AFLW Round 2 was full of lung-busting, eye-watering, heart-warming moments and we've collected the very best, right here.
While the AFLW hashtag has seen more than its fair share of vitriolic negativity, Round 2 provided a welcome upsurge in wholesome content. Here is the best of social media from the second week of the 2020 season.

‘Not sure why we’re talking about this when the fact that she’s played the best game of her career… and we’re talking about something so minor.’
@RankingSw’s indignation that Courtney Gum’s one-handed mark isn’t a talking point of Round 2 is spot on. Such a fantastic display of deft athleticism that should be widely applauded.
To finish, here are two Auskickers that perfectly embody the spirit of the AFLW.
