Irish duo line up for Hawks in VFL Grand Final

Europe
PETER JACKSON VFL - 3.20PM: CASEY DEMONS vs BOX HILL HAWKS Sunday September 23 (Melbourne Time)
 
BROADCAST: TV – Channel 7. Radio – SEN, 3WBC, Casey Radio, ABC and Macquarie Sports Radio
 
When Conor Nash and Conor Glass run out on Etihad Stadium on Sunday they will be the first Irish players to play in the VFL’s Grand Final since Zac Tuohy played for the Northern Bullants in 2010. 
 
Tuohy’s team went down heavily to North Ballarat that day. So if Box Hill defeat the Casey Demons the Conors would become the first Irish players to win the Victorian state league title. 
 
Although both have played a few games for their AFL club Hawthorn, on Sunday they will be playing with Hawthorn’s VFL affiliate Box Hill – where they have both played most of their Australian football so far.

USA..!! USA..!! USA..!!



In one of the most remarkable VFL/AFL finals ever witnessed, the crowd at the MCG has erupted into the chant of the title as American footballer Mason Cox cut loose. As this article is being written, Cox dominates the Fantasy points on the http://www.afl.com.au website as the most impacting player on the field.

This isn’t a practice match but an AFL Preliminary final involving two of the great AFL clubs – Collingwood and Richmond – and it can truly be argued that Collingwood’s seven goal lead at half time is built heavily on the back on an American.

So far, Cox has claimed eight possessions (seven kicks), six marks (most contested) and crucially, three huge goals in a row that were the integral part of a Magpie goal-kicking avalanche. Rarely has a player dominated a half as Cox has done – NEVER an American.

Wombats Looking To Beat The Heat



The Finland AFL (FAFL) 2018 season will come to a close this weekend when the Helsinki Heatseekers meet the Waasa Wombats in the Grand Final. After the final round of the FAFL season in Waasa late last month, the Heatseekers finished in first place, two games clear of the Wombats in second. The results qualified both for the Grand Final.

The match will be played at the Talin Jalkapallohalli Sporting Fields in Purotie, Helsinki, this Saturday 22nd September.

The home and away season ended in Waasa with the Helsinki Heatseekers winning both of their matches against both the Wombats and Turku Dockers to finish in top spot with five wins for the season. The Wombats secured another win against the Dockers to have three wins for the season and the Dockers were third overall with just the one win.

Bahrain To Host AFLX Middle East Pre-Season Cup

Middle East
As part of their slow burn towards a return to full competition in the AFL Middle East, the Bahrain Suns will host the region’s AFX tournament next month. With their rebranding and rebuilding program last year, the Suns had planned to be back in action for the 2018/19 season. That goal will wait a little longer, but their involvement in the AFL Middle East pre-season competition will certainly boost interest and support.

In a media release from the AFL Middle East, “on October 12th, AFLME will conduct an AFLX style tournament which will comprise of all teams from of the competition. The tournament has been scheduled to take part in Bahrain to engage other areas of the Middle East to get involved in the league and potentially use this for expansion into the future.”

Copenhagen Giants To Meet Farum Cats in DAFL Decider



This weekend will see the 2018 DAFL Grand Final decided with the Copenhagen Giants up against the Farum Cats. Both teams will be driven to take the title. Last year, the Cats went down to the Barracudas in the Grand Final and will be keen to atone this year. The Giants last won the title in 2015 (their maiden title) and will be desperate for another.

The Farum Cats met last year’s fellow grand finalists, the Copenhagen Barracudas, in their semi-final. The two teams have contested the past two DAFL deciders, but it wasn’t to be this year. Instead, the Cats got away to a strong start, leading by 16 points at the first break and keeping the Barracudas scoreless. From there, the Cats just kept pulling away, leading by 35 points at half time and 55 points at the final change.
