Yeah the footage of her rucking looked pretty good, and seems to have no problems kicking the oval ball. Seems pretty fast and decent agility for someone so gangly - that little toe poke, pick up and snap was epic (not sure she'll have that much time in AFLW but still good signs). WC taking our ruck stocks could be a blessing. They just looked undersized last season - we were lucky Bowers was such a tackling machine.Aine (pronounces Anya) is a fantastic get. I love her already and predict good things.
I think Houghton, Roux and Flood in the forward line could be incredible. Just three very imposing figures that are all fast and agile. I was worried Flood might struggle kicking goals with the different shaped ball but 6 goals in the final (15 total) and best player of tournament tells me she's going to be ok. She knows how to lead from Gaelic and her hands are really good. The knock on is we get to add the best AFLW CHB back into our back line - I thought we looked a bit vulnerable when she wasn't there last season.
