Yeah, very easy to notice the girls who have played footy for the majority of their life. Still way too many players out there who you can tell just by things like how they hold the footy that they haven't played that much footy and definitely not enough in their formative years to become 'natural'. Not much the league can do to rectify it but give it time though.Its easy to spot the 'true footballers' in this comp. Elise O'Dea is a true footy player. After seeing that banana kick to the top of the goal square from Tyla Hanks, you can add her to that list too.
I liked Pearce's ruck work, but around the ground she wasn't quote perfect. Fumbly and missing targets with kicks and handballs, 2nd term in particular she outright refused to take possession opting to knock it on instead a few times.I have O’dea, Paxman then Pearce - with HC to Hanks. Pearce gives us a lot.
Borrow someone else's kids for the day?Talking about the crowd the AFLW certainly is much more friendly and fun, certainly a good place to take kids, I don't have any but I would recommend.
But did you kiss hello?Good girls.
Fun fact - when I met Elise O’Dea, her favourite current AFL players are Jack Viney and Clayton Oliver. Smart woman.
