The AFL this week named the nine players to come from outside Australia to be part of the World 18 team. As in previous years the rest of the team will be made up of multicultural players living and playing footy in Australia.
In addition to the two American players featured previously on WFN, South Africa is represented by four players and one each from Indonesia, Denmark and Hong Kong.
Indonesian player Richard Wood learnt the game with the seniors team at the Borneo Bears, even before the Bears Junior program started. Richard has developed into a gutsy centreman with a raking left boot and slick mark.
Currently playing during the week with Guilford Grammar in Perth and with a local Perth side on weekends, Richard has developed a passion for Australia’s great game and his ambition is to play football at the highest level in Australia.
Thomas Murphy plays for Hong Kong Blues in the South China AFL and has also represented the Hong Kong Dragons in International matches.
Mikkel Kjøge from Denmark is a product of the Farum Cats juniors and has played for Denmark against Geelong College in 2010.
