Fremantle and Greater Western Sydney have each lost one of their marquee players before the inaugural National Women's League season.

The Giants' Renee Forth and the Dockers' Kiara Bowers both suffered serious knee injuries in the same game last weekend.

Forth, 29, ruptured her anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and medial meniscus in her right knee.

Fellow midfielder Bowers, 24, ruptured her ACL.

The new eight-team women's competition is scheduled to start in 2017.

Afl.com.au has reported the Dockers and the Giants will receive a priority player selection.
