History to be made as Brisbane meet Adelaide in AFL Women’s Final

Thu, Mar 23, 3:07pm by Head Editor

Preview: AFLW Grand FinalBrisbane Lions v Adelaide Crows

Date and Time: Saturday March 25, 1:55pm AEDT.

Venue:  Metricon Stadium

TV: Live on Channel 7mate

The inaugural AFL Women’s season comes to an end on Saturday when the top two teams in the league fight it out in the Grand Final, aiming to etch their name in history.

The Lions are favourites, having been at around the $1.70 mark all week, and rightly so, given they went through the entire season undefeated. They were $12 before the season begun.

They are coming off a lacklustre effort against the Blues on Sunday though, a match they led by 24 points in the last term, before four quick goals to the Blues saw the match end in a draw, 6.1 (37) to 5.7 (37).

The Crows won through to this Saturday’s showdown by beating the Pies on Sunday, and are now rated a $2.15 chance of walking away with the silverware.

Adelaide had to win that clash following Melbourne’s big win over Fremantle on Saturday, to ensure they finished in the top two and thus qualifying for the decider.

There’s no doubt they deserved to be there, having spent most of the season in the top two, including three weeks on top of the ladder.

Four goals to Sarah Perkins and yet another dominant performance by their co-captain Erin Phillips helped the Crows secure a vital come-from-behind win.

One of the biggest talking points this week has been the decision to play the decider at the Gold Coast’s Metricon Stadium instead of the Lions’ preferred choice of the Gabba.

The Gabba was ruled ‘unsafe’ due to the damage sustained to the centre wicket area during an Adele concert three weeks ago. The decision is a bit of a ‘head-scratcher’ given that Etihad Stadium is hosting an AFL game this Saturday just a week after the same singer played there.

In defence of the Gabba’s head curator Kevin Mitchell Junior though, the Gabba does have a ‘real’ cricket wicket, whereas Etihad Stadium uses a ‘drop in’ pitch when it hosts cricket matches.

The last time the sides met was back in round five, it was one of the games of the season, with skill, determination, and strength on display in spades.

Brisbane trailed by two points at the last change, but Lion Kate McCarthy kicked her second and what turned out to be the winning goal in a tense last term with a shot from 40 metres.

I’m expecting a similarly tight game here, with the same result.
