Weekend musing – Dawn of the AFWL!

Sfan OB6I watched a bit of the womens football last weekend and I was impressed with the degree of physicality exhibited. The standard of skill varied and it reminded me of watching a boys underage match where a third of the team were pretty good, the next third were okay and the final third were making up the numbers.

This is to be expected when the teams have sourced players from a variety of different sports and it will take time to raise the overall skill level to an acceptable standard. Some of the players were absolute stand outs like Carlton’s Darcy Vescio and the Bulldogs Katie Brennan.

It will be interesting to see how they go for crowds once the patrons have to pay, but in the meantime the concept helps fill the void between football seasons and I for one will continue to watch it.

Have a great weekend!
