Apparently the AFLW Grand Finals for the near (to far) future are all going to be played at Marvel.

That's a shame, although not surprising with the GF intersecting with the cricket season.Apparently the AFLW Grand Finals for the near (to far) future are all going to be played at Marvel.
And I also wonder if the shortened off-season is having a major impact on players this year. Cause it feels more common right now than previous years.
Do they strap the girls knees? Do they have a similar recovery/physio approach to the guys?I don't know. There seems to be a glut of ACLs in the AFLW preseason each year. I think the Crows had two a couple of years back. There are also an extra 120 players in the system now compared to previous years.
I honestly feel that's the main issue.I believe so, but of course the girls are part time so they're not there as often and they are likely not at the same physical standards as the men currently are.
Ponter also played midfield and by all reports was excellent. Martin also she played mid and up forward and snapped a goal from 35m so good signs ahead.So just heard we had a trial game against the power today, we rested top players like Eb and Hatchy, they pretty much went full strength and I was told "we smoked 'em" Lol. Don't know too many details but Waterhouse kicked 3, could be the steal of the draft period
Freo have holes a plenty in their team this year, missing some players that have been pretty important over in the last few yearsRichmond knocks off Fremantle 71-8 in their practice match - what the hell? Wouldn't have thought Richmond was in Freo's league, let alone a result like that. Did Freo rest half their side?
