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).

Travelling With Queensland

General News
One of the great benefits of being at a footy carnival such as the National Diversity Championships in Townsville is just how close to the action and the people you can get. Routinely chatting to some of the biggest movers and shakers in the AFL – both past and present – adds an at times surreal feel to being in elite company.

From my own point of view, the chance to travel around with the Queensland squad of Kickstart and All Nations players was a lot of fun and also enlightening. From being on the bench with them at close quarters during matches to relaxing at dinner later in the evening, my experience has been memorable.

Match day, and Queensland All Nations coach, Anda Tyalana allows me to sit (quietly) at the back of the coaches box. It is a great experience to listen to the coaches talk on the run about what is unfolding in front of them.

“Be on the defensive side at ball ups and stoppages to stop their run.”

The Meanings Of National Youth Carnivals

General News

By and large, junior and youth football carnivals do not get the airplay or associated press that goes with the higher level national leagues. That is probably fair in the sense that there are only so many resources available for so many carnivals.

But the value of these carnivals is enormous, as anyone associated with them can tell you. With so many people across so many spheres of football involved it would be no surprise that these carnivals mean different things to different people.

The current National Diversity Championships in Townsville are a great example. From coaches to players, umpires, administrators, media representatives and a host of other employees and volunteers, meanings are as varied as the people who make the carnival happen.
