Job done! Awesome work girls. Love how often they adjust at half time and stomp a team from a defecit. Grit and composure.

Take a bow Bates, Wardlaw and, as usual, the entire defence.

Was worried we’d have no spark without the Woosh, but we rose to the occasion.

In locker talk players were asked who they wouldn’t to sit next to on the plane and Dakota was a favourite nomination

There is a gameday thread, and with half posting in 1 and half in another it is hard to get a coherent view. Mods, make your minds up - or someone.
Pretty clear. There's game day threads for game days and this one for more general chat. Up to people to use the tools appropriately

Crowd numbers well up on round 1 mainly due to Fee v WCE game.
Gold Coast did very well to get that number against new team Richmond at Metricon.

DOGS 12 v MEL 32......3133

Crowd numbers should be taken as an extremely rough guide only. Last week they said we had 3002 people in attendance but there's no one at the gates actually counting anyone. It's a total guess and I think they made it a precise number to make it looks like it's actually counted.
Being un-ticketed it is hard for them to make an actual count.

Personally I think that a 6k attendance on average is ok.

Yes i agree.
They just need to keep getting people to the games especially young girls.
Suburban grounds getting 6,000 is good and still creates a great atmosphere. Also closer to the players.
It is all about growing the game for women/girls.

Crowd numbers all depend on who is playing whom and where. Also weather is a factor.

For me the only disappointing attendance number was Dogs v Mel with 3133.
Two Melbourne teams playing in Melbourne should draw more than that figure.
These two teams were also the first Club's in the competition. Although the players were from all over the place.

So WCE basically just paid half their list from one games gate takings.

While every other team will be happy if that’s their season attendance.
