Brisbane just did us a favour. Basically knocked the Dogs out of contention.

Which is quite funny because they have just as many wins as the best teams in Conference B.

That's why Dana ended up staying with Freo. She could get a similar job here with FFC as what WB were offering, so it was easier to stay than go. There are lots of girls with jobs at other clubs. From trainers to physios to development, to simply spruiking the club. That was how North/Tassie were able to get so many girls across - they had a raft of jobs lined up. Emma Kearney for example, is a trained primary school teacher, and they offered her a job working as a youth development officer with underprivileged kids. Works as a rep of NM/T AFLW team during the week, plays for them on the weekend. She's just one - I know Daisy Pearce works at MFC, but there are many, many more.

Dana might get a hefty raise in her FFC salary at the end of this year.
FYI Emma Kearney taught PE at Mt Alexander College which is a secondary school, not primary school.
Popular teacher as well.
Back to our girls, it looks like a late night for those of us not in WA
Go you good things

Bowers best on for us.

Team as a whole need to switch on though. Quite a few lapses in concentration. Adelaide look faster on the outside and are finding loose players.

I understand the AFL is trying to get more games in regional areas but to force the women to play a game in 70% humidity where the skills already aren’t great isn’t great Planning IMO.
In all fairness, the skills are a few classes above what was on display in the Dogs v Brisbane game.

Tough night out there so far. Hope Freo can come home strong, losing tonight is really going to open second place up to any of the four teams.

Getting slaughtered in the ruck which has resulted in getting slaughtered in the clearances. In these conditions, winning the clearance is so much more important.

Still close enough if good enough though.
