Sorry I was late to make the thread today.

Awesome game from our girls so far. Hopefully we can keep it up in the second half. Izzy and Toogood dominant.

Impressive win. I missed the match but have watched some highlights ... which is another way of saying I have seen a few of the goals that were scored. Unfortunately it doesn't tell you how the game was played.
Four questions:
1. Sounds like Ellie Blackburn was shaded (tagged?) this week, so who stepped up in the midfield in her absence?
2. How was the umpiring? Crap again? Or do we have to wait until we play at Victoria Park to get another taste of that?
3. Did Brown continue her impressive form in defence?
4. How was Fitzgerald this week? Did she have a quiet game? (It would be a first if she did.)

I note that Brown was named in our best but Fitzgerald wasn't.

1. Lamb
2. Umpiring was much better
3. Yes, but still has a couple of brain fades
4. I didn't notice her anywhere near as much as previous weeks

A fantastic all round performance today, Toogood finally hitting the scoreboard after being held goalless the last 3 weeks and Huntington continues to cement herself as one of the games elite players and if she can keep injury free I have no doubt she will be the best key position player in the coming years.

Brown in defence has been outstanding and Lynch has been a terrific pickup. It was great to get a win without heavily relying on Blackburn who had a quieter game by her high standards. Georgostathis and Ferris were excellent by hand and foot both at over 70% and Lochland just never gives up and is finding a second coming on the wing.

I thought our tackling today was probably our best ever and the umpiring was better today but still not great although it didn't really favour one team.

It's also fantastic getting games into Hartwig who is going to be a star with her pressure and speed already well above average as well as Georgostathis.

It will be great to play at Victoria Park next week a ground we have never played at before and I imagine it will be a sellout. Our history in the V/AFL was not great at Vic Park (10/44) so let's hope we can improve on that in the AFLW.

Thanks Oliver, great work. Went with the fam again. Continue to be very impressed. Huntington is something else.

I note that Brown was named in our best but Fitzgerald wasn't.
1. I think we had a pretty even contribution in the midfield. Lamb had her usual highly influential game. Lochland was very productive too.

2. The umpiring seemed perfectly fine to me which might mean we were favoured by it; I haven't checked the free kick stat.

3. Brown's form has definitely continued. Her game seems to have risen to another level and she's managing to sustain it.

4. I felt like Fitzgerald had a more quiet game but every time she was involved she was brilliant. It was a good enough game to retain her spot as the favourite for the rising star.
