AFLW: Rd 02 vs Richmond



Recommended Posts


It seems unlikely that Downie and Gay will rejoin the team this week, so we'll need to go with last week's side again.

I haven't seen Richmond play, but this strikes me as the sort of game that we have historically struggled with. 

Our forward line looked okay last week, but the defense looks undersized. I think we'll need to throw Scott back as reinforcement.

Hopefully our midfield can dominate and we can keep the ball in our forward half much more than we did last week.

Karen Paxman will (all going to plan) play her 30th game on the weekend.

For context, this puts her among only 22 players prior to this round who have reached that figure, and the first to play all 30 at Melbourne. Libby Birch reached the milestone last week with her games combined between the Dogs and Dees.

At the moment, given the shorter seasons, it's effectively what a 50 or even 100 game milestone would be in the men's, so something to celebrate. Especially given it's not guaranteed (although I wouldn't count her out) that she'll reach 50, as that will take another 2 or so seasons.

So congrats to Paxy!

 

For reference, other milestones of this nature that could be reached if the season reaches completion:

Scott (currently on 28 games)

Mithen (25)

L.Pearce (23)

D.Pearce (22)

Cunningham (22)

Hore (22)

Wish this game was at Punt road.

I watched us play part of a casey v tiger's match prior to a dees game a few years back, but have never watched a full game or sat in the stand. 

Just go down  there and imagine !

FWIW I am not sure that the stand was used last week.

Saw on TV in the back ground and it didn't look occupied !

Binman looks like you will have to BUCKET LIST this wish  hoping the AFLW Dees play at Punt Rd in 2022.

Or shall I say " BIN IT" !!!

Just been watching 15 minutes of the dogs v blues game. 
I hope you get better umpires than this lot. 
we had better umpires in the F grade reserves of the VAFA !

Still first to the ball usually gets the breaks. But not tonight. You deserve better.
good luck against the tigers

Go Dees

No change for the side this week. I wonder what is wrong with Maddie Gay. Very good midfielder.

Hope we don't do the usual and stuff up against a poor side. Handing the tigers their first win would be an embarassment to say the least.

As long as we limit the supply into Frederick and Brennan we should be ok. Richmond don’t really have any weapons other than those two.

Also would pay some attention to their 2020 number one pick Ellie McKenzie. She only got 12 touches on debut but went at 100% efficiency I believe.

Agree Ellie McKenzie is going to be a good player but then Richmond will have to put some effort into our #15 pick, Eliza McNamara who got 18 touches on debut and was probably in the top half dozen players on the ground. I would not be surprised if she ends up our first 100 game player. 

Go Dees!

I have watch Casey there a couple of times in recent years. Good watching as crowd numbers were low.

Joke umpiring for sure in that first half.

Bit of unsteady play cost us, too.

Feel like Goldrick was emblematic of our play that quarter - some great movement, good pressure, but there were fumbles that cost us good attacks or gave Richmond too much of a chance.

Having said that, I feel like a few of our better players haven't been sighted a lot so far.

Also... holding the ball or 'holding' calls... high tackle or pinged... yeah, awful umpiring that easily balanced the breeze.

Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
