Internationals in the VFL - Round 4

General News
Four rounds of VFL are in the bag. Last year’s runners up Box Hill sit on top and Coburg are in the wooden spoon position. We take a look at how the International players faired in Round 4.
 
Kurt Heatherley (NZ) has had a steady start to the VFL season, playing centre half back for Box Hill. The Box Hill Hawks are undefeated. Heatherley kicked a great goal against Williamstown two weeks ago just before half time and then missed the second half after a head knock.
 
This week he had 11 disposals - 4 marks - 3 tackles - 3 rebound 50s against Frankston in the Hawks 59-point win. His Kiwi team mate Shem Tatupu has reportedly joined the Melbourne Storm rugby league team after leaving Hawthorn. Heatherley will shortly be joined at the club by another international when Conor Glass returns to Australia from Ireland after completing his exams.

A Recruiters International Perspective

General News

In the wake of last weekend’s exciting debut by Collingwood’s American recruit Mason Cox, and the debut this weekend of Sudanese Swan Aliir Aliir, Sam Landsberger from the Herald Sun newspaper looks at the perspective of AFL recruiters in comparing international options.

 

No Surprise Irish Imports Adapt To AFL Easier Than Other Foreign Talents, Says Recruiting Guru

 

GARY Buckenara says it is not the luck of the Irish that Gaelic converts adapt to AFL far easier than talents poached from other codes around the globe.

 

 

The long-time Hawthorn recruiter says clubs tap into the foreign markets to unearth players hard to find in Australia — and that Ireland remains the No. 1 breeding ground because of the similarity between Gaelic and Australian football.

Western Australian Double Diversity Glory

General News
The National Diversity Championships in Townsville wrapped up today after five hotly contested days of at times scintillating football. Whilst there were many great teams, and some definite prospects for future AFL team lists, it was a domination in the end by the Western Australians.

With both their Kickstart indigenous team and their All Nations multicultural team going through the round robin stages undefeated, both went in as favourites.

Neither had to play in yesterday’s Semi Final stage after topping the ladder (first and second placed teams went straight to the Preliminary Final stage), so they were able to watch on and prepare physically and mentally for their “prelims”.

The Semi Final stage in Kickstart saw the Victoria/Tasmania team down Queensland, whilst South Australia defeated the New South Wales/ACT team in the other.

Internationals playing in Australia as season gets underway

General News
Preseason is over and it's time to get serious, we take a look at the Internationals plying their footy trade across Australia from the AFL, VFL, WAFL and more.  And wait there is more, we also have Internationals in the VWFL and two Americans playing in the curtain raiser at the SCG this Saturday. 
 
In the AFL on Friday night Zach Tuohy (Ireland) became the fifth code crosser to play 100 AFL games. After being picked up in the 2010 Rookie Draft, Tuohy was elevated to the club’s senior list during the 2011 season and made his debut against Port Adelaide in Round 11, 2011. He has become a fixture in Carlton’s backline (and named in the Coaches Association All-Australian Team in 2015) is a vital link up player and zone buster with his accurate long kicking and dash out of the backline. 
 
In his 100th match which Carlton lost by 60 points Tuohy was caught up in a melee when he reacted angrily after he was slung to the ground by Buddy Franklin. Tuohy was cited by the match review panel  and has accepted a $1000 sanction for engaging in a melee (along with team mate Sam Rowe and Luke Parker, Dan Hannebery and Buddy Franklin from the Swans all receiving the same fine).
