British Home Countries Championship in Cardiff this weekend


The Annual Australian Rules Football British Tri-Nations Championship is coming to Cardiff this weekend, as Wales play host to the best British Aussie Rules players. The Welsh Australian Rules Football Leagues hosts the 9-a-side event which was first held last year in Worksop, England, and sees the Cymru Red Dragons, English Dragonslayers and Scottish Clansmen come together to play a series of 'Lightning' matches, of 15 minute halves.

The series is a warm up for all three teams as they prepare for the EuroCup, where the Red Dragons have finished 7th for the last two years.

The British Tri-Nations Championship will be held on September 8th at the Welsh Institute of Sport, behind the Swalec Stadium, with the first game kicking off at 12pm. The day will see 6 games in all as the three teams play each other twice in a round robin format, with the team top of the table at the end of the day, being declared winners.

The Welsh team will be hoping to draw on inspiration from the WARFL Red Devils league rep team who won the Brit Cup in July. The Red Dragons squad is a very mixed team with players involved from the WARFL as well as 3 playing in the AFL London League and 3 playing the AFL Southern England League:

Rob Baker (Swansea Magpies)
Bryan Bliss (Cardiff Panthers)
Ian Carter (Cardiff Panthers)
Tom Case (Chippenham Redbacks)
Joshua Davey (Cardiff Panthers / Wimbledon Hawks)
Tom Gillard (West London Wildcats)
Gareth Griffiths (Cardiff Double Blues)
Sam Jones (Chichester Cougars / Portsmouth Pirates)
Scott Jones (Cardiff Panthers)
Rhys Lewis (Cardiff Double Blues)
George Llewellyn (Chichester Cougars / Portsmouth Pirates)
Rhys Morgan (Cardiff Double Blues)
Andrew Norman (Cardiff Double Blues)
Owain Ryland (Cardiff Panthers)
Brian Sparkes (Cardiff Panthers)
Joe Street (Swansea Magpies)
Harry Trigg (West London Wildcats)

Coach: Kim Swain
