Schwass says the AFL should get into New Zealand
Authored by: Van_Dieman on Monday, January 23 2012 @ 05:32 pm ACDT

I'm surprised to hear that footy is moving forward in NZ. Club & league develoment seems to have been on a plateau for the last few years with no growth in club numbers in the being at a standstill in all leagues-infact reading AFLNZ's web site one could be forgiven in thinking that the Wellington League was withering given the number of forfeited matches this last season.

 

What's happening over there -- that's not being (or is little) reported -- that gives cause for optiimism?

Although I agree that at senior level there doesn't appear to have been much growth and some ongoing problems, if you read back through some of Rod's recent articles you'll find a host of promising work with juniors, particularly around the HANZ UP program.
