Preamble

It feels a long time since Melbourne Victory were a force in the W-League; in reality it’s only four years since their last finals appearance, and five since their previous Championship – but such has been the dominance of their cross-town rivals Melbourne City since their entry to the competition they’ve been very much relegated to the role of poor cousin. Until now.

Natasha Dowie has lead from the front, aided by the vastly experienced Laura Alleway at the back, and former Sydney FC duo Casey Dumont and Teigen Allen, and of course the ever-willing Christine Nairn.

Standing in their way for the double is of course an intimidating Perth Glory led by the one and only Sam Kerr. They may have only just squeaked into the finals but you get the sense that the league’s inauguaral marquee, voted as a top three player in the world recently, might just find an extra gear today.

Kick-off isn’t too far away – we’ll also have an A-League top of the table clash between these two sides, but in male version, a bit later as Tony Popovic and Kevin Muscat’s men go head to head; and stick around for the second of the W-League finals later on as Brisbane Roar play host to Sydney FC.

As always we’ll be round the grounds, so look out for AFLW, Big Bash, NBL action and more – all here, on Sunday Sportwatch!
