I missed today’s game so would be interested in anyone’s observations.
I expected the win based on results so far this year but we seemed to get off to a slow start before getting a solid win, which gives us 11 on a row (extending the club record). Great stuff!

Haven't seen the game yet but caught some highlights and Roxy Roux kicked a goal while she was queued up at the Mr Whippy van.

Choc 99 if you were wondering. She's old school.

I’ve just seen that goal on the AFL website. Anyone who thinks that the AFLW skill level hasn’t vastly improved should remember that the blokes weren’t able to kick checkside goals from the boundary not so long ago.

So that whole goal and celebration was just playing up for Heather's camera.

Did she bring you back an ice-cream?

Really tough and tight game in the first half. Some good capitalisation on bad Suns errors got us our first two goals. That and Roxy Roux being a superstar. Start of the third the arm-wrestle continued but both teams upped the intensity and it was about who broke first. Suns broke first and from there it was like a dam wall broke.
If you’ve seen The Last Dance, the way Jordan talks about winning dominance over people - that’s what happened. We crushed their spirit in the third and from there it was a party, spoiled only by some inaccurate shots on goal.
Suns coach talked after the game about some of their team not being up to the level and in the second half that’s what it looked like. Freo looked bigger, stronger, more determined, more disciplined and unwavering.
This team is a force to be reckoned with. It’s just the mental battle to stay at that level, now.

The gulf in skills and experience between the top and bottom teams is enormous and to be expected. It’s like Hawthorn and Geelong playing GWS and Gold Coast 5-10 years ago. Things will even out over time which means we need to take our opportunities now as the comp will only get tougher.

Emma O'Driscoll has been really good this year (along with everyone else) - easy to spot with her flashy pink boots.

How good was Roux’s interview? Genuine, warm, funny. As Polly says, she sounds like someone who just played a game of the sport she loves. You couldn’t get a better advert for the sport.

I have no idea why clubs are so determined to have the male AFL players all sound like a bloke reading the finance report on the late news.

Morgan, imagine if Leon Davis was allowed to say what he thought while he was playing. Or for that matter Daniel Kerr.
