Yeti, unfortunately the timing of our posts coincided. No problems, my response was directed at the previous comment, not yours. Apologies for any confusion!

The MRP is more involved in AFLW this year as the hits get harder so the conversations will start.
AFLW is still mercifully free of media circus (unless started on this thread) and staging, so the MRP seem free to adjudicate quite fairly. These two incidents seem to be reasonably dealt with on their merits, that presented a concussion risk; but what do I know?

I disagree - both the Bowers and Prespakis incidents were assessed by the MRP only after the commentators said "I think the MRP will want to look at that". The so-called media woke them up.

Quite right Polly. The immediate impressions given by the commentators can have a big influence on whether a player is charged or not.
