Carlton have toppled reigning AFLW premiers Adelaide, reversing last year’s grand final result in a gutsy eight-point win.
The Crows crunched the Blues by 45 points in last year’s premiership decider in front of 53,034 fans at Adelaide Oval.
This time Adelaide’s fans, out in force with 7281 at Richmond Oval on Sunday to witness the return from injury of superstar Erin Phillips, were stunned by the brilliance of Carlton on-baller Madison Prespakis and key forward Tayla Harris.
