So it's finally happened. AFLW have started poaching hockeyroos. Whilst AFLW is currently a summer sport and the payment structure is low, it's one more thing to take talented female athletes away from our game.
Hopefully Georgie Parker decides to sign up for a HV Prem club as well to play with in the winter, but what is the long term impact to hockey and in particular clubs meeting LEC female participation requirements???
