World Ranking following 2015 49th Parallel Cup

General News

The 2015 edition of the 49th Parallel Cup between Canada and the United States was played on the weekend of 31/7/15 and 1/8/15 with both men's and women's matches played out. There was mixed success for the US with the Revolution triumphant over Canada's Northwind in the men's match and the Northern Lights defeating the Freedom in the Women's match, continuing the trend between these four sides.

These were the first full field internationals since the International Cup last year, with this post-IC year continuing the tradition of not seeing much international vs international footy action. The only change in our men's World Rankings was the United States swapped places with Canada moving from 8th to 7th. For the women there was no change.

Umpires To Receive Multicultural “Backing”

General News
In a move which will combine recognition of umpires and the multicultural legacy of our great game, the word “umpire” will be printed on the back of umpire’s shirts during the upcoming multicultural round. At each AFL match during Round 19, the AFL Multicultural Round from August 7-9, officiating umpires will have the word “umpire” emblazoned on the shirts in seven different languages.

The same touch will be added to the footballs used throughout the round, with the word “Sherrin” translated into the same languages as well as the 50 metre lines on each ground. To complete the picture of wider recognition of the event matches will be broadcast in corresponding languages for each venue as well as podcasts through afl.com.au and associated apps.

Format change as World Team and Flying Boomerangs kick off

General News

The World Team format that saw a mix of overseas and multicultural players form a team to play in the National Under 16 Championships has seen a watering down of the overseas based players component of the team as the concept has worn on.  Now there are no overseas based players involved with the team now made up exclusively of players with multicultural Australian based players that were born in non-English speaking countries (although the squad below seems to have some exceptions to this) .

The South Pacific Team now does not compete at this national tournament - they now compete in the Qld U16 State championships (that were held in May) and can make it to the National Championships and represent Qld. 

The AFL has also indicated that in future, if there is an outstanding overseas based junior talent identified by international affiliates they will "be open to accommodating these players either through the World Team or through another state talent program."

 

Matches for the World Team and Flying Boomerangs begin today at 4pm.
