Gabba unusable for AFL Women's final
Greg Swann has slammed Gabba curator after the ground was left unusable for the AFL Women's final.
Brisbane's first home match of the year, against Essendon in Round 2, is also in doubt because of the state of the surface.
A seething AFL chief Gillon McLachlan said it was either a matter of "competence or prioritisation" that the surface wasn't ready.
You'd think they would have had plans in place. 6 days out from the GF is too late to be figuring this out. #aflw https://t.co/aH5mjjelEL— Women in Sport (@womeninsportau) March 19, 2017
The Gabba's head curator Kevin Mitchell says his ground is unavailable due to re-sowing following the recent Adele concerts.
Lions CEO Greg Swann told 3AW the situation was "farcical."
"He thinks this is a cricket ground and treats it (AFL) like a necessary evil," Swann said on Sportsday.
"It's disappointing that this is the focus now. The focus should be the girls, and that the inaugural AFLW Grand Final is in Queensland."— Brisbane Lions AFLW (@lionsaflw) March 20, 2017
