AFLW 2020 Rd 2: Carlton vs Collingwood at Ikon on Sunday

It will be interesting to see how Collingwood play this week, having stolen Davies. It will also make next weekend's game have a little spice. I'm hoping we can keep our run against the Meat Pies going.

I'd be playing McEvoy on Davey and send a message that we don't need you, you have been replaced.

I note that the club has refused to acknowledge her since she left.
On 'Behind the game changers' they freely talk about previous players in regards to past stories, habits and what not. When the player in question was Bri Davey they refused to name her and said 'we wont talk about her will we' or words to that effect.
I think players are very bitter, still, towards her and they'd be keen to ensure she knows she made the wrong call.

Davey was taken from the ground with a lower leg injury late in the 3rd quarter today.

She appeared to be in a lot of pain, had the stretcher come out to her, but she hopped, and then limped off the ground without it in the end. Rules state that if a stretcher comes out, you are done for the day. So she may have been good enough to coe back on, but we'll never know.

The injury itself occurred in a marking contest, appeared to get a knock on her left leg, below the knee. Potential for a break, possibly a PCL, but also possibly just a bone on bone crunch/stinger.

Fingers crossed she needs a week off. ;)

Indeed.
I can understand why the girls are still angry with Davey. I am too.

This a is an aspect of AFLW that will show itself as a stark contrast to AFL, it's highly highly unlikely the girls will be having a friendly beer with Davey after a match.

I would prefer it if the person we can’t mention  ;) was fit to play.  It would mean that Collingwood have no excuses and it would also give our players an opportunity to work out their frustrations/anger  :)

Nah, f*** em. Let them have their excuses. This will be their 4th excuse on why they lost to us. ;)

Incidently, the Magpies are the only team above us on the combined ladder, albeit with a mere 3% of difference...345% to 342%
next best is 278%

They've got their excuse so we'd better flog them by a fair margin; 4 goals will do nicely :)

It will be interesting to see as a spectacle how the girls handle today's blustery conditions,

Even at the level of power and run shown in the AFL, games conducted in very strong winds can become a error riddled slug-fest. I fear today might be look closer to junior football that professional adult sport.

It will be a significant test for the bona fide of Harf's flexible game plan.

Harris looks to be beaten convincingly by Livingston. No impact at ground level, and not much of a target in the air.
This digital world is too much for us insects to understand.

Our girls are being smashed around the football, looks like Nthmond's tactics weren't just an aberration! :o

Tayla looks like she lacks run, might be a bit of a side-effect of the boxing training but I suspect it's mainly the opposition tactic to stop her run at the ball. She needs to have a chat with Levi. Plus, I'm not so impressed with our flexible tactics if they are to kick to the person who is standing alone besides two or three opponents.

Presparkis is a gun, best AFLW footballer by some margin!

Loynes and Harrington playing under duress.

The ball barracking for Collingwood at every bouncing opportunity

A goal to the opposition in the first 10 seconds of the game.

Prespakis being taken out of the game.....well as much as anyone has managed to do so far in her short career.

Inaccurate kicking at goal.

.....and we are still only 2 goals down.
