Really looking forward to seeing what the two Demon debutants can bring to the team.  With such a short AFLW season, a win is very important, and this game presents as a great opportunity to stamp our credentials as genuine contenders.  Go Dees.

The season heats up from here. No more soft opponents (other than Carlton in Rd 10)

Tough game. Their midweek game v the Suns was a training drill so i don't expect the 4 day turnaround to be too much of a factor tonight 

We'll need to play to our maximum to win. Need big games from the midfield group in particular. And I would like to see us bring Bannon into the game more. She has devastating leg speed. Find out how tired the Lions actually are

Heart says Dees, head says Lions

Massive game tonight. We probably need to win 2 of next 3 to finish top 4, and possibly all 3 to finish top 2, given our (relatively) poor percentage.

Purcell was a great get for the team, and I am looking forward to her debut.

I agree that we need to find a way to bring the likes of Bannan, Hore and Zanker into the game, particularly inside forward 50, as they are such tough match ups for most teams.

I'm nervous!  Brisbane are good on every line and when they're on, they're on.

A win would be massive, a loss probably means we're just making up the numbers. Regardless of the outcome, I hope we can show our best, which we simply haven't yet this season. A good start is on top of my wish list.

Best of luck to Purcell and Gillard for their first games as Demons.

They looked really good in their last game albeit against mediocre opponents. But much better than us against Gold Coast a week or so before.

    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.

Williams yelling out to players to get their hands off hips during drills. Gus looks fine to me. Absolutely., first two mins of match sim and his kicking is exquisite on both sides. He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
