We are down to four. The AFLW sides are playing off for a right to compete in the 2022 AFLW grand final in Saturday’s two preliminary finals. 

Melbourne vs Brisbane

Melbourne will host a historic AFLW match at the MCG, when they host the Brisbane Lions on Saturday afternoon. Melbourne came second only on percentage, with only the one loss for season 2022.

Tayla Harris has bolstered Melbourne’s forward line this year, kicking an equal second in the comp with 18.

The Brisbane Lions earned their place in the grand final qualifiers after taking care of Collingwood, comfortably cruising past the Pies by 50 points in last week’s qualifying final.

The Crows’ only loss was to the Bulldogs by 1 point.

Fremantle earned their place in the preliminary final with an ultra impressive 38-point upset over North Melbourne in the qualifying final at Arden Street.
