into it and I guess hopes for us is to be consistent and take what we have been through and put that out on the field.”

The squad has been building towards lifting standards and professionalism which was evident in Saturday’s intraclub match.

The star 2021 club champion said there were positive takeaways and many standout players.

“Aisling McCarthy was unreal,” Lewis said.

“She hasn’t been able to get a proper good run at it in term of having an injury free season, so she’ll show us what she is capable of which is really exciting.

“Shanae Davison was another one as well.

“She hasn’t had a great run with injury, but she’s blown most of us away this preseason with her work ethic and it showed in the practice match.”
