I found it laughable that the AFL experts were complaining about the 1st leg being boring & lacking entertainment.
It’s a f*cking World Cup qualifier and is about getting through on an aggregate score. It’s not about entertainment or playing exciting football. The pure focus is about getting to the next stage.
Many AFL followers don’t understand the 2 leg system. Just look at the way Australia celebrated its win in the International rules. They were celebrating that they won. While Ireland weren’t worried about losing, as they know that it’s only half time in the series.
