Transsexual American football star Hannah Mouncey is still considering taking legal action against the AFL after she launched her highly anticipated policy on transgender players.
The policy, which was launched on Friday after extensive consultation with transgender organizations, sets thresholds for maximum testosterone levels.
In addition to demonstrating that they have been under the 5 nanomoles / liter limit of the AFL, transgender players must also be tested in a variety of categories including weight, height and bench press.

Mouncey has said he will take legal advice in the run-up to the nominations for the next AFLW Draft, after the announcement of the new policy on Friday.
The AFL banned Mouncey, 28, from participating in the 2018 season of the AFLW last year, before releasing her to play in the state women's leagues in February.
But Mouncey still could not play in the 2018 league, he had already been excluded in October.
Mouncey said he was confident he would fit the league's requirements, but added that he would take legal advice in the run-up to the AFLW draw.
"I will receive advice from my attorneys on what is the best way forward," he told The Herald Sun.
The league's new policy requires trans players like Mouncey (right) to undergo strength and fitness tests and keep testosterone levels below a certain amount for two years.
Mouncey indicated on Twitter on Friday that he will complete the process to be able to enter the AFLW Draft in October.
"I have not wanted to take legal action, but the fact that I have not really spoken with the AFL since January of February means that I did not think I had another meaningful option."
In a tweet published on Friday, Mouncey seemed to indicate that she was determined to appear in the draft, which will be held in October.
Mouncey had a particular problem with the weight parameters of the AFL, arguing that agility in the air was as important as how heavy someone was.
Nomination projects can be submitted between 3 and 14 for the AFLW draft, the season for which it will take place at the end of October.
Mouncey appeared in the Victorian Women's Soccer League this year, finishing second in the overall standings.
She went from being a man in 2015, since she was previously known as Callum and represented the Australian men's handball team.
