You actually reckon they can do it? Or was this a case of putting a sneaky tenner on a roughie?
Promo on Betr, can back any AFL team at odds of $101 to win the flag next year. I reckon they're a good chance mate, young team, will be better for this year's experience.

Ben Ronke just got released by the Swans. Very talented, there’s a bargain buy there for a team looking for a dynamic forward.

How frustrating would it be to be a AFLW coach? What can you say accept 'score more goals'

Yeah it's not very entertaining I have to say, don't know how they improve it.

The NRLW is heaps better to watch.

I haven't watched a game yet, although we do get the odd telecast of it over here. Do they play on a smaller field overall?

I see. I guess higher scores will come in time possibly? GF scores in the late 1800s and early 1900s when the game was starting up are all pretty low.

You'd hope so. I like women's tennis, NRL, cricket, soccer, golf....but I can't stomach aflw.

Yeah it's a weird one, there's absolutely no reason why it shouldn't be on par with the men's game. Maybe it has to do with just an overload of poaching female athletes instead of actual Aussie Rules players, I dunno.

But the first team to crack the riddle of scoring points = winning, they'll win a decade of premierships
