They have to take the 50 metre penalty out of AFLW, it’s a ridiculously harsh penalty in a game where most can barely kick 30 metres.
3 x 50s..3 goals.
We were outplayed.. Not only bigger bodies, but got killed in the air.... and kicking skills

Yes we were outplayed but that has nothing to do with the appropriateness of a 50 metre penalty. Should be a 30 metre penalty instead.

Agree.

It was hard to watch. How many times did a player with a mark or free kick handball to someone in a much worse position, only to see them fumble it? It was so hard to sit through.

Yet there were with a few minutes left... still in it.

The lights are becoming a bit of an issue, I wonder how we'll go against Melbourne in the afternoon with the lights not being in their eyes.

We need proper light towers at PP, screw whatever the local complain about, there are light towers at the other ovals of Princes Park taller than our stadium roof, deal with it.

As a premiership winning Youth Girls under 18 coach myself (undefeated), did I mention undefeated :wink: , we drilled picking up the ball off ground as our first and last drill ever week.

It seemed to be a premiership winning formula.

At the end of the season we had six girls from our club in the first Victorian under 18 Youth Girls side in 2007.

Did I mention we were undefeated?

:razz:

Well of course below the knees and going underfeeted go hand-in-hand.

Harris to get at least a week from the MRP for striking.

Loynes reprimanded.

What's happened to insufficient force? There looked to be intent but the strike barely made contact.
