What kind of #AFLW Grand Final in 2018?

The 2018 AFLW season concludes this weekend with the Grand Final between the Western Bulldogs and the Brisbane Lions.

I have used both teams’ seven games to identify a median profile of their performances and their opponents in the regular season.

Brisbane

Western Bulldogs and Brisbane

Scoring Scenarios

Western Bulldogs win, game score approximates to 41 v 37 median profile (Western Bulldogs dominate first half, Brisbane lift second half).

Brisbane win, game score approximates to 30 v 16 median profile (strong second quarter defence sets up second half game control for Brisbane).

The score in round 2 when the teams met was 33 v 24 to the Western Bulldogs. (Half time score was 26 v 3.)
