One of the great strengths of Aussie Rules is the high scoring and that it's hard for a weaker team to curtail the stronger team, so most often the best team wins. So you get entertainment, high scoring, fair results.

One of the great weaknesses of Aussie Rules is pretty much the same thing. Because it means if there's a mismatch it's a complete blow out on the scoreboard and the losing team will struggle to even get much possession. It's also why it's hard, unfortunately, to see any international side take on Australia at the highest level, for decades.

And for the same reason glad to see divisions from the outset in the Men's IC comp. Could be some major blowouts, even with reduced playing time, in the Women's.

Got me wondering what the best and worst margins I ever experienced playing amateur footy. Can't remember! Nothing like 200 or 300 points though. Tends to happen in country leagues where there's only 1 division regardless of level. I reckon a few wins and losses by around 130 points would've been the max I saw. I do well remember hammering one side about 20 goals to 0 - a bad mistake, as they lost all interest in the ball and focused on winning the fight instead.
