Sounds like we're playing Geelong in a practice match at Princes Park on Saturday Jan 19th.

No time or other details just yet, but the date was confirmed by the Carlton cheersquad on twitter.


It's a shame it isn't against Melbourne because we won't play them at all this year unless we somehow meet in the week of finals, while we play Geelong down at Kardinia Park in round 4.

Prespakis needs another pre-season, it actually looks like she hasn’t had one.

Geelong’s Number 1 draft pick Nina Morrison actually did tear it up.

Harris doesn’t look anywhere near it, once the ball hits the deck she loses interest and our delivery into the forward line doesn’t do her any favours.

Number 23 for Geelong (McWilliams) was awesome and was marking everything she kicked 4, and makes Harris look like a couple of wasted draft picks.

Brianna Davey, might have kicked 4, but they were all Josh Jenkins cherry picked out the back goals, she definitely needed the run, I like Davey far better across the half backline, hopefully she’ll move back there when Vescio comes back in.

If we’re going to try the Davey/Harris forward combination up forward I think we’re going to struggle big time - opposition teams are just going to sweep the ball out with ease.

Thanks AGRO...
Will be interesting what happens come the real games... I agree that we don't want to be slow when the ball hits the ground in the forward line.... .. I've suffered enough of that with the men!

Go Blues

Agree with the assessment of Tayla...my daughter commented that she was like the Casboult of AFLW...decent mark but no second efforts.

Shae Audley was probably best on ground purely from guts and determination.

We went on the ground for qtr and 3qtr breaks and Shae and Katie Loynes we’re demanding a lift from their teammates..

Agree that Prespakis looked a bit underdone but mostly her possessions and awareness were classy.

To lose by 2 points without Darcy who was rested, Sarah Hoskins who didn’t play the last qtr after a heavy (illegal??) tackle and Tayla Harris who went off with shoulder injury in last qtr but no real influence..plenty to work with.

Couldn’t agree more you took the words out of my mouth, your daughter is very astute.
