Recommended Posts

Massive game for both clubs Brisbane have been in hot form as has Melbourne. Harris's suspension will hurt. It pains me to say this but I think Brisbane will win by a goal if Harris was playing I'd predict Melbourne by a goal that's how important she is.

 

Possible team

B: Birch, Gillard

HB: Gay, Lampard, Heath

C: Mithen, Purcell, Paxman

HF: Hore, Bannan, Sheriff

F: D.Pearce, Zanker

FOLL: L.Pearce, West, Hanks

IC: Goldrick, Fitzsimon, Chaplin, Johnson, Wilson

I don't think Goldrick is expected to play, but hopefully we get Gay back.

We look light on for a contest up forward without Harris - perhaps L.Pearce spends more time forward. We really need Bannan to get more involved and Hore to take her chances.

Our last three quarters against St Kilda were pretty ordinary, so hopefully we will bounce back in a big way. A huge wind at Casey Fields would help no end.

Stinear hopes to have Goldrick and Gay available this week: ...at 3.45

A 8 point game for both sides and a chance the create a break in the top 4 position.  

But its also hard to get a read on the quality of their opposition. Freo, Suns, Giants,  Freo has fallen in a hole, suns/giants 1 win each against west coast and swans.   Bit like North smashed sun's round 1 too.  

It will be a close tough game as they always are against Brizzie.   I think we can cover Harris.

I agree on Zanker, think she has so much to offer but wasn't the best last year.  I think opposition put more time into her now.  But she's looked better this year.

Harris physicality is a big loss. Zanker will take on her role but she doesn't have the same presence and mongrel as Harris

The game is at Casey where we have a great record so I hope home ground advantage will sway the result our direction. It'll be tight though. No more than the kick between them i reckon

Campbell and Mackin debut. Gay is also in. Suspensions to Ivey and Harris and Johnson is out for personal reasons.

Big game starting in 30 minutes. 

We have a great track record vs Lions at Casey , altho the conditions there today will be very ordinary.

This is a big scalp to get as Lions will be a major contender. 

Win and we are outright top 2.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    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
