I don't know if you're into sci-fi,K, but if you or anyone could recommend a good sci-fi from Netflix it'd be much appreciated. Not into hairy monsters, green blood, exploding heads (though loved Mars Attacks), fancy killing devices, death and killing but rather a sci-fi with at least a modicum of intelligence (loved 2001, Contact, Solaris (both versions), interstellar...).
@Baggers Not a lot on Netflix at the moment. Better ones on Stan.
Tau is probably the best one i've come across on Netflix, but again, better ones on Stan.
I'd try and track down Ex Machina if you haven't seen that one. Not sure what platform its on at the moment. EDIT: Its on Stan
I've also watched I Am Mother and Circle. Nothing like 2001 level, but again, Netflix is lacking in that area IMO.
We can only control what we can control and as a result, we need to be fully focused on getting a win. Without it, finals are not going to happen. Even with it, depending on other results, finals might not happen.
After a solid effort against Freo, we should have an easier week this week against Gold Coast. However, we can not take them lightly as if we are any chance of making finals, we need to bury our next 2 opponents and increase our %.
Friday 'night' match is something a little different at this time of year and it will give us a short week, especially since we have to travel! Not sure a 5-day break after a gruelling match is what we need right now, but if wanna contend, we can't make anymore excuses.
My predictions... In: Walker Out: Walker
I've been calling for Al Downies head the last few weeks and while she was far from impressive, her playing down back has freed up Harrington who has put in her best 2 games of the year courtesy of this.....so Downie stays....for now.
Tough ask to come up against a rampaging Freo, especially after a thumping win against the Eagles by 11 goals. But this is our task.
At least we play on our home deck.
Looks like we'll be missing Mimi Hill after her knee injury today. I reckon Al Downie could be an out (3rd week running?) due to form and perhaps injury after her hit today.
Bring in Harris and.....i'd like to say Brooke Walker, but i think she is 1 more week away unfortunately. They will probably bring in Jess Edwards, although i'd probably prefer to blood some new blood.....maybe Winnie Laing gets the call up to help in the midfield. Potential to welcome back Daisy Walker too. Otherwise Courtney Jones could add some pace.
It has been graded as.... Careless Medium Impact High Contact.
She can take 1 week suspension with an early plea.
We have until 11am tomorrow to respond.
I'm not sure which angle we'd choose to attack, but considering Sarah Hosking was able to take her kick....and played out the game and would surely back up Maddie P in any tribunal meeting (They hugged after the game).....i don't know the charges can stick.
The AFLW captains and leadership groups have been announced.
We have continued with co-captains - Katie Loynes and Kerryn Harrington. We have 3 more in our leadership group with Al Downie, Nic Stevens and Darcy Vescio.
But it seems our (former) AFLW girls are in demand.
* Former carlton captain Bri Davey has been named as joint captain with CSC's own Steph Chiocci over at Collingwood * And St. Kilda have gone for 4-captains. 2 of which are former Carlton players continuing on from captaincy duties last year - Rhi Watt and Kate Shierlaw. Also ex-blue Tilly Lucas Rodd is also apart of the leadership at the saints meaning 2 of 4 captain, and 3 of 6 leaders are ex-navy blues. * Over at Richmond, yet another ex-blue, Sarah Hosking, has been named vice captain behind Katie Brennan. * Geelong also have plenty of Carlton influence. New vice captain, Jordan Ivey, wore navy blue on 2 occasions previously. Maddy Keryk also joining the leadership group at the cats after a couple years at Carlton. * Down at Melbourne Maddy Gay joins the leadership group after a successful carlton career.
Captains - Bri Davey*, Rhi Watt*, Kate Shierlaw* Vice Captains - Sarah Hosking, Jordan Ivey Leadership group - Tilly Lucas-Rodd, Maddy Keryk, Maddy Gay
* Sharing captaincy
There are more ex-carlton players in leadership group than current carlton players in our leadership group!
Credit goes to the club who has fully embraced the AFLW and has worked towards building a great side, with great coaches and a great culture.
Most of the players mentioned above (besides Hosking and Davey) were deemed not good enough to be on our list, yet are good enough to be in other clubs leadership groups! Thats a big tick of approval for what we are doing.
FWIW, Maddy Prespakis was ranked 23 last year, pretty sure she will make the top 10 this year. Our new recruit Elise O'Dea was ranked 14th last year.....but did not make the cut this year. Talent pool has increased dramatically. No other Carlton players were on the list last year.
A sure sign the AFLW competition is getting stronger and stronger.
