The Hard Yakka / Totally Workwear VFL and Swisse Wellness VFL Women’s #LovetheGame preliminary final teams have been decided.

Collingwood and Southern Saints will play on Sunday (September 15) at 11.45am at Adcon Stadium. Collingwood suffered a 12-point defeat to the Western Bulldogs, with the Bulldogs earning a week’s break and direct passage through to the VFLW Grand Final on Sunday September 22 at Ikon Park. Southern Saints booked a rematch with qualifying final opponent Collingwood on the back of a dominant third term against Melbourne Uni, producing the biggest win of the 2019 finals series, victorious by 17 points.

Tickets for the preliminary final will go on sale Monday September 9 at 12.30pm, with adults $15, concession $10 and kids U15 free at vfl.com.au/finals.


If the Saints win on Sunday, they will advance through to the VFLW Grand Final against the Western Bulldogs.

Sunday's game will be live streamed on YouTube.


Cant wait , hope the women can progress to the Grand Final . If they do we will have to try get lots of Big Footy people there to cheer them on . Might be an exciting day and also a chance for Big Footy people to meet up . If we can get some there and people meet there might be less fights next year , maybe lol.

Disappointing to lose but will hopefully just make the women ready to go for next year . By playing a good side like Collingwood it will be a taste of what they can expect next year . I thought our women played really well but there were a few things during the game that just didnt go our way . I can remember at least three terrible bounces where we were in good position but the ball bounced straight to the collingwood player . Sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it doesnt . Still i think overall Collingwood were just a little better on the day . It will be great experience for the women . Hopefully we can recruit a couple more players to add a bit of depth to the team .

Would have been nice to see the girls win for spud but alas it wasnt to be.

Surely R1 next year for the AFLW we get a home game at Moorabbin.
When they play their first game at Moorabbin i will be there . So many memories of the ground although its totally different now it still will be great to go there again for a game .

Unfortunately for us Sharni Layton was fired up to play well in memory of Danny so well done to her for that. She just got the ball going the pies way all day which 2018 AFLW rising star Chloe Molloy feasted on.

Our girls battled very hard all day and with a couple of pieces of luck could have hit the lead in the last quarter.

Congrats to the girls for a great season and looking forward also to getting down to Moorabbin early next year to watch them play in the AFLW.

Disappointing way to finish the season, but on to bigger and better things next year. Molly McDonald's goal was a highlight.
It was fantastic watching the girls this year, it was nice to be able to go to the footy again and expect a win.

Congratulations to Poppy Kelly and Clara Fitzpatrick who have today been elevated to the senior list.
