Adelaide getting floggedAfter sleeping on that result, I have a clearer head to think about our finals hopes. Clearly next week's game is a must-win but at a bare minimum we need North Melbourne to beat Adelaide today. That result seems likely given the Kangaroos' form and Adelaide playing without Erin Phillips so we shouldn't have to worry about that too much. It would also be really helpful if Richmond could produce their first ever win against GWS today but that result isn't as crucial given the draw for the rest of the season. Geelong have put themselves in the mix now too but they have to play North Melbourne next week so we have an excellent opportunity to jump ahead of them in the next round if we can get the W against the winless Eagles.
We're alive for the time being and that should be enough to motive our girls.
