Australia should be playing at the next IC with an amateur team. As a footy player and a fan of the game i would love to play for my country, it would create a lot of attention on international footy in oz, involving clubs from all over Australia to get involved and put there best players foward to try out for the team. You could have a tryout in every state and raise money at these tryouts to help other countries make the trip and grow the game through marketing the IC internationally. I also believe an indigenous amateur team should also play. It would give a lot of indigenous kids in remote places somthing to aim for and give them the honour of playing for their people. By involving Australian teams it will make a lot of news and create a lot of sponsorship for international footy,

I understand that the teams would be very tough to beat but it puts a challenge to the stronger nations. I would even make two divisions; div A and div B based on the team rankings.
