  1. When I watched Casey this year. This guy was all over it, reasonable shot on goal with good speed too. Thoughts?
  2. Saturday’s match kicks off at 4.35pm AEDT and will be broadcast live nationally on Fox Footy from 4.30pm. Melbourne AFLW team: round seven Backs: Jasmine Grierson, Mia-Rae Clifford, Katherine Smith Half Backs: Daisy Pearce, Laura Duryea, Richelle Cranston Centres: Harriet Cordner Half Forwards: Karen Paxman, Alyssa Mifsud, Lily Mithen Forwards: Sarah Lampard, Shelley Scott, Cat Phillips Followers: Lauren Pearce, Mel Hickey, Elise O’Dea Interchange: Emma Humphries, Maddie Boyd, Aliesha Newman, Ainslie Kemp, Brooke Patterson, Deanna Berry Emergencies: Pepa Randall, Jessica Anderson Unavailable/injured: Stephanie De Bortoli, Meg Downie ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This could either be our last game of the season or the second last depending on how things go. For those who remember the Melbourne V Brisbane exhibition match at the MCG last year will also remember our score being 91-20 in our favour. Yes - it was an all-star Melbourne side against an extremely weak Lions outfit, but jeeez if we managed to repeat that score this weekend then we are a lock to make history and make the inaugural AFLW Grand Final (not to mention it will be the first granny this club has appeared in for 16/17 years). If we win by 70 points, this will boost our percentage over Adelaide's. If Adelaide win though, and by a large margin, then the boost won't really have an impact. As disgusting as it is, we have to hope that the filth beat the Crows next week. This will be the most likely scenario to see the Melbourne Football Club contend for the 2017 AFLW flag. We have Brooke Patterson coming back who has been quite a handy player and may provide some fresh legs for the side who pushed it to the absolute limit last week in Darwin. What's not in our favour is Freo coming off of a win and bringing that confidence in this week. Don't think they will be used to playing at Casey and also do not think they will match our confidence, team unity, etc. Adelaide would also be feeling the effects from the last round and on top of this they have to travel again to VIC to play the filth at their home ground. The scumbags have come off a large win last week and are on a run, and me thinks that their ego will want them to get a big scalp in Adelaide and end their season. Will be very disappointing and very Melbourne-like to throw in the towel and lose on Saturday, but I am confident that we are going to absolutely belt the living christ out of the Dockers and barge our way into the granny. Dees by 70 (or at least we win/crows lose).

OUR team. 'Twas a great win last week against the Dogs and thank christ we didn't have to hear that horribly remade 'Daughters of the West' team song. We're going in to this round with the momentum off of our back to back wins against what is considered to be one of the top 2 teams in this comp. What's working in our favour this week is their best player Brianna Davey is out with a back injury and another key defensive player is out for the season with an ACL. This is a massive advantage having her out as she is probably one of the best in the comp and according to Carlscum match preview, they are resorting to putting Darcy Vescio up at CHB. As always, this mightn't be the case on game day but the advantage this provides shouldn't be understated. Need to capitalise and dominate. They came off second best against Adelaide last week by a whopping 3 in points in a thrilling one goal game. After being so heavily beaten they will be looking to come out firing this week. Many will refer to the practice match we had prior to Round 1 where we got one goal and they beat us by 44 points. I think that's irrelevant now as the team has well and truly clicked and are starting to look dangerous up forward. Not to mention that the Demon ladies themselves will want to make up for the praccy spanking - Laura 'Irish' Duryea (Number 11) looked absolutely filthy so lets hope she irons someone out. This is another MUST win game as we sit 4th on the Ladder, equal with Carlton, and we simply have to get the win to jump over them to 3rd and keep our grand final chances alive. Also looking for Freo and the Giants to get a win as well to keep the Lions and Adelaide stagnant. Alyssa Mifsud found her feet last week and booted 3 majors, giving us a great key forward target to work alongside Jess Anderson. Considering our forward line was considered to be our weakness, it's great to see it finally gelling together. Rocky was back in the team last week and again missed an easy shot on the run in front of goal, but I'm willing to let it slide as she wasn't in the Round 2 game where we lifted as a team. Hopefully she steps up this week and boots a couple. Daisy Pearce again was terrific, getting 26 touches and showing the comp that she's still the best. Kazza Paxman did even better by getting 27, could these two be the first AFLW players to crack 30 disposals in a shorter game? I think we can seriously win this one.
  4. Game is on this Sunday out at Casey Fields @ 5:05pm. Free Entry too, hopefully it's a good turn out. Can't make game but I'll be watching from overseas as the game will be broadcast live on Fox Footy. Good article about the side here - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/aflw/melbourne-has-plenty-of-quality-midfielders-and-defenders-but-keen-to-create-new-avenues-to-goal/news-story/7fe074da4828d88522d79ec7d1f65f2d Player profiles here - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/afl/aflw/melbourne-demons-aflw-player-profiles-for-2017-season/news-story/bbb832ccee571c018e14d8cabd7d3859
  5. Is anyone near Drouin going to the game @ Casey Saturday? Please pm if you are & have space in the back of the ute?
  6. SCORPIONS LEAVE THE BEST TILL LAST by KC from Casey The Casey Scorpions have done it again. Already well known as having the capacity to show great strength in the clinches and to win the tight ones, they are also developing a reputation for coming back from the dead. Last week, the Scorpions won coming from 33 points down at half time against reigning premier Port Melbourne at home but, on Saturday, they went one better against Bendigo Gold at Windy Hill leaving their best till last as they turned a 29 point deficit into a three point win. No other team in the competition has come back this year to taste victory from so far behind at the last break and significantly, the team has reaped great rewards for those efforts. It sits on top of the 2012 Peter Jackson VFL ladder for the first time this season. The win came in difficult circumstances as the selectors were forced to make some late changes to an already injury depleted line up when James Strauss was called up to play for Melbourne and young Demon Josh Tynan withdrew due to injury. Dylan Troutman was picked to make his debut while Mitch Gent received the late call after playing half a game in the development league team. Rookie Michael Evans was also in for his first game of the season after incurring a back injury in the pre season. They joined another group of players in Chris Clay, Luke Hill Nathan Page, Jordan Pollard, Brayden Salton and Tim Smith who between them have only a handful of games making it a very inexperienced line up that took the field against the in-form Bendigo side which beat them by 71 points when they met earlier in the season. Kicking against the breeze, Casey had the better of the first 15 minutes of the game with two of the first three goals to Jack Fitzpatrick and Page. However, the momentum swung from there as the home side applied the pressure and forced the Scorpions into errors. Bendigo led at quarter time by a goal but it should have been much more. The trend continued in the second term as the Gold struck a rich vein of form and stretched its lead to three goals but their dominance was still not properly translated on the scoreboard, a fact that they were to rue later in the day because a late flurry of Casey goals saw had their lead cut back to a single goal at half time. It could have been even closer but for some costly misses by the Scorps in the dying moments of the term. Bendigo made up for lost opportunities in the third quarter when it kicked five goals to one with the aid of the freshening wind. It was on top for most of the term apart from a brief period when Fitzpatrick had a purple patch which went wrong. The Demon big man who was recently diagnosed as a diabetic, kicked a goal to break Bendigo's run and soon after marked well within range only to play on and score a point after the ball was touched off an opponent's boot for a point. The Gold took the ball coast to coast for a goal on the rebound and then another followed. The result was that Casey faced a 29 point deficit with a quarter left to play. It was a tough ask for the Scorpions but the wind had stiffened to give them the advantage in the final term. They also had Jake Spencer winning handsomely in the ruck (he finished with 45 hit outs) and a bullocking Brent Moloney winning the clearances. That dominance was to slowly turn the game but it was only at the midpoint of the quarter that the crowd sensed that a Casey revival was truly on the cards. Evans had kicked truly for his second goal and this was followed by successive goals from Gent, Williams and then Gent, whose day had begun at 9.30am at Preston in the development league game, got his second. Suddenly, it was only five points the difference. There was plenty of time left, Bendigo was tiring and the wind and a truckload of determination brought the Casey team home for a famous victory. The winning goal was a beauty from 203cm ruckman who swooped on a loose ball panther-like and drilled it home. The three point victory was Casey's seventh by ten points or under and it's sixth win by a goal or under and it clearly demonstrated the never say die spirit engendered under coach Brett Lovett. Spencer was Casey's best but youngster Brayden Salton who finished with 24 touches was not far behind him. Moloney finished 20 disposals, 12 clearances and four tackles while Cale Morton with 27 touches and skipper Evan Panozza and midfielder Jordan Gysberts with 26 were also prolific ball gatherers. Michael Evans with 19 disposals and two goals in limited game time in his first outing for the year after a back injury was also notable and special mention must be made of the defence with Troy Davis, Nev Jetta and Michael Riseley all did their jobs along with Panozza and Salton Casey has its final bye before entering into the run home to the finals.

  7. 3 potential forwards if in the 1sts, but who will stand the tallest for re-selection this weekend?
  8. Like last year, the Casey Scorpions will take on Geelong VFL at Simonds Stadium on Saturday in the curtain raiser to the Geelong v Melbourne game. Unlike last year, when the VFL Cats were the underdogs and won by 128 points in an ominous preview of the later game, this year they will start as favourites. And seating will be hard to get for the Casey folk according to the VFL website. Due to the redevelopment of Simonds Stadium (involving the Doug Wade Stand and the Southern Terrace), a large number of reserved seats at the Stadium have been lost. As a result, this has had an impact on the entry details for VFL curtain raiser matches. VFL Club supporters and general public will be required to pre-book general admission standing room entry or a daily reserved seat prior to the match to guarantee their entry on match-day. Please see the information below about Peter Jackson VFL games that will be influenced. Please note: VFL Passes and Club Memberships WILL NOT give you access to Simonds Stadium for these games. All supporters must book a ticket through Ticketmaster. I'll be back tomorrow night with the VFL teams. The Development League team has its second bye of the season this weekend (the first was just three weeks ago).
  9. According to the MFC website, if Jurrah hits his targets this week he will return through the VFL when the Scorps host Nth Ballarat. Great excuse to get out to Casey! http://www.melbournefc.com.au/news/newsarticle/tabid/7415/newsid/133897/default.aspx
