Foundation member of AFL Timor-Leste running for Australian parliament

General News

Luke Gosling, one of the key foundation members of the footy scene in East Timor, is standing as the Labor Party candidate for the seat of Solomon in the 2013 Australian federal election.

Gosling spent a number of years in East Timor with the Australian Defence Force peacekeeping and development mission, after the nation achieved independence in 2002. During his time in the country he was one of a group of Australians who helped introduce the sport of Australian rules, and corresponded with WFN in articles such as Timor-Leste Crocs enter Asian Footy.

Members of the Asian footy scene may remember him through his involvement in the early years of the Timor-Leste Crocodiles national side.

He now resides in Darwin with his family. The electoral division of Solomon takes in the Darwin metropolitan area, as well as some surrounding districts. It was won at the last federal election in 2010 by the Country Liberal Party, who hold the seat with a margin of 1.75%.

WFN World Rankings Post 2013 European Championships

General News

Additional commentary, Brett Northey

After several informal releases, worldfootynews.com today publishes our first formal World Rankings since 18th May 2013.

There's been plenty of movement in the lower half courtesy of two new fully ranked nations, France (16th) and Croatia (11th).

France brought their game tally up to our minimum required eight matches with a big loss to Germany, while Croatia qualified during the recent 2013 European Championships in Dublin. Some may argue that a rank of 11th in the world flatters the Knights, possibly rightly, but their form in 9-a-side has been very impressive for some time. Hopefully we'll see them make their International Cup debut at IC14 and that should help settle them in to a spot they deserve, wherever that may be.

In many respects EC2013 was a series of dramatic twists and turns that left us right where we started. Ireland almost came crashing down three times, but didn't. Denmark almost got past Great Britain, but didn't. The Swedes pushed their near rivals but couldn't topple them. Croatia pushed Sweden but didn't get over the line, and Great Britain nearly claimed their first major international title, only to have Ireland snatch victory with the last kick of the tournament.
