Mayo legend Cora Staunton shot two goals on her Aussie Rules debut with Greater Western Sydney this morning.

Staunton helped her new club to a 50-point win over Brisbane Lions on a practice match.

Speaking afterwards, the Carnacon ace said: "It was very tough. It's a lot different to what I expected.

"It's more physical and I probably wouldn't be as used to that at home."
