We head into Round 5 of the AFLW and it is Brisbane and Geelong that kick off proceedings on Saturday March 2. 

Here is our preview of the five games that are in store for the weekend. 

Saturday 2 March, 4.45pm at Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex

Brisbane will jump as favourites in this match after serving up a 32 point defeat to the Western Bulldogs last weekend. The Lions sit in top place of Conference B and have an even spread of players that are in form. The likes of Jordan Zanchetta, and Jess Wuetshner have combined well and taken some of the heat off Sabrina Frederick-Traub in recent weeks. Geelong are equal on wins after holding off Carlton by five points in Round 4 but will need buiggames from a host of players such as Phoebe McWilliams and Meg McDonald. 

Saturday 2 March, 7.15pm at Ikon Park

The two sides have registered just one win between them and it was Carlton that knocked over GWS by 29 points in Round 3 before dropping their Round 4 game to Geelong. On the same weekend, Collingwood went down to GWS by nine points and are now languishing in last position in Conference B, while the Blues are 3rd. The Magpies have struggled after losing a number of key players to rival clubs prior to the season. Carlton's record is a tad better than it looks and if the likes of Darcy Vescio and Taylah Harris can fire, then the Blues should have the answers. 

Sunday 3 March, 2.05pm at Blacktown International Sportspark

Last weekend's win over Collingwood was GWS' first for the season and they can head in with optimism against a Melbourne outfit that served it up to the competition's pacesetters, North Melbourne. The Demons went down by just four points but sit in 4th position in Conference and desperately need a win to stay in touch in what is the strongest half of the competition. Look for Aleisha Newman to have a strong influence, ensuring that they keep the likes of North Melbourne and Adelaide in their sights.  

Sunday 3 March, 4.05pm at Chirnside Park

North Melbourne remain the only unbeaten side in the competition after last weekend's victory over Melbourne and are the ones to beat this season. However, Adelaide appear to be leading the chasing pack and after going down in narrow fashion in Round 1 they have since rebounded. They were menacing in their 42 point win over Fremantle and a win here might see them leapfrog the Kangas into top spot. Erin Phillips comes off another best on ground display and if she fires then the Crows can cause an upset. At the other end, look for Emma King and Moana Hope to have an influence in what shapes as one of the matches of the season so far. 

Sunday 3 March, 6.05pm at Fremantle Oval

Both sides come off big losses last weekend and will be looking to grab a victory in order to stay in touch. Fremantle are 3rd in Conference A, while the Bulldogs are 5th with two wins from their four encounters this season. The Dockers will need to improve their work at the clearances in this affair and if Kara Donellan and Kiara Bowers can continue their good form they can notch up an important victory.
