    Heat Policy

    The AFLW heat policy will be in effect on Friday night.

    The AFL uses the ‘bulb’ to determine heat and humidity levels on a match-by-match basis. The forecast for Darwin on Friday is 34 degrees with a medium chance of showers.

    As a result of the heat policy, the quarter and three-quarter time breaks increased from six-and-a-half minutes to eight minutes with teams also able to leave the ground. The half-time break will be increased from 16 to 20 minutes and teams can have two extra water carriers.

    Team News

    Adelaide

    The Crows have named an unchanged team for Friday night’s AFLW clash with Fremantle in Darwin.

    Co-captain Erin Phillips, who sat out the second half of Adelaide’s win over Carlton last weekend because of quad soreness, will play against the Dockers.

    Onballers Sally Riley and Georgia Bevan are the emergencies.

    The match at TIO Stadium is a ‘home’ game for the Crows, who have a partnership with AFL Northern Territory.

    Adelaide’s squad includes a host of players with Territory ties, including joint-vice captains Riley and Ange Foley, defender Stevie-Lee Thompson, forward Abbey Holmes, midfielder Sophie Armitstead and utility Jasmyn Hewett.

    As a Darwin-based member of the senior leadership group, Foley will captain the team on Friday night.

    Fremantle


    Fremantle have made two changes to their team as they prepare to take on reigning premiers, Adelaide in Darwin on Friday night.

    Tiah Haynes and Tayla Bresland replace Belinda Smith and Emily McGuire who have been omitted from the team that lost to Greater Western Sydney at Fremantle Oval last Saturday.

    It will be the first time Bresland has played for Freo in 2018, the defender didn’t miss a game in 2017 but a knee injury ruled the 22-year-old out of the first five rounds of 2018.

    Haynes has only played one game for Freo this year, the 24-year-old was omitted after the round one loss to the Western Bulldogs at Whitten Oval.
