I get the distinct impression that we as a supporter group don’t really take to Emma Kearney. However, she’s clearly the Boomer Harvey of our AFLW team. I reckon she deserves more love around here.

You're delusional. There isn't a single person in our AFLW supporter group who doesn't love Emma Kearney.

Probably a longshot guys, but if anyone here is from Gold coast/Brisbane, i'd love to catch up at a pub somewhere for our game next weekend, otherwise optimistically, the grand final.

I love her. She is as tough as nails and more often than not can be relied on to deliver when required.

Firstly, let me just say phew.

So glad we overran them, albeit marginally, and then held on for the win. Would have been an absolute ****ing travesty if we'd been bundled out.

Credit to the Pies for playing some quality footy. At the same time, it's Collingwood. So, you know, awesome.

A few quick thoughts....

- Some of Grierson's use by foot early in that First Q was a joy to watch.
- Loving Bateman's work this season. Still doesn't get a whole heap of it but (as Luke said earlier) she's good for a goal or two a game and has a knack of bobbing up at some very opportune moments. Has always had the ability to get into good spots, but in the past hasn't been able to reap the rewards scoreboard-wise. She's attacking the ball and opponent much harder this season which I reckon has been the key. Gutsy effort today. Quickly developing into a very competent footballer.
- Trend had an absolute 'mare, but has been mostly solid in previous outings this season. So let's not go too crazy with the revisionism. Saying that, she absolutely does need to speed up her decision-making.
- While we're on the subject, I love her intercept marking and she reads the play really well, but Randall could do with a little acceleration in the brainbox dept when she has ball in hand, too.
- More good work from Gavalas.
- Bruton a little fumblier than usual. Normally such a one-touch player. But as usual, she continued to work her butt off and had some very important touches when the game was on the line. Ended the day as one of our better players.
- Kearney and Riddell both played rippers. Ash just never quits pushing and working. Hard as a cat's head, too. She's freaking brilliant.
- Umpiring was indeed truly ridiculous. I don't even.
- And last but not least.....dat mark.

Put the girls in isolation at some impossibly remote location, and bring on next week!

We had some mental problems in the second quarter but pleasingly shut them out of our heads. Great win im the end and a shining light during a weird period of history. Our team needs to work on reducing its double-grabbing. Just too many 50/50 balls that aren’t taken cleanly which frustrates me.

Freo. Good lord.
Only watched the last Q....Garner mark was all class.Watched a bit of the Freo game, concerned they are next level.
Thoughts and feeling from others who watch more of the W than myself?
The two games where Freo have looked amazing were against a hapless West Coast and exhausted Gold Coast. They’ve been run close by some average teams including the Dogs & Saints. Got away with not having to play Melbourne or Carlton.

They’re a good side no doubt but very beatable, unlike Adelaide last year.

Melbourne are running out of players big time. Freo play a pretty hard game, in the match highlights you see half a dozen GC girls getting taken out. I suspect they will do it pretty easy against the Demons.

We really need to nullify Gemma Houghton and Duffy in their forward line if we are to face them in the GF. They are very dangerous players.

I reckon Duffy could kick 8 against our men's side given our inability to shut down small forwards lol

It’s the physical contested teams that challenge us most.

I’d hardly go so far as to say I’m delusional. However, if I was I wouldn’t know it - moot point. Same would go for us all. I just made a comment based on reviewing the general responses in Gameday threads. It’s not important, really. I was only making the point that she’s excellent and, probably, deserves more praise. All good.

I agree that she doesn’t get kudos she deserves, she has dominated this season. I think like many stars she is graded at a higher level due to her consistent high output.

Was Tayla Harris reported? She probably could have committed several crimes against the law and she will get off after the crap she went through last year!
