2011 World Teams announced

International Cup 2011

As is becoming a tradition, the World Team was announced at the 2011 AFL International Cup Gala Dinner on Friday night.  This time there were squads to announce - both men's and women's.

For the men PNG had 4 players selected, four teams had 3 representatives (Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA), while Fiji, Tonga, Canada, Nauru, Denmark, Japan, Great Britain and Sweden all had one player picked in the 24 man (18 + 6 interchange) line up.  An odd omission (perhaps based on limited number of games) was Fiji's star Dylan Wolfgramm.  Michael Finn (Ireland) was named captain.

For the inaugural women's World Team Ireland lead the way with 8, the USA came nexy with 6, Canada had 5, PNG 3 and Australia Indigenous Multicultural 2.  Judith Stein (USA) leads the side.

Below are both teams.

Very surprised that Stephanie Briggs of the AMI team and Eileen Geoghegan of the USA Freedom team didn't make it onto the Women's World Team

I know there's all the practical impediments, but, it'd be great to see these teams play someone.  Again though - I know it's not practical.  However, the world team is getting better and better each time.

Michael, I agree, this team should take on the All Australian Amateur side. With proper planning by the AFL, it could be arranged. Some small time changes could be made,it can happen. Can you Imagine the stir if the World side won and the interest and credibility that would come from such a game. There wouldnt be to many Amateur players that wouldnt jump at the chance and the International Players would be honored to play against Australia. Lets not think of all the reasons we cant and start thinking of all of the reasons, WE CAN!
