IC2011 - current country attendance list
Authored by: Michael Christiansen on Tuesday, February 22 2011 @ 11:41 am ACDT

Given the Multicultural side, and given examples such as the domestic Aust multicultural input into the World 18 last year, is there any chance of a 'rest of the world' style team in the IC??  or, is that what the 'multicultural' side is??

Basically, is the Multicultural side soley drawn from new arrivals in Australia? 

or, could for example, a nation like Vanuatu or Solomon Islands, who only really have junior activity for now, could some of their first wave or two of junior 'graduates' aspire to joining in the 'Multicultural' squad in the IC??

Team Africa and Team Asia were drawn from migrants living in Australia, some recent migrants, some born here.  Both teams were organised through the AFL Multicultural programs. 

From what I could ascertain, Team Asia seemed to mainly be second generation Vietnamese/Cambodian/Chinese players a la the Southern Dragons.

Team Africa had a greater number of recent migrants, and I think a lower percentage of the squad overall had suburban club footy experience compared to Team Asia.

As far as standard went, South Africa beat Team Africa fairly handily in the warm up match Troy and I saw them play before the IC.
