Once again the sponsors of the AFLW do a better job promoting the women's competition than the AFL does.

Adelaide's made 5 changes to the premiership winning side, with Gibson gone to Freo, Anderson delisted because of her shoulder, McCormick fulfilling her Adelaide United contract for the final game of that season, Cramey out with a hamstring, and Holmes out with a knee.

5 debutants come in, Eloise Jones, Ruth Wallace, Jasmyn Hewett, Jess Allan, Rheanne Lugg, with Allan and Jones youngsters at 18, and the others being older. All of them are set to play forward except for Allan, who will rotate between the ruck and forward. Wallace kicked 5 goals in the final intraclub scratch match they played, so coming in with form.

Not sure why anyone would choose to broadcast Kane Cornes in any slot irrespective of where he broadcasts from... but I suspect Kane is actually broadcasting from Melbourne. That's where he records the show that gets broadcast here each day (or at least it was last year, haven't tuned in this year to see if it's changed).
Heís been doing a show with Malcolm Blight out of Adelaide and I read thatís where heís doing the Friday shows from

Ah, fair enough. Last year he was doing it with Ben Hart and I'm pretty sure it was being recorded in Melbourne.

Kane Cornes and Malcolm Blight, huh? I'm not sure if that will be better or worse to listen to...

The man was stunningly well dressed. He had a smart looking jacket, and a really neat looking cape, the lining of which was shimmering and sparkling in more than Oriental splendour, which is a great deal of splendour indeed, just ask Kipling.

Jas Hewett looked p. good, albeit couldn't kick for goal, in the preseason friendly.

I blame the last touch rule for low scores. Changed momentum too often, no real chance to score from throw ins inside 50 etc.

Also ot was loud for the players tonight, harder to communicate which will help for other games.

Hoping it's the result of Collingwood just being a bad team, and Carlton either being also bad, or not good enough to avoid being dragged down to that level, and that the other teams will be better.

They were talking about Tayla Harris non-stop on the coverage, but I think I only saw her once in the last quarter and a bit, and she was easily beaten. She gets too much of a good run from the media imo.

Yeah, this. Nice work AFL.

Maybe modify the rule so it only comes into effect in the centre zone of the ground and does not apply when the ball is within either 50m arc.

What would have been scoring opportunities in the pockets became defensive kick ins but from the edge of the oval instead of the goalsquare.

I for one am shocked to learn that the AFL are so staggeringly incompetent that introducing an unwanted rule in order to achieve one outcome has, in the real world, led to the complete opposite

I thought she was the best forward on the ground. Took a couple of decent contested marks, kicked the first goal of the game. 1.1 for the match which is more points than anyone. She was good

Should have been 2.0 except she has the set shot kicking skills of a St Kilda player.

Re AFLW scores: According to AFL Tables, the average score in the 2nd year of the VFL (1898) was 38.

So while it's not great to see such low scoring games, it's not really surprising for a league at this stage of development. The AFL just needs to keep pushing development of the players in order to try to fast track the transition from low scoring to high scoring. Going fully professional would probably be the biggest thing they could do imo.

Of course, instead of doing things like making them fully professional they'll just introduce more stupid rule changes that don't work.
