Cora Staunton and Yvonne Bonner will play for the Greater Western Sydney Giants again next season as they became the latest Irish women to re-sign with the AFLW for 2020.

That follows the news that Clare woman Ailish Considine, who won the Championship with Adelaide Crows, and Western Bulldogs' Aisling McCarthy will both be back next year.

Former Mayo star Staunton and Donegal forward Bonner both scored six goals as the Giants finished third in Conference B, one of Bonner's efforts being voted the club's goal of the season.

Staunton, who first played in the AFLW in 2018, wrote on Twitter: "Love everything about this club. Honoured & privileged to be asked back for season 4.0 (of the competition). It's been a great journey so far thanks to everyone that has made it possible."

Staunton (37) had already confirmed that her Mayo days were over after four All-Ireland titles but Donegal had hoped Bonner (32) would be back for the summer's Championship campaign. Reports suggest that is now unlikely.

Sarah Rowe is also expected to return to the league next year. In announcing her as Collingwood's best rookie player last week, the club said they were looking forward to having her back in 2020.

Rowe has already made two substitute appearances for Mayo in the Lidl National Football League since returning home last month.
