AFLW snub

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.

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.
