First 10 minutes were grim but they’ve raised the intensity significantly. Tough slog here but the fight is back.

Gibbo pushing people around like they were BigFooty posters.

Richmond are a lot bigger and better marks. Seem a long way in front of our team. Getting the rub of the green as well.
Decision not to appeal the ridiculous suspension against our captain and best player is mind boggling, and then our next two best midfielders are out through injury. Brave effort in the circumstances. We have no forward presence.

Richmond getting an armchair ride from the filthy maggots.

They get the frees and the identical incidents, when we should be given the frees, are just ignored.

Our Girls are being beaten by the better team no doubt , BUT the umpiring has left a lot to be desired.

Evident that we just aren't competitive in the air, we have improved a lots of areas this season, however the lack of skill in marking has been noticeable.

I like Gibson in the middle, she can help protect the younger ones like Bowen and Lewis (not that they really need it, tough cookies).

Have to be impressed with the efforts of the girls this year, especially after Hooker sliced her way out of the season. They've really done the club proud.

Super gutsy fightback by the gals.

Didn't get the points, but by gee they showed some real character.

Very proud of them today, excellent showing with our three best mids either not playing or an in match injury, therefore not being able to impact the game.

Good sign moving forward for the gals .

Really need to work on their handballing skills in the off season, especially Bowen - great little player, but her handballing is so weak, decision in close to need improvement.

Geez will we be able to field a team this week? As far as I can tell, Orme was the only squad member who turned out in the WAFLW this week, and McDonald travelled as emergency.

No sign of Gilmore, Liddle, Devlyn or Norrish. Bresland might be back from her hammy I guess.
