Only positives for Tigers and Pies despite defeat, Roos and Crows deserved preliminary finalists

The AFLW time is down to four teams vying for premiership glory after the semi-finals were run and received.

North Melbourne continued their increase from eighth before the finals started out, having revenge on Richmond following their thrilling attract in the very last property-and-away spherical although Adelaide edged Collingwood in a very low-scoring scrap to e-book a date with flag favourites Brisbane.

Here is how all four groups executed in the 3rd-last weekend of the time.


The Tigers had been lulled into a bogus sense of security this finals series by getting put into the leading four.

Regardless of their disappointing reduction to the Kangas, I think they can even now be very pleased of what they completed this year, and they will ideally use it to establish an even far more prosperous group upcoming season.

Monique Conti experienced a extremely pleasing recreation, to enjoy kicking a purpose and having 21 disposals. Courtney Wakefield kicked a aim in her past at any time AFLW video game, which was a pretty bitter-sweet instant for an icon of women’s football.

Improved luck future season, Richmond.

North Melbourne

The Kangaroos set on a exhibit versus the Tigers and proved that they deserved to be a single of the leading four sides in the AFLW level of competition this period.

I have spoken about energy of routine just before, but North Melbourne experienced arguably the hardest fixture all season, having to enjoy towards all eight of the other top 9 teams.

In opposition to the Tigers, the Kangas have been well prepared, came in with a game strategy, and executed it to perfection.

On to the Demons up coming weekend – if the Kangas are likely to acquire that, they are going to require to choose their activity to an even increased degree.


The Crows arrived out firing all over again this week and defeat their personal report for the speediest aim in AFLW heritage in their semi closing gain above Collingwood.

But if they are going to beat the Lions in the preliminary next 7 days, they are going to have to continue on this development of scoring targets early and actually place the force on the Lions.

Anne Hatchard had a outstanding game, kicking a goal and laying 6 tackles, when ruck Caitlin Gould experienced a amazing seven clearances and 28 hitouts, which genuinely established her crew up for victory in the center.

The Pies under no circumstances really stood a opportunity in opposition to the Crows, and the only rationale they have been ready to stay close in this sport is due to the fact of the weak temperature and the situations it developed.

Collingwood, during the whole year and yet again from the Crows, have had way also lots of skipped pictures and squandered alternatives in entrance of purpose.

I’m actually fired up to see what the Pies do with this squad in the off-season, mainly because they truly feel like a football club that can only definitely make improvements to on what they already have. They need some extra workforce cohesion and some much better coaching and they could be a authentic risk arrive period 8.

Better luck up coming time Collingwood.
