AFLW Draft 2022



Recommended Posts

A long wait for the Dees to get in on the action with picks 44 (24), 49 (27), 72 (39), 79 (43).

But some good news from the first rounds with a few Casey players picked up:

22. Hawthorn - Lucy Wales (Casey Demons)

32. Essendon - Stephanie Wales (Casey Demons)

 

That was some good predicting on the Wales twins by you, @Meggs

Funny, I just quoted your post in the VFLW thread.  Yes, expecting the Wales twins will thrive at their respective AFLW teams.  Looking forward to meeting them against the Dees.

While we wait for the next pick, another Casey Demon selected.

This time it's Charlotte Blair, who put together some good games after coming up from the NAB league. She goes to Collingwood at #56.

It's a pass for the last pick.

To re-cap, that brings the list to 29:

23 existing, Wilson (Carlton), Ivey (Geelong), Mackin (rookie), Chaplin (pick 44), Johnson (pick 49), Gall (pick 72).

Not counted are Colvin and Watt, both on the inactive list.

 

Time will tell, but as of tonight we can say we've picked some future champions of the mighty Dees!

Gee, hope this is true, she is uncanny around goals.  

Does she replace Gaby Colvin who will miss the entire season 7 due to an ACL?

I just see her as s brand new recruit.

If we're able to pull this off this will be a huge get for us! Just adds further fire power alongside Harris.

Some very exciting players coming in, I was sad to see Scotty and Parry go but overall we haven’t been pilfered by the expansion teams the way many others have, we’ve kept the core of our group together and added some quality.
 

Duffy is a huge get! Small forwards were our weakness the last few seasons. 


Losing Colvin is the only big downside this year as she was stellar last season. Hopefully Browny or Wilson as the new recruit can step up. 

23 existing, Wilson (Carlton), Ivey (Geelong), Mackin (rookie), Chaplin (pick 44), Johnson (pick 49), Gall (pick 72), Duffy.

Out: Scott, Parry, Petrevski, Magee, Tarrant, Simmons

Edit: I missed that Tarrant had left, that hurts particularly with Colvin’s injury as she had played some decent footy swinging back. Excited for the season ahead, go Dees!

This has been an amazing trade / draft period for the club. To keep the core of this list together when so many other teams have been significantly affected is huge. Colvin is a big loss, but we have 3 clear best 21 players coming in to replace her. Well done to all involved. If we can keep our better players on the field, another big year awaits.

Once again we are aiming for the top end of the ladder. 

All too much made of this years draft, full of a lot of 17 year olds who won't play because of when the season is now played i.e. end of year 12 for them.  And with 4 new teams the talent is spread extremely thin.  Worse is that all the selections were compromised by the priority picks handed out.  So for MFC picking up experienced players, while retaining the existing list largely was exactly the right strategy. 

Apart from Gall, the others are ready to play this year, and we know what they can do. 

Both Chaplin and Johnston can hopefully fill the hole created by the loss of Colvin ( big ask I know).  The addition of Duffy is another huge positive.  Goal smart and strong, she is what we have been missing up front, and once again is ready to go this season.

Us and Adelaide (Unfortunately) have done well in retaining our lists compared to others.  Which says a lot about our respective cultures.  What is to be seen is how they design eh home and away fixtures and who it favour.  I imagines the expansion teams will be playing each other primarily.

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    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.
