AFLW continues to be a ratings hit

THE AFL Women's competition has continued to captivate audiences, with Channel 7 recording another strong Saturday night of ratings.

The match between Collingwood and Melbourne scored a combined peak audience of 677,000 viewers across the five capital cities it was broadcast live.

The match, won by 19 points by the Demons, reached 1.1 million viewers who watched at least five minutes across Channel 7, 7mate and Foxtel.

The combined numbers were similar to last Saturday night's round one fixture between the Western Bulldogs and Fremantle.

In that match there was a peak audience of 498,000 viewers across just four cities.
