The Women's game is really catching up to the Men's game in quality.


Here's Taylor Harris going the flop, just like we see the blokes do.

Here's the big name player taking the important mark to get her team right back in the game with Carlton trailing 42-35.

Oh wait Carlton ended up on 36 points... she choked on the 20m set shot. Just like the men...

Yes, I saw her take that kick - must have been very deflating for all her team mates.

Cronulla Sutherland Sharks
Brisbane Lions 10.5 (65) def Gold Coast Suns 0.2 (2). On that score alone a Port Adelaide women's side would have to be better value than the Suns.

That is a ridiculous score line and an embarrassment to the Suns and the AFL. It is hard to take a competition seriously when a side cannot score a goal in an entire game. Then again sh*t happens, Leicester did defeat Southhampton 9-0 in the EPL a few weeks back.

In round 2 of the AFLW five sides managed a score of 7.17 (59pts) between them. Two sides Brisbane and North both kicked enough to top that collective score. That does not include Freo or West Coast who played in atrocious conditions.

2 points - must have been horrific conditions.

Leicester defeated Southampton 9-0 in 2019. Unfortunately, Southampton also lost 9-0 to United a few days ago...

It's ironic that she's become an icon for that photo of her kicking style (and her defiance of the trolls), but after taking a great mark last week about 20m out from goal she could only manage a floaty flat punt that scraped in for a point.

Shes extremely marketable. The statue was commissioned by NAB. Its a shame that the best player in the league by some margin isn't getting that attention instead.

AFLW is still AFL. The’ll put Magda Szubanski up as the face of the game before they’d put a non-Victorian up.

Erin Phillips.
Strong football family.
Instrumental in winning two premierships for her club in the fledgling league.
Best player award twice (IIRC) by a country mile.
International representative in Basketball.
Professional basketball career in the US.
Has a young child and in a same sex marriage.
Veteran of the league.
Physically fit, skilful, determined, with incredible leadership qualities.
attractive, intelligent, and media savvy.

I mean, seriously, that’s some impressive political gymnastics to NOT have Erin as the face of the league.

But nah... Taylah did a kick once that flashed her wan.
