Even spread of performances. We have a good balance, strong across each line and good depth

Harris is a monster. By far the most physical ALFW player i've seen

McNamara BOG. Love how she goes about it

MaGee and Parry will be the 2 worrying about their spots

2 from 2. really solid start to the season

Fitter and stronger with a bit more class when it counted.  Well done Dees!

Solid performance and another win away from home. Hore, McNamara, Paxman, Hanks and Fitzsimons were probably our best. Goldrick as well.  Second quarter very good but we took some nana pills at 3/4 time and snoozed a bit. I look forward to going next week.

McNamara my new favourite player. Great skills and @Chookis spot on with the Langdon comparisons. She seems up and about with the girls tho - like a spark plug. I hope they can keep that midfield group together for a few years - they are all in the 21-24 age group. 

Great to see Harris playing like that too - so unselfish and she got a bit of reward.

But that was great fun! Go Demons.

For those who didn't get to see the game - worth noting for future reference that all AFLW games are shown live on the AFLW website.

And replays are uploaded there as well, usually a few hours after the game.

(Go Dees!)

If McNamara could kick she could be a star

she was everywhere in the first half 

Her kicking for a 19 year old is great, she gets to that many contests as you say. I used to tell some ‘could be jets’ to not wait for their opponent to decide where the next contest was for them. McNamara dictates that. And her confidence is just so refreshing.
 

Also Ally Brown really impressed me. Weird that she has bounced around the last 4 years. Reads the ball so well, decent mark and skills.

Demonland needs to write the match reports. A little bewildering McNamara hasn’t been named in the best in the above report. 5 tackles and 17 possessions, her defensive work was ferocious all night. Bannan’s goal was brilliant and it all started with McNamara’s kick into the middle from half-back to spot up Mithen.

Hard to judge what is an adequate crowd in the present environment but going forward I can't see Punt Rd Oval as a good venue for this comp. It simply has almost zero spectator space between the oval and the perimeter fence. There's some room behind the goals at the railway end but otherwise it's the one lovely old stand.

Princes Park is a better venue perhaps.

The Age lists Melbourne’s best players as: L. Pearce Paxman Birch Hanks West.  

Agree that McNamara should be included in this list.  Zanker as best was the previous week

All 4 debutants from last week, Brown, West, Caris and Harris, played even better this week.  Our depth is strong.

Thought Carris did some nice things. Should settle well into the comp.

There will be a report from our correspondent and best players in that will be as per the report.

Thanks all posters and just watched the highlights. Must have been a bit like Anzac Eve last year, with Richmond's 'Uh-oh!' start but, again like the boys, being behind means nothing to the girls. I do like this 'reset' attitude that seems to be a whole-of-club thing. Also liking that - again again like the boys - the girls have the 'if x is down, y stands up' capability. Great depth and the ability to maximise its application.

Zanker 2 from 2 BOGs it seems?

And Harris, on a trajectory yet? - 1, 2, ...? Gee, she's a 'presence', too!

Good to see KP back and (from the 'gameday gallery') firing.

Gee when they mentioned about lightning and if it happens the teams going off I thought oh no not again. 

But good win and bring on the saints next week. 

Though you were probably referencing the boys WCE game last year, the real oh no not again for the girls would have been the very first game, at Casey, against Brisbane. My family group left the game when the lighting and rain storm set in at half time, and, though it seemed almost certain the game would be called off, Muggins stayed on, through the extended (and wet!) half time. Against the odds, the game resumed, the girls could not adapt to the wet, and we were overrun. Depressing. The inability to adapt to the wet was our downfall in that first year - the later wet game, against GWS, saw us again trying to apply our 'skilled' kicking game, while their 'just kick it long' game won the day and saw us miss the finals.

I watched the Collingwood v St.Kilda game to check out our opponent for next week.  The Saints could only manage two goals late in the final term having kicked a solitary point to half time.  Lucky they did get those goals because it was heading for a seriously major percentage boost for the Pies. 

The difference in quality of skills displayed was chalk and cheese between this game and ours.  Collingwood are no great threat, without Bonnici in the middle, Livingstone down back and just a couple of others, they really lack talent. Yet they absolutely took the saints apart! Richmond had so much more on display. 

Disappointing for me was seeing the condition of Greiser for the Saints who should be one of the best in the competition now.  Has gone backward in past 12 months physically.

    DISMANTLE by The Oracle

    The Flagmantle dynasty has been in train for less than half a season but on Saturday evening at the MCG its hopes are set to be derailed when it meets the team from Narrm. If you’re still living back in the days before the start of the 2022 AFL season then my opening comment probably makes very little sense. This is because very few people had heard of Narrm at the time and most folk could not then have anticipated the AFL’s early season rise of the Fremantle Dockers whose fans went into r

    THE CALM OF NARRM by George On The Outer

    In a fitting opening to the Doug Nicholls Round, the haunting voice of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu spread calm around a near empty, misty Docklands stadium. Meanwhile, the Narrm players, quietly warming up pre-game, seemed to take on the same calmness for their upcoming task against North Melbourne.   Sure, this was the top of the ladder premiership side playing the lowly cellar dweller, but this Demons side is now one who just quietly go about their job, and slowly ever so slowly and ca

    NIGHTMARES OF NARRM by Whispering Jack

    Narrm Time has arrived in our city as the Melbourne Football Club takes the name Narrm Football Club as part of the 2022 AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round. This week will see the reigning premier pay respect to the region the club calls home — the land of the Wurundjeri people and their culture, language and memory. The team will wear its indigenous guernsey designed by Wurundjeri/Dja Dja Wurrung artist Ky-ya Nicholson Ward and what better way to wear it than with a win over North Melbourne Football C

    WESTERN SUNSET by George on the Outer

    It was the top of the table Demons who inflicted their highest ever defeat of the Eagles, thereby ensuring that the sun has finally set on their long dynasty out West.  The final margin was 74 points but it was the final quarter barrage of seven goals which definitively signalled to the meagre West Coast opposition and supporters exactly who was in control.  That was after a similar six goal to one opening quarter, but hey … why not boo and complain about every decision that went aga

    ON THE RAMPAGE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons had it easy on a windy day under sunny skies at the home of the VFL Kangaroos at Arden Street on Sunday. They caught the hapless Roos who were badly depleted by injury on the hop and disposed of them with little trouble. It was the second time in consecutive seasons that Casey inflicted a 100 plus points defeat on the Roos who had no answers for an opponent on the rampage. When the game started, Casey was without three important forward line components in Mitch Brown, Ka

    RISING TO PHOENIX by William from West Perth

    On Sunday, when the Melbourne Football Club returns to the scene of the club’s most famous victory of the 21st Century, the feeling out there on the ground will most certainly be different. The dying moments of the night of 25 September, 2021 at Optus Stadium marked a team rising to the level of a Phoenix, bathing in the cheers and adulation from an adoring crowd in the wake of their premiership victory after so many years of hardship and desolation. This time around they can expect a main

    TO THE SWORD by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons closed off their game against the Southport Sharks with a comfortable 30-point win off the back of a monster six goal opening term in which they put the Southport Sharks to the sword and kept them scoreless.  Despite losing Toby Bedford to AFL medical sub duty, Majak Daw and Bailey Laurie, the Demons still fielded a strong list of 13 MFC players and also managed to blood two more local newcomers in Tyler Edwards and Tom Macrae after adding four debutants last week.

    NO HEAVEN FOR SAINTS by George on the Outer

    Just when St.Kilda thought it was heading toward Saintly Heaven in Season 2022, it was brought crashing to earth quickly by the ruthless Demons machine. It wasn’t a long drawn out process before the Saints discovered how fragile they were. The Demons simply took the game apart in the first quarter piling on four goals against a paltry three  behinds. Even when Membrey was going to score a major right on the ¼ time bell from 15m out in front, he failed to bypass the outstretched hands of Har

    COVID PROOF FENCE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne fans breathed a sigh of relief last Saturday when their team managed to beat Hawthorn and the Covid19 outbreak that left it without coach Simon Goodwin and five premiership players – Luke Jackson, Kysaiah Pickett, Tom Sparrow, Harrison Petty and Alex Neal-Bullen. The 10-point win was meritorious not just because the Demons overcame the loss of the coach and key players but also due to the way in which they survived the tension surrounding the club in the 72 hours leading up to the

    YIPS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a bout of goal kicking yips and a last quarter Box Hill Hawks comeback to record a thrilling 7 point away from home victory on Sunday. With senior affiliate Melbourne fighting a Covid breakout and some injury concerns to their listed players, Casey turned to youth and called up locals Zac Andrewartha, Matthew Johnson and Harvey Neocleous to join Matt Buntine, a local product who was part of the inaugural GWS Giants list.  The team made a slow start but took co

    DEPLETED NOT DEFEATED by George on the Outer

    With Covid 19 ravaging the club, forcing the absence of five players from last week and some more premiership players still sidelined or returning after isolating, it was certainly a depleted Melbourne side that turned up to front Hawthorn in their Round 7 match up at the MCG. Normally, when a team loses ¼ of its soldiers, you would expect a less than favourable result but after the Hawks opened up a 2 goal lead in the opening minutes (and indeed, it could have been more) the Demon machine

    NO COMEBACKS by The Oracle

    Q:  How do the Hawks come back after being 32-0 early, leading at every interval and then conceding nine goals in the last quarter to lose to the Swans by 41 points in the comfort and safety of their second home down in Launceston? A:  If they’re playing the Demons at the G off a five-day break, there are no comebacks. They simply won’t come back! That’s the short form preview of the Melbourne v Hawthorn match up at the Home of Football this weekend. That is not to dismiss the you
