Domestic footy up and running in NZ

It's certainly a worry, especially even Auckland dropping reserves. If Aussie Rules can't prosper and ultimately have significant leagues in New Zealand as it does in Australia then the future looks a little grim.

If all the junior work done in schools in NZ turns this decline around in the next 3 or 4 years then great. If instead the focus becomes mostly on high performance athletes and there's no grassroots growth then I think the game will have blown its best chance in 100 years.

We'll be watching NZ very closely over the next few years and really hoping it goes the right way.
