The GWS Giants AFLW squad will take on the West Coast Eagles this Sunday, February 21 at 5:10pm at the Blacktown International Sportspark in round four of the 2021 competition.

The Giants are keen to go back-to-back, following their 18-8 win against the Gold Coast Suns this past Saturday, February 13.

A win will see GWS jump a few spots up the ladder and secure a finals berth.

Sunday's fixture is also set to see the return of the NAB AFL Half Time Auskick for the first time in Sydney in 12 months.

Auskickers will return to the big stage and play during the half time break at Blacktown.

Liam Marshall is a Giants fan and will have the opportunity to get out onto the field this weekend.

The six-year-old, from the Marsden Park Auskick Centre said his two favourite players were Toby Greene and Alyce Parker, and that he was excited to return to playing at half-time of GWS games.

"Its fun," he said. "I love kicking best. I get to run out where the players are and mum and dad can see me.

"Two seasons ago I got to run out with Alyce Parker at an AFLW game at Blacktown, she ran so fast but held my hand and we got to run through the banner. AFL is fun to watch!"

NAB AFL Auskick registrations are open for the 2021 season. Visit pay.afl to find your local centre.

There is an Auskick centre in every LGA across Sydney with the season set to commence in May.
