AFLW: Rd 10 vs West Coast

Recommended Posts

Watching footy for 40+ years and never been so nervous during a 12-goal thumping. 

Oh well, no point ruing what might have been, we’ve clearly got the talent to win the thing.

Funny to think that had they been able to do it, the women, like the men, would have snatched the minor premiership right at the death, albeit by vastly different margins.

Is anyone worried about our easy draw? Adelaide will be a different proposition. Great win by the girls but gee have we had some easy games recently.

We really have had most of the games our way. No score board pressure and our tackling have forced the errors in our opposition. We have been playing freely. It will be interesting if the opposition start scoring well and they don't panic when we come at them.

The yips could easily take over if we start panicking. 

Hoping winning form gets our confidence high and we continue the fast, hard and attacking game. Would hate to see us drop the bundle. Though we possibly will need to try some tempo footy if we start losing control. 

We also have been playing in poor environmental conditions. It will be interesting to see how we go when skilled play is easier to do.

They say finals are won by pressure and the backline. In this we have been doing very well.

I think we are on a mission, we will be too, disciplined, resistant, hardened and strong willed.

It wasn't a disadvantage for the Geelong mens team this year. We've had hard draws to complete recent seasons and it took its toll. I much prefer the easier run home

I actually think 2nd spot has some pluses.  There are 3 top sides in the comp and we meet one when there's a second chance, win and we likely avoid the other in the prelim!

 

Tend to agree.

Us and the Lions are the standout teams. I don't fear the Crows this year. I don't think we should fear playing an inter-state granny if it comes to it the only disappointment is I won't be able to go to Brisbane to attend.

I will go to Brisbane if we make the GF (it’s difficult to see Brisbane not winning through). Anyone other Demonlanders thinking of going?

I’m confident we’ll make it to the GF and just as confident we’ll win (anyone, anywhere, anytime) even if up against Brisbane, and even if it’s played in Brisbane. 

What I’m worried about is the crowd size and in particular that we’d be so outnumbered.

I intend on going to Brisbane if we play there (even if it means selling a kidney - pretty sure I’ve still got one left 🤔) but understandably not many Victorians will be able to attend. Therefore I’m hoping that the GF is staged at Marvel or Ikon. Soz, interstate sides, not Soz. 😁

I’ve just read The Age summary of the game. They didn’t have Libby Birch in the best. Can you believe it? She was outstanding. 

Agree. The lot of backline players unfortunately.

Realistically you'd need to put all 18 in the best yesterday.

Did anyone else hear the rumour mentioned on this week’s AFLW Dee Brief poddy that the GF will be played at Docklands regardless of who makes it? 

 

I asked Mitch and Mandy (the pod hosts) about that and they said it will be played at Marvel, it’s just that it’s not official yet.

What about the prelim?

If the GF is to be at the Gabba(?) it'd be good for the girls to experience a 'stadium' final in the lead-up.

True. But I doubt very much the GF would be at the Gabba.

And not the end of the world if it’s at Metricon. We’ve won our last three matches there.

Ah, that's right, they have a 'suburban' ground, too?

p.s. Noticed Zede put her 'tail up yesterday. Waddayareckon? (I had wondered when someone would start to be concerned about putting an eye out!)

I love Edo, tail up or down! I’ll even forgive her for tucking her guernsey into her shorts. 
There’s a lady in the DA, around 80yo and Eden is her favourite player. I asked her why Eden? She said, “She has fabulous hair!” 🤣

Won't be at the Gabba. It's booked for cricket. If Lions host it will be on the Gold Coast

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
