AFLW 2022b - R1 vs Collingwood - Thursday night!

Well, we won the VFL.
We lost the AFL.
Its 1-1.
Lets see if we can win the AFLW to break the tie.

TBH, i'm not confident as Pies have a better list which is more settled.
We will probably spend a few weeks finding positions for a lot of our girls as we've been raped and pillaged by other clubs in the off-season.

IN:
McWilliams - Cats
Velardo - Pies

OUT:
Prespakis - Bombers
Gee - Bombers
Egan - Tigers
Stevens - Saints
Wilson - Dees
Jones - Gold Coast
Brazzalle - Pies

FWIW, every game this year, we had 5 or more of those players in our best 21. 3 games, we had 6!
We've basically lost over 1/4 of our talent in the 1 season....and its high end talent.

But....a victory against the pies will help us get over it....

Stevens and Jones are big losses, good 24x7 footballers.

There is another VFL match between Collingwood and Carlton unless I am mistaken.

Yep, that was going to be me go to when we lost this one. ;)

Before Sundays games, there was a chance of 5 carlton vs collingwood games in the space of 2 weeks. Instead, we had to settle for 4.

Brazz rejoins her best mate Al Downie starting in the guts.
In the 40-odd games she played for us, i don't think she ever started in the guts.

I liked Brazzale because she had a crack but she was being overtaken by the youngsters with better skills and more able to read the game.  If the teams are correct and Collingwood is going with Downie and Brazzale as their first ruck combination Moody could have a field day!

I doubt they line up as listed, and yes Moody could be in for a big day!

Functionality wise I can't see them with Molloy and is with O'Dea in the midfield.

Silvagni??

Fixed 🙄

But he would have had a blinder if allowed to play ...

After a good start the Pies getting right on top towards the end of the 2nd qtr. Up 26-12 at half time.

Not insurmountable though.

Mimi Hill hurt her thigh in the warmup.

Still one of the best players on the ground.

Good to see a couple new recruits sorting out the first goal McWilliams -> Austin

Be nice if our girls could tackle with intent.

Meanwhile, what's with the crappy umpiring?
