It's the pointy end of the ORFFW season, with the final round of action coming up with the last chance for some teams to force their way into the finals, and others to finish off the Season 7 on a high. But for this round we're going to order them from least important through to the most important. Manildra Mystix (1st, 7-0) vs. Bathurst Belles (12th, 1-6) What a blockbuster last round for a Mystix side who have beaten all before them, and just have the last placed Belles waiting between them and an undefeated regular season. The Belles have one foot in Mad Monday celebrations, and unless they cause the mother of all upsets, will bring home thew wooden spoon, but also the number one pick. To be fair to the Belles, when reviewing their team for this preview, I mistakingly thought it was the AFLW injury list, because holy crap that is one unlucky team. Katie Lynch and Ruby Schleicher are some great defenders, Ellie McKenzie will be a star and Paige Scott has some ups and downs for a long-term future, but yikes there's some bad luck there with Jamie Stanton, Gabby O'Sullivan, Maddy Guerin and Gemma Houghton among some of the big names going down who would have been amongst the club's best players. The Mystics are premiership favourites and with good reason, they're so well balanced from Chelsea Randall in defence, to Kate Hore in attack, and Madison Prespakis leading a really underrated midfield along with Amy McDonald and Alison Drennan. The fact they have Ebony Antonio to return shows they can get even better. Mystix by a lot. Eastern Park Demons (11th, 1-6) vs. Timboon Trailblazers (3rd, 5-2) Though not quite as one-sided as the game above, it still pits one of the wooden spoon contenders against a finals-bound side. Providing the Trailblazers don't shit the bed, they will finally play in the post-season series, their first in three seasons. Eastern Park Demons could ensure they don't get the wooden spoon by winning, but let's be honest, they'll be safe in the knowledge the Mystix will get the job done. If the Demons win, they move from 11th up to as high as ninth depending on other results, which also drops them from Pick 2 to Pick 4. Personally I'd rather one of Lauren Young or Shineah Goody next season than a consolation win myself, but I'm also the opposition coach and want the Demons to lose, so there's that. Looking at the Demons' team list, they do have some stars, and are a team that is well balanced between vets and youth. Jordyn Allen, Bonnie Toogood, Emma Kearney and Karen Paxman are all reliable scorers, while there's no secret I love Hannah Ewings as a future scorer. It is the Demons' bottom-end that has not pulled its weight this season, which has lead to the 1-6 season. The Trailblazers have a stacked midfield that has even seen Erin Phillips sent to the emergencies, and with the likes of Kiara Bowers, Abbie McKay and Tarni White in there, they have plenty of "number one mids" at their respective clubs. Picking up Alice Edmonds in the mid-season draft was key, filling the ruck hole, while adding some depth in the forward half was crucial as well. Charlotte Thomas a revelation in defence. Junee Jets (9th, 2-5) vs. Scone Sirens (7th, 4-3) I'll be honest it took me a lot longer than it should have to work out the ladder was sorted by points for rather than percentage. Starring at the Sirens' third highest percentage on the ladder of 105.9 per cent looked awesome until I realised that their opponents just don't show up. They have the lowest points conceded and on-field that's great, but in a fantasy game, we call that luck. They have scored more than all their opponents below them though, so credit to them. Unfortunately, when the 'mathematical possibility' gets thrown around for finals, you know you have issues. The Sirens need the Wallabies, Valkeries and Nymphs to all lose, and then we'll be posting gifs of Steven Bradbury next week. Though the 'mathematical possibility' isn't great, it's better than the 'no possibility' which is what is dished out for the Jets. The Sirens midfield is elite with Anne Hatchard and Alyce Parker alongside Nina Morrison. Unfortunately looking at the forwards and mids, there's a whole lot of inconsistency there. Just the five defenders cuts them short in terms of flexibility, but there is potential with Sarah Goodwin and Roxy Roux future stars. The Jets also have an elite midfield, with Ash Riddell, Ally Anderson and Sophie Conway, while Breann Moody and Caitlin Gould is an outstanding ruck combo. The forward line has been hit and miss this season with Dakota Davidson (form) and Kara Antonio (injury) leaving a hole there, but Lauren Butler is enjoying a good season. Just not enough consistency unfortunately for the Jets. Katanning Krushers (10th, 2-5) vs. Vivonne Bay Valkeries (5th, 4-3) Just the one side has finals on their mind, and that is the Vivonne Bay Valkeries who take on the 10th placed Katanning Krushers. A win is the only option for the Valeries, who are battling the Wongan Hill Wallabies for that spot. With the Wallabies taking on the mildly more difficult Galahs, this is key for the Valeries. If both sides win as expected, it will come down to points. The Valkeries are just 18 points off fourth place, and would love to have a spot. Mathematically they could go as high as second if the three sides above them lose, or they catch the Wallabies. For the Krushers, they can theoretically overtake the Junee Jets, and are coming off a win last round. The 0-3 start krushed - hehe - their finals aspirations, though they've been okay the last month. Picking up Eilish Sheerin has definitely helped the Krushes, and they have some great young players like Rylie Wilcox and Mimi Hill who support a strong midfield featuring Hayley Miller and Jaimee Lambert. Katie Brennan returns for this clash which will be good, but they will need to put in a good effort to win. The Valkeries have the other Richmond rebounding defender in Maddie Shevlin, while possessing a midfield that loves to tackle. Though their onball is unlikely to win the 100m spint on Grand Final Day, the likes of Maria Moloney, Olivia Purcell and Rebecca Webster support Tyla Hanks and Georgie Prespakis, with Olivia Fuller and Tahlia Hickie a mighty good one-two punch in the ruck. Wongan Hill Wallabies (4th, 4-3) vs. Glenbrook Galahs (8th, 3-4) If we were talking mathematical possibilities before, then the Glenbrook Galahs are the next step down. They need to not only win, but to outscore their opponents - and the four other teams above them - by 500 points. They have been granted a kind draw with the fixture in terms of it technically been a possibility, but let's be honest, we're just humouring that outcome. The Wongan Hill Wallabies have far more on the line, and realistically, have much greater chance of playing finals. Fourth spot is the Wallabies to lose, and they'll only do that if they either lose, or win and then score 18 or more points less than the Valkeries. The return of Kate Lutkins strengthens the Wallabies, though the loss of Cuthbertson this week hurts. Abbey Dowrick, Charlie Rowbottom and Isabella Lewis might be the best onball group of the 21st century in this competition. Add in the casual W Medal winner Emily Bates, and it is easy to see why the Wallabies are in a good position. The loss of Liz McGrath to injury has hurt, leaving it all up to the young Mim Strom. The Galahs also have a strong young core for the future with Georgia Patrikios, Montana Ham and Zarlie Goldsworthy in there, while Ellie Blackburn is a consistent beast. They've got some nice pieces outside the midfield, but not quite as strong as the top-end teams, which is why they're a mid-table side. Pomona Wood Nymphs (6th, 4-3) vs. Lake St Clair Devils (2nd, 5-2) The biggest match of the round as voted by yours truly in the Nymphs up against the Devils. Both have the chance to make, or miss finals, depending on results. The Devils look pretty safe in second spot with a 5-2 record and the third highest overall score. But a bad week could see the teams below them pounce. Not only are the Trailblazers playing a bottom two side - also the points difference is irrelevant given both sides are on five wins - but. the Wombats and Valkeries are playing lower teams as well. If the Nymphs win, they have to find a way to outscore those teams above them, if those sides are also victorious. They are lower down on the overall points, so need to make up just over 100 points to be a chance, but are not so far away that it is not a possibility, ala the Sirens. The second placed Devils are well-balanced across the board, headlined by a midfield containing Monique Conti, Lily Mithen, Kirsty Lamb and Jasmine Garner, while improvements from the likes of Kate Shierlaw and Alex Ballard have added around the round. The Devils are balanced enough to be a premiership threat, which is why they are second. The Nymphs are in a bit of trouble in the ruck this week given Lauren Pearce's concussion and Erin McKinnon hit or miss. With an underrated side, the Nymphs do not neccessarily have as many 'big names' - though they do have Eb Marinoff - but have high scorers in the form of Jenna Bruton, Tilly Lucas-Rodd and Cathy Svarc. The defence and forward lines can be hit and miss, but if on their day, they can cause an upset. Best of luck to all teams!
