We head into Round 6 of the AFLW and it is Geelong and Fremantle that kick off proceedings on Saturday March 9. 

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

Saturday 9 March, 2.35pm at GHMBA Stadium

This is a crunch game for the two sides in their bid to play finals. Geelong head Conference B with three wins to their credit and can all but book themselves a spot in the Preliminary Finals with a victory here. Fremantle are 3rd in Conference A and need a win to stay in touch with Adelaide and North Melbourne, who head that group. Geelong were 27 point victors over Brisbane last weekend, while Freo rolled the Bulldogs by 18. The Dockers are favoured in this. Dana Hooker is finding plenty of it in the midfield and with Kellie Gibson, Sabreena Duffy and Gemma Houghton combining well up forward, the visitors should have the answers. 

Saturday 9 March, 4.45pm at Marvel Stadium 

Collingwood are yet to win this season and went down to Carlton by five points in Round 5, while North Melbourne suffered their first loss of the season, copping a 35 point defeat at the hands of Adelaide. The Kangaroos can bounce back and if they do this they are just about assured of a finals spot. An interesting sidenote to this game is that a number of key Roos players transferred from the Magpies in the off-season. Emma King, Mo Hope, Jasmine Garner and Jess Duffin are that quartet and have scored more goals than the entire Collingwood list in AFLW season three. 

Saturday 9 March, 7.15pm at Marvel Stadium

After their loss to Fremantle last weekend, the Bulldogs find themselves in last position in Conference A but Melbourne remain in the hunt, courtesy of their 39 point win over GWS. The Demons will need other results to go their way and are in 4th position in Conference A but are just one win off top spot at the moment. Mick Stinear's outfit should have too much firepower with Karen Paxman, Aleisha Newman and Tegan Cunningham among those in good form. 

Sunday 10 March, 2.05pm at Unley Oval

Adelaide leapfrogged North into top spot of Conference A last weekend, while GWS are now behind the eight-ball, finishing Round 5 in 4th position in Conference B. The Crows boast two of the competition's leading goalscorers with Stevie-Lee Thompson and Erin Phillips combining for 17 goals this season. That pair are a couple of the reasons why the Crows can stitch up a finals spot with a win in this.  

Sunday 10 March, 4.05pm at Ikon Park

Both sides have won just two games for the season but are fighting out for a finals position, ranking 2nd and 3rd in the weaker of the two conferences (B). Carlton can thank their star forward, Darcy Vescio, for their win last weekend after she snapped a magical goal in the dying stages against the Pies. Tayla Harris is another player that can lead to Blues to a win but will need her kicking boots on after missing a number of opportunities last weekend. If the Blues are wasteful, Brisbane have the game to take advantage but will need to come with the right frame of mind as they lacked the pressure in the big loss to Geelong last weekend.
