AFLW 2018: Round 3 Results

AFLW

The AFLW season is a short one, with only seven matches before the Grand Final. This means that it’s very easy to fall behind the pack after a few early losses. Last year’s premiers, Adelaide, were falling off the pace, having lost their first two games, but pulled off a come-from-behind win again one of this year’s favourites, Western Bulldogs, so they’re now back in the running.

 

Brisbane ran away with the game in the final quarter against Carlton, the previous ladder leaders; Greater Western Sydney notched up their first win of the year against Collingwood; and an accurate Fremantle upset Melbourne over in the west.
