Season overview

A genuine powerhouse of the competition, with two premierships and a further grand final appearance from four completed seasons (Covid saw the 2020 season cut short), the Crows again look the team to beat at the half-way stage. Not only are they unbeaten in five games, but they’ve recorded wins over Brisbane, North Melbourne and Melbourne - along with Adelaide they occupy four of the top five spots on the ladder, and each team’s only defeat thus far has come at the hands of the Crows. You’d expect them to win at home this week to the one-win Bulldogs and away the week after against two-win GWS, before arguably their biggest test of the season against second-placed Fremantle in Perth - if there’s a knock on the Crows, it’s that their wins against the Lions, Kangaroos and Demons all came at home. That said, their average winning margin outside of South Australia is 36 points!

Grade: A

They can’t have done much more - the A+ will come if they finish the season off and add a third AFLW premiership.
