AFLW: Rd 06 vs Fremantle



Recommended Posts

This game would usually be a cracker as Fremantle have been a top side for so many years but this year has been different. Fremantle have only won 1 game and a draw. Melbourne on the other hand have won 4 games. With Harris dominating the forward line and Hanks, Purcell and West dominating the midfield I'm expecting the Dees to dominate and win by 20 points. I think there will be no changes after that dominant display at Ikon Park.

Possible team

B: Birch, Gillard

HB: Goldrick, Lampard, Gay

C: Mithen, Purcell, Paxman

HF: Hore, Zanker, Bannan

F: D.Pearce, Harris

FOLL: L.Pearce, West, Hanks

IC: Duffy, Sherriff, Mackin, Heath, Fitzsimon

  • WERRIDEE changed the title to AFLW : RND 6 Fremantle V Melbourne

Thanks Werridee. Aside from the injured McNamara that’s the strongest side we can field. Unlike the early years where the gulf between the top few players (Daisy, Paxy, Elise O’dea) and the bottom ten was enormous, we are now a much more even side. 

The bench you have of Sherriff, Heath, Duffy, Mackin and Fitzsimmons is strong. Just on Duffy she is only going to get better with each game and, hopefully, will be fully firing by the time finals come around. A zippy goal kicker is what we desperately are missing. Some of her highlights below.

For the Demons now it is all about deciding whether we want to be great or just really good.

Got to go hard all game, not just dominate the early game then cruise once we are looking secure.

Yep, we need to get our percentage back above Adelaide, or we're looking at playing finals interstate. It would be really nice to belt Freo again this time around.

West and Purcell have sorted out our contested ball issues, but now we struggle to move the ball with any speed. A couple of line breaking mids / HBFs would be ideal. Maybe Goldrick when she gets back to full fitness or Heath if we push her back up the ground.

I think this is a major reason why we stop scoring after half time. Slow ball movement allows teams to get numbers back, and our kicking is not good enough to consistently find targets inside forward 50.

Freo have regressed significantly but it's still a tough ask to beat them over there. We won big last year because they were decimated due to Covid. Any complacency on our part might well be punished. Be professional and win the game first and foremost.

Crows, Lions, North all need to play each other so will drop games. Let's win all our games and we're in a great position.  Get over Freo and we have a soft run home so plenty of time to boost percentage as well.

And the Pies take the lead with a minute to go with a snap shot goal … and they win by 2 points. Reminiscent of how they won half their games during the Mens season.

IT was a fluke as well. Throw it on the boot and hope for the best. On balance the pies deserved to win though

Kate Hore needs to spend this week on goal kicking practice. Very wayward this year so far. A gilt edged opportunity passed up

She was 15 out, running into an open goal, kicked it on the full. Sorry, but if you saw the Saints girl do it yesterday from the actual goal square, you would have to conclude this is a lack of skill across the competition issue. 
 

Hore is one of our more skilled players, but her goal kicking has let her down all season.

It's horrendous so far. #freekickdockers

She's been reliable previously but this year for some reason her accuracy has fallen off a cliff

Freo are playing pretty well with better skills, hopefully we will wear them down. Think our girls may have looked at the ladder, remembered the thrashing we gave them last time and have thought it was going to be easy 

Tayla Harris is getting it done though

    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
