I reckon the skill level will start to ramp up significantly in maybe 3-4 years. The explosion in the girls junior pathways, girls TAC Cup teams etc has been staggering since AFLW became a thing. There’s a lot more girls trying out the game now, and they’re getting much, much better development. Once you start getting talented players from those development pathways into the comp is when you’ll start to notice a big improvement in skills.
Edit: but you won’t see skills comparable to the men’s afl until we start getting girls coming into the AFLW who’ve been on elite talent identification tracks since they were 10, and now earn a wage that allows them to practice footy as a full-time job. Cos that’s what it takes to get to afl standard skills.
