AFLW: Rd 03 vs Western Bulldogs



Recommended Posts

That was a seriously dumb 50 the doggies player gave away there. And Hanks punishes the stupidity.

Hanks is my favourite player. top notch ball use and great composure. Hore was good first quarter but a little wayward in the second.

Fair play to the doggies. they're game and having a real crack here.

Hope Banno has avoided serious injury.

Running game hasn’t clicked today in to the wind.

And a slack period with it.

Backline needs some fresh legs I think. Godly has lost a yard and Birch continues to decline. 

And then it did!😊

AB looks OK, I think?

Up on her feet celebrating goals is good, but she’d also be celebrating in a coma

Clicked with the wind in the last, a little surprised we didn’t look more fluent running and carrying in the 1st and 3rd but sense the players knew they had nothing to worry about. 

Slight doubts on the backline but we are really punishing bad sides with a lot of avenues to goal.

The girls are in great shape. Playing with confidence, scoring heavily and moving the ball with real purpose. 

Hard to know where we stand until we face the Crows, Lions and North but so far we've blown all our opponents out of the water (and to their credit the doggies were game and had a real dip today but were just outclassed by us)

Hanks superb. She's a cut above every player in this league. always has time and rarely wastes a possession. Hore very good. Pearce played well today (and ably assisted by Campbell who i've been very impressed by this year). Lily always gets stuck in. West just barrels through contests. Heath is the female Nev Jetta. tough as. We have outside flair in Mackin and McNamara and up top we have 2 great targets in Harris and Zanker. We have all the tools.

I'm very confident about the season ahead. We're going to be hard to stop.

Go Dees

the wind is spoiling this game as usual. I really don't like Casey Fields.

But luckily the girls do! Their 'Field Of Dreams' as they like to call it, KH just said.

Can't quite gather my thoughts on this game after arriving home from Casey to hear of the passing of a great.

For now I'll pay tribute to Barassi's role in the Irish experiment, the fruits of which are close to our hearts as Dees fans, and that we still see today in our AFLW team, with Goldie and of course Mackin in that famous #31.

Bit sloppy at the back. But Gillard is so promising as a young tall back there. Once she realised she is in 2nd gear and jumps into 4th she will be amazing. Maddie Gay reminds me of a player who wore her number - G Lyon - put her anywhere and she will do what needs to get done - hope her hip isn’t too bad. 

AB didn’t look great so that’s a welcome surprise that it could just be a week. The commentators need to be a bit more aware of the moment - I am watching this game for the jumper but mainly because of a handful of amazing talents of which Bannan is on the podium - a knee injury could be more damaging to the sport, let alone our fortunes in the season or the day - wax lyrical about that for a bit.

    CONSISTENCY by The Oracle

    "I think we have got a team that can win a premiership, and if we get in this year, I don't think there is a team that is going to want to play us. This year is not a write-off, I don't concede that. Not at all." — Collingwood President Jeff Browne. I love this sort of optimism from the Magpie President after his club’s eleven goal defeat at the hands of the fast rising Hawks. It’s consistent with the fighting spirit of the club that won last year’s flag.  I only wish I could say the s

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta
