AFLW: 2022 Fixture (Season 7)



Recommended Posts

We've played the Lions, Crows and North. With ourselves that's the likely top 4.

The only other top 8 side we play for the rest of the year is the Doggies and they've had a soft fixture so far. They're a borderline finals team. Plenty of opportunity for us to improve our percentage

If we avoid injuries and maintain half decent form we should win all our remaining games. Hopefully the Lions drop a game or 2 along the way (they still have North, Crows and Collingwood to play)

The one player we can't replace is Harris. If we are to win it this year she will be to the fore. West has been a revelation and Purcell excellent. They have added much need grunt to our engine room.

We're in good shape

Wow the Bulldogs have had an easy run - Giants, Port, Freo and Hawthorn - 4 of the 5 bottom sides. The only top 8 team they have played is North and they lost.

Lions coughed one up today against Richmond

Top spot there for the taking

Well done Richmond.  Kept Brisbane down in the leaders pack. 18 points to 14!!!

Starce suggested they may have been a bit too pleased with themselves after beating us last week.

Great news. I was fearing what the "personal reasons" for her absence could be, but this is surely the very best result. You can feel the love (and surprise!) in that room!

I love the “we were playing with an extra person on the field last Saturday” line. Had all the girls stumped. 😂

Some unbelievably lopsided games, messing with %, could upset final ladder positions!

Case in point… Yesterday’s annihilation of the Giants.

A great win today against a much improved Freo. Hopefully they can bring the same intensity against the Crows next week

In terms of the run home:

Crows play Freo and Lions next with the Cats and Saints to finish

Lions have to play North, Crows, Hawks and Pies.

Pies have Giants, Freo, North and Lions

It’ll be a tough ask for those teams to win all their remaining games. If I had to pick I’d go for the Crows who seem to be hitting their stride. The Lions game will be huge. I hope they knock 7 bells out of each other.

We have the doggies (who haven’t beaten anyone) Suns, Bombers and Eagles. Suns away could be a banana skin so need to switched on but the other games are at Casey. We should win all our games to finish 2nd at worst. We may even make up percentage to finish top.

Really looking forward to the run in to finals. I think we are very well placed, with good balance across the team. Touch wood we don’t have any bad luck on the injury front.

The size differential between the Crows and the other teams always amazes me

I had the game on in the background just now and assumed the Crows had a breeze at their back in the 1st quarter, but no, they just kick it a good 10 meters on average farther than their opponents due to their size and strength

Game from Freo, they fought like tigers and were ahead at 3 quarter time, but the dam broke inevitably in the last and the Crows ran over the top of them

Crows' brute strength very difficult to combat. They are looking very ominous

Hoping North can beat the Lions in this evening's game

We made this Progress Pride flag for this week’s banner…

❤️💙 Daisy’s 50th game ❤️💙

Spewing it’s not at home but hoping many QLD Dees can get to Metricon to support our awesome girls!

GO THE MIGHTY DEES!!!

Watching the 2nd qtr of the Brisbane V Adelaide game and AFLW has officially reached a new standard. Fast, clean skills and some great overhead marking. 

Agree. Very good game. Pity there's no crowd there to watch it.

Dominant performance from the Lions last night. Very impressive. they are rightful favourites to win it. They move the ball well, are a match for anyone on the inside and have plenty of outside run. They're going to be hard to beat

It seems (at this stage anyways) our HOME finals matches likely will be played at…

If vs an interstate side: IKON

if vs a Victorian side: MARVEL 

Extremely unlikely to be played at Casey since renovations are about to be carried out there. These renovations were clearly scheduled for now BEFORE season 7 was planned.

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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
