Who wants a Wallaby wannabe

General News

The AFL helped facilitate the recruitment of Karmichael Hunt and Israel Folau from the NRL for obvious promotional reasons. There was an obvious time and place opportunity with new sides in both Queensland and Sydney that made this move viable. The question has remained about what circumstances might deliver another cross code recruit.

Does the AFL need to stump up big money, or are there players out there seeking the challenge? NSW Waratah’s and Wallabies player Lachie Turner has made some interesting comments around a desire to one day play in the AFL.

Recruiting; The Izzie and K effect in action

General News

The much hyped about AFL recruitment of NRL ‘converts’ Karmichael Hunt and Israel Folau has unabashedly been very heavily weighted to the promotional benefits for the code. No matter how good a player that Karmichael Hunt has already become – his on field value to the Gold Coast Suns Football Club is now measured differently to his initial promotional value both to the club and to the AFL. The increased awareness of Australian Football in new markets and new demographics has been much talked about – and perhaps recent Dandenong Stingrays debutant Agape Patolo may be amongst the first of many to give the game a go - who may otherwise not have - and perhaps make a career from it.
