Fremantle Dockers signalled to the rest of the competition that they are the team to beat this AFLW season with the 30-point dismantling of the Crows at Norwood Oval on Sunday afternoon

The Dockers are now on a 10-game winning streak.

Heading into the match, both teams were undefeated at 2-0 and on paper looked like it will be a real clash of the titans contest from start to finish. But, it was anything but with the Dockers controlling the match from quarter time onwards. 

After this afternoon's performance, the Dockers are definitely the premiership favourites this season and are now the ladder leaders with a percentage of 225.5. 

Hard nut Docker Kiara Bowers was sensational finishing with 23 disposals, 15 kicks and 13 tackles (a game high).

Gemma Houghton continued her strong form of the season up forward with two goals from 12 disposals and Ashley Sharp in her first game of the season contributed two goals.

Western Bulldogs (6.6.42) v. Carlton Blues (5.6.36)
Friday, Feb 5th

Bulldog Danielle Marshall, #26, was omitted from the lineup this week. After spending a few games last year and round 1 stepping in for injured rucks, it has been a bit since she’s had the game-time to prove herself on the forward line. We hope to see her back kicking goals soon.

What a round, pride round turned out to be with fans encouraged to wear rainbow colours to celebrate a round that means so much to many.

All of the round 2 matches, apart from the Western Bulldogs and Carlton clash were blowouts.

After round 2, the Brisbane Lions, Fremantle, North Melbourne Kangaroos, Adelaide Crows, Melbourne and Collingwood all remain undefeated. 

Also, it was a round where records were broken in the QClash with the Brisbane Lions recording the highest ever score and the Gold Coast Suns, the lowest ever score in AFLW history. 

The Western Bulldogs held on to win by a goal after two final quarter goals from captain Ellie Blackburn over a resilient Carlton at the Victoria University Oval.

It was one of the most epic AFLW matches with plenty on the line for both teams.

North Melbourne Kangaroos show St Kilda who is the boss in Victoria with a 26-point victory at Arden Street on Sunday afternoon. 

Heading into the match, both Victorian teams came off round 1 wins.

It was a tight contest up until half time when North started to get on top with their polished and cleaner ball movement all over the ground.

Round 1 is truly done and dusted at this point, and while we are eagerly looking forward to round 2 of the AFLW 2021 season, let’s take a quick look at how the international stars fared in the opening round.

 

Carlton v. Collingwood  Thursday, Jan 28th

 

Aishling Sheridan, named one of Collingwood’s best on for the week, had a cracker of a game. She was efficient with her possessions, having 8 disposals for a disposal efficiency of 75%, two goals, and one behind. Two goals in round 1, one in the second quarter and one in the third, matches her total goals in all of the 2020 season.

The Round 1 NAB AFLW Rising Star nominees are St Kilda's Tarni White and the Brisbane Lion's Isabel Dawes.

White in her return match after suffering a season ending ACL injury in Round 4 last year, starred in the Saints defence with a record 20 disposals and seven marks in her side’s nine-point victory over the Western Bulldogs at RSEA Park last Friday night.

She was picked by St Kilda with No.30 in the 2019 AFLW Draft and became a consistent and promising defender. White was among her team's best players on Friday night against the Western Bulldogs.
