These Irish girls must love aflw.

Use their existing Gaelic skills except just with an oval ball, get paid to play the game unlike gaelic football and get a summer long most-expenses-paid holiday in australia to top it off.

She landed the night of Friday, 16 August, stayed the weekend and flew home on Tuesday. The definition of a flying visit.
“It was hectic,” she nods, “it was good to get a feel of what training will be like and see everything. I fitted a lot in for the three days, I was home before I even realised.”

She met some of the club’s staff and top players including Darcy Vescio and Katie Loynes, trained with the VFL team and received a really warm welcome all round.
“They got onto me straight away which was really nice,” she smiles. ” It was just absolutely lovely when I was training with them. Hopefully the others will be the same and as welcoming.”
A good read this, pretty long and detailed. Seems like a good player to grab.
