    It would be a good opportunity if Kelly played ALFX to assess him. Then a game or two in the new NAP Cup - ??? Would be terrific if he played Rd1, agree with you.

    Geelong website said that he had a six to eight week recovery + rehab, from the date of his arthroscope, so Rd1 might be cutting it too fine. I think most would prefer to be cautious.

    I'm not sure if Melbourne is this year.
    Players went to the AFLPA to get their training camp called off cause it might be too hard.

    I think that Tayla Harris is a talent.

    Her footy is not bad either.

    It may very well be interesting and they may well drop off. But less than 15,000 for an AFL Semi Final is a lousy crowd attendance for a finals game played by a Sydney based team in the biggest city in the land.
    Free entry or not, 20,000 spectators is a good crowd for a women's competition and it is clear that AFLW has generated some considerable interest.
