First internationally staged AFL Premiership Game bound for NZ?

Rory, I don't believe St Kilda (or any club for that matter) looking to play games in New Zealand will affect whether or not Tasmania get an AFL team. I was very disappointed when I learnt that GWS had been granted the AFL's 18th licence ahead of Tassie and I wanted, and still want, Tassie to get the AFL team they deserve. I believe that the AFL cannot be too far away from granting an AFL licence to Tasmania, regardless of whether AFL clubs play games overseas or not. Australian cities and states will not be forsaken as the AFL looks to exapand internationally and I think both Australian cities and states and the game internationally can benefit.
