I think you will find it is 1.40pm our (Qld) time and 2.40pm AEDT. Typical of AFL/ ch 7 getting things wrong which they are also doing have playing it out at Springfield. What ever the temp in Brisbane add 3-4 degrees onto it. No matter what the forecast is it will be bloody hot for our girls playing at that stupid time at a stupid place. Not gonna change it so we need to butter up and get on with it. Play around 10-20% better than today and we have a real chance. Will be tough though. Lions are a very good team.

The Lions are an excellent team and the conditions will favour them. Tough ask but whatever else happens we'll give a good account of ourselves.

Gotta match the Lions on the inside. They beat us up around the contest last time out. Purcell and West going to have to have big games. If they get the ball on the outside and start running at us they are hard to stop. Wardlaw very important for them. I reckon Gilliard will get that job.

Will be very special and emotional if Daisy can lift the cup next Sunday.

Come on Dees. You can do it

Perhaps the 1:30pm AEDT is the Channel 7 broadcast start time and they will be giving the girls and the AFLW the respect of a decent pre-game. Having said that they are just as likely to come on and start the broadcast minutes before the first bounce.

Joke of a spot to hold the Grand Final. AFL should hang their heads in shame. Ony hope there are no injuries due to the premature surface.

Until a few minutes ago, I had never heard of “Tulmur” and I still can’t find it on a map. Strange place to hold an AFLW Grand Final.

It's the land of the Indigenous tribe that the ground is located within. 

Boy oh boy WJ haven't you noticed the last few game details with this on under the grounds ordinary address!!

Anyone know about the members ticketing?

Is it Melbourne AFLW members or Melbourne AFL and AFLW members?

I'd be spewing to miss a ticket.

Not 100% sure on this but most likely it’s AFLW members. Probably up to 10 tickets per AFLW barcode.

My Demon Army BFF is quite confident it won’t be a sell-out and she knows about these things just like she knows anything and everything AFLW and AFL. 🙂

The capacity is 8000. Our match yesterday drew under 6000 (two Vic. teams). Bris vs. Adel PF drew 2553. So it’s safe to say it won’t sell out.

This was done for the Prelim Final post from the AFL and on page 1 of this thread.

Well done & good luck girls… 

Whats the Afl thinking playing a GF at a suburban ground with 10k capacity, understand Gabba not available due to Cricjet , what about the Suns ground if Etihad which is neutral ground

Metricon unavailable because already booked for concerts and a festival etc. 

Springfield has a capacity of 8000 (only 600 in the grandstand) which would be inadequate if it was here (in Melb). But since it’s up whoop whoop they’ll be lucky to get 5000 imho. So from the point of view of the AFL, it’s perfect. 🙄

Great game but the girls, but now they would rue that 1 point :(  

We can winner anywhere and we tend to like QLD.  

The game yesterday was great with the pressure and the backline held up very well.  They'll need to be on their best next week.

I think we'll be better prepared compared to our H&A game against them, they smothered us and we could get our game going for 4 qtrs.

Come on Dees. You can do it

Purcell was unusually quiet and West took a while to get going. Both will need to be on from the start.

Agree with Gillard on Wardlaw, she probably won't have the agility or smarts yet but just need to go body on body and give her no space. The only other one for her, and it's not going to happen would be Zanker....so it's Gillard.

The real answer will be to lock it in our forward half.

Need a good 4 Q's from Goldy, Bannan and Mackin this week.

Well done to the women! The overriding feeling of the senior players will be one of relief and that the season starts here.
 

I am sure they want to test themselves to start the GF better than they did last season.

Doing it for Daisy is emotionally fraught. Just go into each contest like Daisy has her career and that is enough for her - win or lose. If they do that, they will win.

I guess Springfield is better for us than the Gabba/Metricon where the Lions have more experience and maybe get 10 to 20,000 fans and be much louder. 

While it will be hot and that favours them, the humidity is forecast to be low so the ball won't be slippery and should help our skills. 

The ground itself doesn't offer them any advantage.  It looks short which might help us in attack.  We can still use the width of the ground to our advantage.  Their best bet is to shut down our ball movement by attacking the player rather than trying to possess the ball.  Adelaide did that and so did North but we found a way to overcome their effort.

Can anyone offer some insight into what is their strengths are that we need to negate from the get go?

    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.
