Round 3 of the AFLW gets underway on Friday February 8 when North Melbourne take on the Western Bulldogs and there are five games in store for the weekend.

Here is our preview of the action. 

Friday 15 February, 7.15pm at University of Tasmania Stadium

This shapes as a beauty to open up the weekend and both sides are undefeated after two rounds. The winner will jump to the top of Conference A and it is the Kangaroos that should be hard to beat. The newcomers are capable of some heavy scoring and with the former Bulldog Emma Kearney in top form they can make it a perfect start. 

Saturday 16 February, 4.45pm at Blacktown International Sportspark

It is now or never for both GWS and Carlton with the two sides yet to register a win between them in AFL v3. The Giants were unlucky in their opening game before putting on a wasteful display against the pacesetters in North last weekend. Daniel Harford's Carlton showed some improvement last week in their clash against Adelaide. Both sides boast a number of talented youngsters and the Blues will need more from seasoned names in Darcy Vescio and Taylah Harris. But with their home fans behind them, the Giants can break through here. 

Saturday 16 February, 7.15pm at Fremantle Oval

Fremantle are one of thee undefeated sides this season, while Collingwood are one of three at the other end of the spectrum and are yet to salute. The Dockers have a host of big names in form including Kara Donnellan and Dana Hooker and they have been the highest scoring side in the competition to date. The Magpies come off a 17 point loss after registering just 1.3 for the game and it is hard to see how they can turn things around in this one.  

Sunday 17 February, 2.35pm at Norwood Oval

This is a pivotal game for the two sides that are evenly poised after winning one of their two games thus far. The Cats made an impression by winning by a point in Round 1, while the Crows threw away victory on the same weekend by losing by the same margin to the Bulldogs but managed to turn it around last week. I suspect that the form points to Adelaide and the champions from season one should be major players again. Look for big games from Erin Phillips and Stevie Lee Johnson. 

Sunday 17 February, 4.35pm at Hickey Park

The final game of Round 2 pits a couple of the major players from last season up against one another. Both have enjoyed one win but in a peculiarity of the conference system, Brisbane sit in top position of Conference B, while Melbourne are last in Conference A. This should be a had fought encounter and it is the Demons that can salute in a close one.
