European Legion and Titans squads named for AIS/AFL academy tour

Don't want to hijack this thread, but to answer Cam - We are not sure how many teams will play this year as it depends on our recruiting campaigne which will start as soon as the snow melts down.  I think Hawks will be restored, but not the Power, VG Bombers are steady with numbers and will be competing, and last years new fount team Zaprudje Giants (GWS sponsored) will compete for the first time in HLAN (Croatian League of Australian Football). There's also Styrian DownUnderDogs from Austria that will compete. So it will be either those 4 clubs in the league or a long shoot one more (Power) if recruiting gets better then expected.

Kolja, thanks for the info about your league.

Best of luck with the recuiting campaigns, and congrats to the Knights that have made the Legion and Titans teams.

Do we know how selection works?  Do players have to nominate or be nominated by their country?  Is there a selection panel?

According to Ben MacCormack, players were nominated in the last squad, but some clubs over exaggerated the talent of their junior players resulting in kids who barely knew the game making the squad ahead of more experienced but less well represented players. Also, many players couldn't make it to the trials- it's not like they're held in every country in Europe. That's why they had the video system this time. Hopefully we'll have our best squad when the Aussie kids come around! We'll at least do better than the Kiwis!!
