AFLW 2022: Follow the latest news in the lead-up to the first week of finals

A heavy bump has cost Magpie Sophie Casey her spot in an AFL Women’s final this weekend, with the Collingwood defender hit with a one-match ban.

And Crow Eloise Jones will be hoping Adelaide makes the grand final after she was wiped out of the team’s preliminary final for a dangerous tackle.

Casey — who was reported at the time of the incident — was on Monday night charged with forceful front-on contact against Tiger Tayla Stahl, which the match review officer classified as careless conduct with medium impact and high contact.

Her teammate Jordyn Allen was let off for her strike on Tiger Emilia Yassir, which escaped with a reprimand, and will be free to face the Lions.

Jones, 22, will be sidelined from the Crows’ preliminary final against either North Melbourne or Fremantle after her hit on Saints defender Tilly-Lucas Rodd, which was also deemed to be careless conduct, medium impact and high contact.

Both clubs can elect to challenge the ban at a tribunal hearing.

Collingwood will travel to Brisbane to play the Lions at the Gabba, with Magpies coach Steve Symonds declaring that “everyone’s going back to even now” as the finals begin.
