The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos will have the opportunity to win a maiden AFLW premiership on Sunday when they face the Brisbane Lions at Ikon Park.

The Roos knocked off the minor premiers Adelaide by a solitary point in last week's preliminary final to reach their first ever Grand Final, while the Lions held off the Cats to triumph by four points in another thriller.

In front of a sold-out Ikon Park, the final instalment of the 2023 AFLW season is going to be huge.

The opposition

A preliminary final victory over Geelong in Queensland last weekend saw the Lions book their fifth Grand Final appearance in eight seasons.

Shannon Campbell's late go-ahead goal proved the sealer as Brisbane took back the lead in the fourth quarter from a persistent Cats outfit.

A concern for Brisbane is the health of All-Australian forward Dakota Davidson. The centrepiece of Brisbane's forward line will need to prove her fitness in the coming days after suffering a knee injury last weekend.

The in-form Roo

Jenna Bruton

Just when the Crows started to assert some authority on Sunday's preliminary final, in stepped Jenna Bruton.

The experienced hard-nosed onballer finished with a game-high 28 disposals and seven tackles, but it was her third quarter that stood out.

Refusing to lose any contest, Bruton racked up 13 touches and four inside 50s, and set up Tahlia Randall's second major of the day.

Last time we met

North Melbourne's first opportunity of the 2023 season to land a blow on one of the League's 'top three' teams (Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne), went begging in Round 4, when the Lions ended the Roos' undefeated start to the year in nailbiting fashion.

Playing in Tasmania, where the Roos were undefeated, Darren Crocker's group was well in control throughout the first half and took a three-goal buffer into the main break, but the Lions responded strongly in the third term.

Consecutive goals to Bre Koenen and Taylor Smith put the visitors in the mix, and a Campbell major with five minutes remaining in the fourth proved to be the dagger as North Melbourne struggled to generate scores.

Jas Garner and Ash Riddell combined for 61 disposals, with Garner also adding a goal, while Emma King booted two goals from her 13 touches.
