Ladies Lounge / AFLW 2020 - FINALS WEEK 2 - vs Kangaroos - CANCELLED
No official announcement on when this is yet, but we are definitely playing against the Kangaroos who had a hard fought win against the pies.

Perhaps the pies showed us the gameplan to beat the kangas, but didn't quite have the skill level to pull it off.

Hopefully the Dees show us similar against the Dockers before the Grand Final.

Maddy P the only injury question mark to come out of the game, and given she was back out there, i reckon she is 99.9% likely to play.
Which means we will most likely have an unchanged lineup, yet again, for at least the 4th week in a row.

If we could get the injury luck the girls have in the mens game, we might be half a chance there as well.

In any event, this will be a big game and a big test.

Ladies Lounge / womens.afl - Player of the year - 3 way tie
So the AFLW branch of AFL.com.au website (womens.afl) has their own voting system, similar to ours.

They award 3, 2, 1 after each game....although theirs is not club specific.

In any event, they have tallied the results and its come out a 3-way tie and one of those is none other than Maddie Prespakis.

13 – Jasmine Garner (North Melbourne), Karen Paxman (Melbourne), Maddy Prespakis (Carlton)
12 – Kiara Bowers (Fremantle)
11 – Alyce Parker (GWS)
10 – Jaimee Lambert (Collingwood)
6 – Ash Riddell (North Melbourne), Britt Bonnici (Collingwood), Caitlin Greiser (St Kilda), Dana Hooker (West Coast), Ebony Marinoff (Adelaide), Ellie Blackburn (Western Bulldogs), Emily Bates (Brisbane)

Ladies Lounge / AFLW 2020 - Elimination final - Carlton vs Brisbane - Sunday 1:10pm
So new finals system is out and we are now playing Brisbane on Sunday 1:10pm.

All 3 other games are on Saturday.

We have an unchanged lineup over the past few weeks but now we have the option of bringing in Van Dyke who has recovered from her ankle.

Hopefully Harrington pulls up ok.

I doubt any other changes are likely.

Ladies Lounge / AFLW 2020 - Corona Virus forces changes to season - FINALS NOW
As of today, Round 7 and 8 have been cancelled.

Instead, we will get finals starting THIS WEEK.

We still don't know who is playing who.

I suspect it will be
A1 vs B4 and B1 vs A4
A2 vs B3 and B2 vs A3

And then Greens vs Greens and Orange vs Orange.
With winners playing in the grand final.

FWIW...
A1 - Kangas
A2 - GWS
A3 - Lions
A4 - Gold Coast
B1 - Dockers
B2 - Blues
B3 - Dees
B4 - Pies

Which in reality, is probably the worst thing that could happen to us. Because IF we get past the Lions first up, a tough ask as it is, we'll either play the best team in the comp (IMO) Kangas, or the team that has the (colling)wood over us, the pies. in week 2.
Then potentially the undefeated Dockers in the grand final should we somehow make it there.

In any event....we will find out if my mock finals systems is correct or if they go something random in the next 24 hours

Ladies Lounge / AFLW 2020 Rd 7: Carlton vs West Coast - CANCELLED
1:10pm at home against the new girls on the block, the Eagles.

What appears to be an easy game against the lowly eagles could translate to a danger game if we take it lightly.

With % likely to decide finishing order in the finals, this week is one we must give our all. It has the potential to elevate us to a spot where we get a bye in week 1 of the finals.

Got a pretty settled lineup of late.
Question marks over Harrington.
IMO Edwards needs to deliver more and is potentially in danger of losing her spot.

Ladies Lounge / AFLW 2020 - Votes
To refresh peoples memory, the voting for the girls is different to that of the guys.

We use the traditional 3, 2, 1 method for votes (no splitting!)

So in a dominant win against the (other) 'old' enemy in R1, who deserves the 3, 2, 1?

Ladies Lounge / AFLW 2020 - PS1 - Carlton vs St.Kilda

The AFLW girls had their first practice match of the season today against St. Kilda down at Ikon Park.

Was St. Kildas first ever game in the competition today (albeit pre-season) and we handed them their first loss.....of which i'm sure there will be many. ;)

Carlton by 11 points.

No further details as yet.
