Georgia Bevan; It's Hard To Impact On A Game In Just 15 Minute Quarters

As the Adelaide Crows prepare to take on the Lions in the first ever AFL Women's Grand Final, star Georgia Bevan says it's difficut to turn a game around when you only have 15 minute quarters.

After losing their 13 point half time lead in the game against Collingwood, it took all their skills and team support to wrestle game back into their favour and book a spot in the final game of the season.

Bevan says extending the quarters would be beneficial but understands the decision to shorten them in this first season due to the heat in what would normally be a winter sport.

 The girls are preparing themselves for a turn at the inaugural Premiership, looking to take down the undefeated Lions side who will play at either Metricon Stadium ahead of the first Queensland derby of the home and away season of the men's league, or at home at the Gabba. The AFL is making their decision on this today.

Georgia says it's not ideal to hold the final in Brisbane with Queensland not being a traditionally AFL state but respects the Brisbane team for earning their home final.
