AFLW: The Run Home

Recommended Posts

I’ve watched a few of the women’s matches and have been impressed by the inside 50’s effort. Unfortunately, it seems easy for the opposition to bring it back out. I think if we can hold it in there or better still, convert more efficiently, we have the game style to produce a winning score.

Ladder after round 6.

Basically any of the top 5 teams can make the GF (if I have the logic right).

From the Top -  If:

  • Bulldogs win - in GF at Home
  • Demons win - in GF at Home
  • Crows win can dislodge loser of Bulldogs vs Demons and into GF as they have extra points for drawn game
  • GWS win can dislodge loser of Bulldogs vs Demons and go into GF as they have extra points for drawn game
  • Both Crows and GWS win the one with the higher % will go into the GF
  • Lions win go into the GF if Crows lose and their % is better than loser of Demons vs Bulldogs.  (This is the only scenario in which our % counts).

We must win next week!  Or we rely on Lions to beat GWS (by just a small margin)  and Pies to beat Crows. 

We might look back and rue the game we lost badly to Freo after having the proverbial 'unassailable lead' at the end of the first quarter

Again we hold our destiny in our own hands!  Go Dees!

 

Thanks to @dl4ethere is another outcome -  a draw with Bulldogs will see both teams into the GF

If indeed there is a draw next week, won’t GWS pass us on percentage if they win big?

Win big a big thing. Only a couple of points to play with against them but brissy win by a goal anyway.

To make the gf we have to beat Footscray at at their home ground. Not a happy hunting ground. Are we set for another 1987 thriller?

Really bad luck for Mel bloody horrible ,we are going to miss her   

Yes bad news for Mel but we probably won't miss her too much as we have a ready made replacement in Jakobsson who will, hopefully, be right to return from injury. Very much quality like for quality like.

Potentially silly question - what date is the Grand Final? Is it next Saturday or Sunday?

Google searches giving me nothing....

On the Saturday, and there saying it's likely to be at Ikon park, as they don't want to run it before one of the mens games. Kinda makes sense as besides Brissy (who are only a small chance of making it) all other mens teams play on the Friday or Sunday.
