Grace Stewart is the captain of the Hockeyroos, an Olympian, a Commonwealth Games silver medalist and she still needs to work a second job to make ends meet. In this episode, Grace sits down with Cate and Hayley to discuss the pay problem plaguing both male and female players and the plans to get Hockey into the mainstream Australian psyche ahead of Paris 2024.
Plus, an update on the FIFA Women’s World Cup sponsorship controversy, the football team stripped of points pushing their rivals to the top of the ladder, and a conversation about commentary teams. Do you think more men be commentating on women’s sport?
We also take a look around the grounds for the latest results and let you know what to watch in women’s sport this weekend.
