Time for Women's International Rules to be resurrected
Authored by: Harley Vague on Monday, December 04 2017 @ 12:12 pm ACDT

I have always supported the IRS concept because it allows international competition and while it provides self-funded entertainment .it should continue. Importantly it has facilitated much inter-code contact at amateur level. However i'm totally confused by the lack of leverage out of these games. At the last test in Perth there was junior GAA demonstrated at half time, whilst I don't know of a red ball coming out at all in Ireland. Also we had the recent VFA team visiting Ireland yet didn't play AFL. That was left to until London. If IRS is going to continue let's at least attempt to leverage a junior match or an exhibition game out of it in the men.
Women everywhere are providing magnificent opportunities for growth. The AFLW has been a totally magnificent development but it could be even so much better. W.r.t IRS I would see a women's series as potentially a much better promotion and leverage opportunity than the men for a lot of reasons.IMO we should have a women's IRS but only if we attempt to leverage Australian Football growth. Whilst I'm in favour of IRS fpr women I believe some sort Australian Football competition featuring women from around the world be more beneficial in continuing the advancement in women's football. .
