      100% it does. The men need 'X' amount of games to be able to be recognised in the GF parade of retiring players. They have earnt the right. Some of the females that got named literally have played a handful of games

          I don't know if I'd say 'equality gone too far' but I must admit I was shocked and sort of pissed off that Ruan Sims was next to Aubo. Not a huge problem but just think Aubo deserves to be recognised by himself on a big stage like that

              It's good for the sport to keep women (players and fans) interested.

              Maybe it would have bene a better idea for them to have their own retiring player parade before the women's grand final.

                The game hasn’t done a good job of celebrating women in the game for a long time, whilst I agree it’s probably an over-correction it’s not hurting anyone and these things will naturally balance themselves out as women in the game get their true equal opportunity to be a part of the best game in the world.

                  I like this suggestion.

                  To me, this strikes the right and appropriate balance.

                  Some people believe supporting the Roosters
                  is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed
                  with that attitude. I can assure you it is
                  much, much more important than that.

                    Any retiring player is celebrated on the day regardless of the number of games played, and for Ruan being a roosters NRLW player I had no problem with her being farewelled with Aubusson, I feel certain he wouldn’t have minded her presence .

                      I look at the retiring NRLW players as pioneers.
                      There is a ladies comp now, and female players retiring from it.
                      "Women in League" literally.

                      Women have gone from riding side-saddle to warming up before NRLW games with their hands on the ground wide apart, their feet on the ground wide apart, and their derrierres pointing to the sky.
                      NRLW comp needs feminising.

                      Walking out with Maubs, retiring players together?
                      All good, no big deal to me.

                        I've heard Women's Rugba League defined perfectly as Freudian penis envy writ large.

                          I thought yesterdays game by the girls was enjoyable. I'm not expecting them to play like the men but they did represent their clubs and the game admirably. As for anyone having issues about the assistance their getting, well there are women that want to play the game and more women interested, whether they play or not, is opportunity gone begging if the NRL didn't do anything about it. These women will eventually have sons, and daughters and the mothers of tomorrow will encourage their children to play the game. If the NRL didn't do this, then AFL is right there waiting to pounce and the worst thing for us league fans would be if the game is overrun by the AFL in both NSW & QLD...and then people are going to whinge that the NRL isn't doing enough at the grass roots to ensure the longevity of the game.

                          The only thing I would be opposed to is if the game decided that women should be getting paid as much as men like Football Australia did, and whilst the Matilda's are very popular, they are still not as popular as the Socceroos and now they'er stuck paying a lot of money to players that cannot generate the same revenue as when the men play an international. Like Rhonda Roussey said to a female Australian journo who was trying to get her opinion about the negotiations of the Australian female soccer players with the Football Association about equal pay, Rhonda said that Dana White pays her a lot of money because people want to see her fight, not because she is being given a free ride. Equality should only be when the input has the same output.

                            Agreed.

                            Drink some hand sanitizer and inject some disinfectant. Problem solved!

                              let's hope they won't do a female's version of Immortals
