AFLW is Here - First Practice Game


Yesterday was the very first AFLW practice game between the Fremantle Dockers and the Adelaide Crows all the way up in Darwin.

The game was streamed live on Youtube yesterday and I got up and watched it this morning.

Here's what I thought was note worthy:

- The Freo girls laid some big tackles and not many of them get broken which will be a huge asset.

- Adelaide looked like they wanted to play a handball game which will require a lot of hard running with only 16 players on the field per team.

- Disposal mistakes will also be far more costly when playing the running game with the less players as you'll have less players back.

- Freo ran hard early but seemed to tire in the 2nd quarter.

- Then both teams seem to tire in the 2nd half of the 2nd quarter which was to be expected.

- It is worth noting that the Crows are a amalgamation of South Australian and Northern Territory girls who have mostly trained separately except for the whole 2 times they've been together as a team, with  of those times the day before the game.

- For some reason they played 20min quarters even though the proper season will roll with 15mins + time on which also affects player fatigue.

- There was a fair bit of cutting the ground in half for both teams at various times which again with less players, will be seen a lot of the AFLW season proper it seems as it's harder to run it out with no  all your players in the back 50 or close to.

- Adelaide must have taken a good 5 - 6 high, pack mark which was great to see.

- Across the board Freo had the better skill level and decision making but again the Crows haven't really played together before which definitely affects decision making and thus skill level off the back of that.
