The Crows were determined to defeat the Dees and not have a repeat of round seven when the Dees thumped them by 28 points at Casey Fields. 

Collingwood were the best team going undefeated until round seven and were trying to make their maiden AFLW grand final, but the Lions were able to hold on by four points to progress through to their third AFLW Grand Final.

Week 1 Finals Wrap Up:

Australia

The first week of the AFLW finals series was enthralling to watch and from the two elimination finals, Melbourne and Collingwood advanced to preliminary finals week. 

Melbourne showed that they mean business in 2021 defeating a Fremantle Dockers side that was left empty last year after their finals series was cancelled due to the coronavirus.

The Dockers were the best team of 2020 and of the finals series last year and were hoping to be the best finals team in 2021, but it was not meant to be. 

North Melbourne had heartache from the 2020 season like Fremantle, because they had advanced through to the second week of the finals but the coronavirus crushed their finals dreams as well.

Crows are the minor premiers in 2021, after a classy win

Australia

What a superb performance from the Adelaide Crows, they were too strong for Collingwood, winning by 14-points to take top spot and the minor premiership in 2021. 

The Crows will have a week off next week, as they have booked a home preliminary final in the second week of the 2021 NAB AFLW finals series. 

The Crows pressure was relentless on Sunday afternoon at Norwood Oval.

They showed the Pies and the rest of the competition that they will again be the premiership favourites this season, as they recorded the 4.7 (31) to 2.5 (17) win to finish their home and away season. 

The Crows will have a week off and try to make history and become the first three time AFLW premiers.. 

With top spot up for grabs, the Adelaide Crows brought a finals type intensity and Collingwood were unable to match it with the Crows.

Footy hearts still beating in South Africa

Africa

Footy in South Africa, like most parts of the world shut down when Covid-19 hit early in 2020.  Despite the efforts of citizens and authorities there are still around 110 deaths a day (7 day average) occurring in the nation attributed to the virus.  This has come down from almost 600 deaths per day at the last peak.. 

 

Across the nation a number of other sports have resumed and in the North West province some former AFL South Africa employees want Aussie Rules to start again.   During 2020 the development officers who were previously employed had to be stood down as footy was unable to be played throughout the nation.

Eagles inflict further pain onto struggling Cats in 2021

Australia

West Coast Eagles proved too strong for Geelong, after some second quarter brilliance from Indigenous woman Imahra Cameron steered her side to a massive 39-point victory at Mineral Resources Park on Monday twilight. 

Cameron nailed through three goals in six minutes and this quick succession of goals helped to establish the 8.5 (53) to 2.2 (14) win at Perth. 

It was a happy monday for the Eagles, but a sad one for the Cats as they are still without a win after seven matches and the Eagles have recorded two wins this season.

It was Cameron's best match of the season, as she everything she touched was quality. 

She only had six disposals for the match to go along with her three goals. 

On the Irish front for the Eagles, sisters Grace Kelly and Niamh Kelly were lively with two goals each.

Round 6 AFLW Wrap Up:

Australia

Round six was a round where all the top teams flexed their muscles with massive wins.

Collingwood showed once again why they are the premier team in the competition this season keeping their perfect record intact, after they were able to take their game to the next level and win convincingly when challenged by the Western Bulldogs.

Adelaide Crows kicked their highest ever score of 13.7 (85) and almost scored the highest ever score in the competition, but were one point shy of the Western Bulldogs all-time score. 

Collingwood's Chloe Molloy showed why she is a star of our game with her forward pressure and two goals when her Pies had all the momentum in the third term. 

After six rounds, Molloy leads the AFLW goalkicking along with Erin Phillips and Gemma Houghton with 11 goals.

The Dogs were left shellshocked and did not have any answers to stop the dominant performance from the Pies.
