Absolutely. It was drawn from Vic, SA, WA and Tassie.

But it would be too good for IC11 - okay if they win, but not if they smash even the top teams. Which is why I'd like to see an All-Australian Amateur U19 side, so basically 18 year old players from the amateur leagues, play a match against PNG. If that is competitive then look at including such a side in IC11. It will be reduced by who is and isn't available, but I think it would be a worthwhile first step. Who knows, maybe IC14 then has an Amateur U20s. But by then we run into a separate issue - the best internationals will be in the AFL and unavailable, so artificially limiting the quality of international sides.
