Credit where credit is due, the suns are giving it everything and pushing us. The key for them will be maintaining this intensity whilst cleaning up their disposals and decision making.

Trac, Oliver and Jackson look too much for them to handle though. 

Yeah I mean the Suns are going at 100% we are at 50%. If we can even it up and get more players involved that will be good.

Rivers knee still not 100%, Gussy hurt his shoulder in that spinorama collision and Smith has hurt fingers on his “good” hand… looks like the injury luck has deserted us.

The make shift defence is holding up well, midfield was slow to start and the fwds not quite able to hold the ball in as needed to keep the pressure on, great goal kicking though.

Can’t wait to see how we “muscle up” this last half.

Difficult to watch.

A few having a real crack, but almost the entire 22 very fumbly. And those kick around the corner to 3 Suns players is just so frustrating; we haven't seen that ina fair while and it is horrible to see again.

Jackson, Trac, Bowey, Tomlinson, Brayshaw.

Rivers should not be playing. His kicking which is usually so penetrating has been horrendous. Langdon running but not getting. Fritsch not going for balls with his name on it. And Suns players waltzing free through the middle time and time again.

If they had King, we would be well behind.

I'm incredibly relaxed. IMHO It's all just good prac for our defence.

Meanwhile Bowey on target for a Rising Star nom.

Hoping Brown gets a few more.

Multi of mel/oliver/brown/bowey is on the table!

No one outside our club will ever talk about bowey, or realise just how much we appreciate him. But he is very reliable.

Sensational Bowey first half.

If we have Lever and Salem we would be 6 goals up. Both can play that game. 
We are running on fumes down back. It’s a makeshift defense with now 2 players who are clearly struggling with injuries. I hope Gus hasn’t hurt his shoulder and is just sore and bruised.

Very true. Still winning with quiet performances from a lot of the team.

Hoping his development may free up Riv to have a crack in the midfield over the next few years

Tracc and Jacko changed the game and Bowey is so smart with ball in hand.!!

Langdon not himself.

 Viney and Fritta doing little.

Spargo and Kozzie and Hunt likewise.

Get them going and all will be fine.

Need more space up forward.

Derm has an amazing ability to read the players minds and tell us exactly what they’re thinking. 

Hey, he was a player from 25 years ago, how could he not know the minds of modern day players.

Yeah, fair enough. Our backline is showing its limitations due to personnel and May is being well beaten most of the time. Although Tomlinson is doing ok, he is being found out in the air.

He's had 18 disposals in the first half and running at 89% disposal efficiency and 307m gained for a half. 

He won't get a rising star this week because he's not a sexy Josh Rochelle or Nick Daicos type.

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.

    DAISY DOES IT by Whispering Jack

    The Gold Coast has been treated to a feast of womens football over the past couple of days. On Friday night, the Brisbane Lions claimed flag favouritism when they knocked the Adelaide Crows off their second placed perch at Metricon Stadium. Then on Saturday evening at the same venue, the Melbourne Demons consolidated their hold on that vacated second spot when, they ruthlessly smashed a finals contender in consecutive weeks, this time the home town favourites, the Suns.    It was a case
