    After Round 5 10 of the 12 clubs took up the option to participate in the ORFFW mid-season draft, cut some players and bring in some reinforcements for the second half of the season. The first two rounds and inactive player replacement selections have been completed and the third and final round is in progress with six selections of a total 34 picks in the draft remaining.

    The Manildra Mystix have been the pace-setters to win their first five games of the season and are in a commanding position to finish in the top four, being two games and points for ahead of third place. Reigning premiers Lake St Clair are second on the ladder with four wins and one loss, followed by five teams from third to seventh with a record of three wins and two losses.

    The four teams from second to fifth on the ladder are amazingly separated by just five points in the points for column with the teams in this category being Devils (3,884 points for), Valkeries (3,880), Nymphs (3,880) and Wombats (3,879). Highlighting how important points for could be in the battle for top four spots, encouraging teams to play an attacking brand of football. The fifth placed Wallabies were in ominous form with 940 points in their Round 5 victory against the Nymphs to record the league’s highest score of the season and are on the rise after being eighth at the end of Round 3.

    Round 6 of the AFLW season commences with Hawthorn vs West Coast at Skybus Stadium on Friday September 30 at 6.10 pm AEST.

    ORFFW Round 6 fixture

    @Len ’s Bathurst Belles (1 win, 4 losses) vs @anthak ’s Pomona Wood Nymphs (3-2)

    @ver_redit_optatum ’s Glenbrook Galahs (1-4) vs @Lachlan Brown ’s Eastern Park Demons (1-4)

    @Schmitty ’s Wongan Hills Wallabies (3-2) vs @FreoDockers ' Katanning Krushers (1-4)

    @TheTassieHawk 's Manildra Mystix (5-0) vs @TerryinBangkok 's Junee Jets (2-3)

    @Tracey ’s Scone Sirens (3-2) vs @Peter W’s Timboon Trailblazers (3-2)

    @That KI Guy Vivonne Bay Valkeries (3-2) vs @dmandrews Lake St Clair Devils (4-1)

    The two games that are going to have the biggest impact on the battle for top four spots are the last two games of the round. In the penultimate game of Round 6 the seventh placed Scone Sirens host the sixth paced Timboon Trailblazers. Both teams have an identical record of three wins and two losses, meaning that the team that wins will remain in the mix for a top four spot whilst the team that losses will level their ledger and be up against it to make the finals. This game features the top three players in the league best and fairest with Sirens midfielders Anne Hatchard (22 votes) and Alyce Parker (19) up against Timboon Trailblazers mid Kiara Bowers (19). Hatchard has been best afield in the Sirens last three games to go from sixth place on seven votes after Round 2 to outright leader on 22 votes after Round 5, 3 votes ahead of Bowers and team-mate Parker.

    Round 6 concludes with a re-match of the 2022a Grand Final with that season’s runners-up the Valkeries hosting the Devils who won a thrilling Grand Final by 14 points. The two teams have continued to be evenly matched in 2022b with the second placed Devils averaging 776.8 points per game to the third placed Valkeries 776.0 points. All four Devils starting mids average 75+ this season led by Emma Swanson (93) and Jassmine Garner (90). Whilst midfielder Mikala Cann (77) is the only Valkeries player averaging 75+ Vivonne Bay have impressive depth and an 8-5 advantage over Lake St Clair for players averaging 60+.

    Galahs: 8 for 443 (av 55.4). Demons: 7 for 342 (av 48.9).

    We're about to play a wobbly forward line against the Demons' strong midfield, so could be anyone's from here.

    Ham, Tighe, O'Dwyer, Wall, Farquharson
    vs
    Paxman, Dawes, Kearney, Toogood, Gee, Pearce

    I have us 629 to 625, both teams doing their best to trip over their own feet. Will await final scores for confirmation...

    Looks like the Krushers have gone down again - this time to the Wallabies, who cruised to an approx 150 point win

    The Galahs squawked through by 4 points and remain just behind the Jets in 9th position on the FW ladder after 6 rounds.

    The Blazers managed a 47 point win against the Sirens to sit in 5th spot, ahead of an 8 pointer against Wongan Hills in Round 7 and a tricky Round 8 (Rivalry round) match away to the Demons.

    LSC managed a 94 point win over to maintain a strong hold of 2nd position, ahead of a top of the table clash win Manildra in Round 7 and a Round 8 (Rivalry Round) finale against 4th placed Pomona.

    Other winners were Wongan Hills by 142, Manildra by 147 and Pomona by 172 respectively.

    Manildra are the only confirmed finalist with 2 rounds remaining. LSC, Wongan Hills, Pomona and Timboon are in control of their own destiny and Vivonne Bay and Scone need a few favours in other matches as they look to make a late charge into the top 4 over the final fortnight.

    Katanning, Eastern Park and Bathurst face their own 3 way battle to avoid the 2022B wooden spoon, with the consolation prize being first dibs on the draft class of 2023 https://central.rookieme.com/afl/2022/07/12/23-in-2023-aflw-draft-ones-to-watch/
