It's fair to say we face a different team to the one that beat us by a narrow margin back in R9. Ellie Blackburn and Brook Lochland are two notable new faces from that R9 Western Bulldogs side and they are stacked with AFLW talent this week. Lochland has only stepped out for the Dogs in four games but was BOG for two of them and in their best for the other two so she could be a handful.

For the Tigers Monique Conti, Alice Edmonds, Courtney Wakefield and Alana Woodward didn't play in that R9 clash so we are fielding a stronger side even allowing for Katie Brennan being absent. Lisa Davie returns to strengthen our backline as Akec Makur-Chuot has a rest. Maddy Edwards returns and Maddy Baldwin and Rachel Poke make their yellow and black debuts this week

I think our back six are strong enough to keep the Bulldog forwards in check so once again it will be a battle in the midfield that will determine the outcome. It will be interesting to see if a Conti v Blackburn clash happens and if it does it will just about be the match up of the year. The possible Frederick v Spark match up is also one well worth watching. These sides could meet again in an Elimination Final in a few weeks so it wouldn't surprise if both teams keep some moves up their sleeves for more important times.

I'm tipping the Tigers to take advantage of playing at home and coming away with the win in a tight hard contest.

More on our first gamers.....

Maddy Baldwin - the 173cm Bendigo Pioneers midfielder is returning to the field after a knee injury kept her out of the U18 NAB Womens season.

Bendigo Pioneers Female Talent Coordinator Emma Tomlins:: “Maddy hurt her knee late last season and we haven’t seen a lot of her yet this pre-season" "She’s one of those players that just gets the job done and stands out when you don’t think she’s going to.”

Rachel Poke - The Old Xaverian was a former basketballer with Nunawading Spectres and went on to secure a scholarship with Murray State College in Oklahoma USA but always had yellow and black running through her blood.

Excellent write up as usual TigermanM2
would you know what's going on with Jac Graham who hasn't been seen since round 11 v Hawks?
Is she being rested or is she injured?

Yeah saw this coming, whether it's AFL, VFL, VFLW we can't seem to beat the bulldogs
They sure seem to have the wood on us!
Who ever was playing on E. Georgostathis and D. Marshall(3 goals each), they both sure had a dirty day
better luck next time we meet them

Our forward line seemed a little disfunctional today as the dogs seems to rebound it out at will.
Our midfield seemed to break even after the first 5 minute onslaught from the dogs.
Our pressure was just a little off. Conti was really good today.

Think the scoreboard did flatter the dogs in the end.

Not sure Stan. Must be some issue as it’s too long to rest. Very little injury info coming from the club re our VFLW team so maybe that’s something they can improve on. Hannah Burchell is another who’s been missing a while and I was hoping Christina Bernardi might have been back by now. On the positive Katie Brennan is back from her holiday so hopefully she plays a part in finals. We’ve really missed her.

VFLW Tigers downed by Bulldogs
Genevieve Thorpe, richmondfc.com.au

The VFLW Tigers have been outplayed by the Western Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon, falling to a 43-point loss at the Swinburne Centre.

The 3.2 (20) to 10.3 (63) defeat broke the Tigers’ winning streak following two triumphant wins over Williamstown and Carlton.

The Bulldogs opened the floodgates from the first bounce and scored a goal per minute for the first three minutes of the game, securing an early 18-point advantage.

The Tigers hit back at the end of the first quarter when the ball was passed through the Bulldogs’ defence.

Sabrina Frederick pounced on the loose ball and slotted the Tigers’ first of the day with an impressive soccer goal off her left boot.

The Tigers dialled the intensity up a notch in the second term, which resulted in a goal drought for both sides.

729823


Recently-signed AFLW Tiger Kodi Jacques proved to be a valuable asset for the Tigers as she relentlessly drove the ball forwards, racking up a team-high six clearances to go with 14 disposals and five tackles.

A score recount at half-time awarded the Bulldogs with an extra point, extending their lead to 18 points at the main break.

The third quarter commenced with a duo of goals for the Bulldogs.

While the ball remained in the Tigers’ forward 50 for the majority of the third quarter, Richmond was unable to capitalise as the Bulldogs hindered the Tigers’ opportunities.

Richmond’s sole goal of the third term went to Jenna Colwell, who was celebrating her 50th VFL game, after she marked a pass from Frederick in front of goal.

The Bulldogs crammed in a final third-quarter goal minutes before the siren, which elevated their lead to 29 points at the last break.

The Tigers had a moment of celebration in the fourth term when Alana Woodward booted her first major of the season.

Woodward was ruthless as she showcased her trademark intensity, laying a team-high seven tackles.

She had the challenging task of manning up against some of the Bulldogs’ best midfielders and performed admirably.

Despite the Tigers’ efforts, the Bulldogs kept the ball on their terms for the remainder of the game, and they surged home with a string of four goals to secure the win.

729824


As a result, the Bulldogs leapfrogged the Tigers on the ladder, where they now sit in third and fourth place respectively.

Monique Conti impressed with a team-high 21 disposals along with three clearances and four inside-50s, as she and Jacques formed a lethal midfield combination.

The VFLW Tigers will face the Southern Saints in the final round of the home and away season next Saturday, August 24 at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, Sandringham at 12.00pm.
