Good call i can't even countOnly 4 actually.
But I seriously agree. There needs to be some rule tweaks to get more goals and less ball ups.
So many bloody ball ups.
Sorry, wasn’t intended at you.I watched it all and and enjoyed it.
I said "tweaks" . Doesn't need wholesale changes.
Just feel the umps could pay holding the more a bit quicker?
Certainly not the best game of AFLW I’ve watched, but was unbelievably intense from the outset.
Pleased (obviously) for the team, have been thereabouts for a long time, and a big part of the comp since inception. Coached exceptionally well throughout the years too, great to see Stinear get the win

Not against 1. However perhaps not as drastic a size shrink is required. Issue is how could you implement? Ground sizes are already not consisent, and well changing goal post positioning risks creating potential surface risk to grounds for larger sized mens field if post holes come into play. The game is already under reduced players and uses smaller ball. Could perhaps apply that field lines are created to a lower width to help create smaller field but then it risks becomes a corridor only game like Geelong stadium is often argued to create. However less playersI enjoyed it for what it is. Don’t compare mens with Womens its 3 decades away from being near it. The skills in general have improved massively though however not sure they needed to expand so quickly.
I’d look at some changes or tweaks
1) Reduce the ground size. These girls can’t kick it as long which means more and more congestion which in turns makes it scrappy. Take out 15 m on both ends and it will get more scoring
2) Reduce players on the field by 4. Take the game on, less players in the centre circle.
