The AFL has ruled transgender footballer Hannah Mouncey is eligible to play in state leagues, but is still a no-go for AFLW.

In a statement posted online Hannah said she still felt the AFL “may prefer that I did not exist or had chosen to go and do something else”.

“I welcome the AFL’s decision and I look forward to hopefully playing this season,’’ she said.

“It would be highly inappropriate for me to thank the AFL for allowing me to do something open to every other Australian, which the science and research has supported all along.

“Had we simply gone by the research at the start we could have avoided the whole saga. I am however grateful that they took the time to look at this situation properly, as it’s complex, and took all the relevant advice on board which was provided.

“Yes, the AFL may prefer that I did not exist or had chosen to go and do something else but that is not how it is and we are not people to be ignored in the hope that will happen.”
