Internationals in 2015 VFL Semi Finals

Australia
Last year’s VFL Premiers Footscray went down to Essendon at North Port Oval by 11 goals. After an even first quarter the Bombers piled on the goals. Conor McKenna (Ire) kicked one goal for Essendon in his VFL return after his two match stint in the AFL. McKenna finished with 13 disposals, 4 marks and two tackles for the match.
 
Essendon play Williamstown in the Preliminary Final this Sunday.
 
Sunday's clash between Collingwood and Sandringham was a much closer match. An arm wrestle throughout Sandringham eventually nosed in front to win by 7 points after scores were even at half time.  Jason Holmes (USA) had 21 hitouts for Sandringham and finished with 8 disposals, 2 marks and 2 tackles. Mason Cox (USA) had 19 hitouts, kicked one goal and had one disposal , one mark and one tackle. 
 
Cox will now enjoy a break before hitting the preseason with the goal of debuting in the AFL for Collingwood in the 2016 season. Holmes will likely play in the VFL Preliminary Final against the Box Hill Hawks this Saturday with the chance to be the first American to play in a VFL Grand Final if his team can defeat this year’s minor Premiers (and last year’s runner up).
