These teams fought out a thrilling finale to the inaugural AFL Womens competition and they will clash once more in what is arguably the game of the round in season two. Adelaide knocked off the previously unbeaten Brisbane to claim honours in the Grand Final and have added some serious depth to their squad this season. Jessica Allen and Jasmyn Hewett are two new faces that come into the side through the draft, however, the Crows are without Kellie Gibson who went to Fremantle. Adelaide had such a bumper season that they also had the league’s best and fairest, Erin Phillips, who is once again a key component to their chances of going back-to-back. Brisbane surprised many in the opening season but it will be difficult for them to go through the regular rounds unbeaten again, especially since they no longer have key forward Tayla Harris (Carlton) and Sam Virgo (injury).

 

Key stat: Brisbane won six of seven matches last season and drew the other one. Their only loss was in the Grand Final to Adelaide where they went down by six points.
