Anybody else getting annoyed with the commentator referring to Noarlunga in the province of West Adelaide??

Oval’s so big you sometimes think it might encroach into the south east but west 😄

Seriously though they shouldn’t play AFLW games here unless they redevelop the ground and make the playing surface smaller

and yet we are playing four of the first six games there apparently!

The only non cricket SANFL ground not used remains is Elizabeth. Wouldn't mind a country SA game location.

I'd say most likely the commentator just didn't know what he was talking about. Just saw we had four of our first six games at home and figured they'd all be at the same ground.

Free kicks were 19-8 in the end, Brisbane would feel a bit hard done by there. I remember a couple of poor decisions/non-decisions but nothing too much.

It’d be interesting to know what the frees looked like at 3Q time. I thought Brisbane got a bit fatigued/undisciplined in the last quarter (understandably given they were 2 players short) and their tackling got sloppy

A good win without dominant performances from Erin or Chelsea. Gould was a real presence, and Biddell was impressive. Good to see Jones start the season in some reasonable form too

HTB decisions were a bit over the shop
Especially when pressure was on
In all I wasn’t frustrated
Think a good job overall

As has been suggested
I’ll take my NT hat off but Ponter needs a big coaches input if she doesn’t focus on the basics replace her
She doesn’t have the blood talent her rellys had as has no awareness they all did

Thought the Crows tackled with intent. They were very aggressive tackling and deserved the frees.

Gawd the barracking for Brisbane in the commentary box is a bit much!
Jason Bennett in the box like last year?

I'd rather a Dwayne Russell commentated showdown than a Jason Bennett commentated Brisbane game.

They are not stopping the clock. What's going on?
Isn't the rule in AFLw that the only time-on is between goal and the ensuring resumption of play
Then normal timeon rules in the final 2 minutes?

Was originally after goals only I think, but going into the 2017GF they changed that rule I think?
