Chance for a sneak peek at AFL future

International Cup 2011
If you barrack for Brisbane, Hawthorn, Richmond, GWS or Essendon - or for that matter any club, you may have good reason to head down to Royal Park tomorrow (Wednesday) and Friday to see players your club has scholarship listed or those that may be playing against your club in future. 
The Ireland Warriors will have Richmond’s newest signing in John Heslin running around in the semi final match against New Zealand, who will have Hawthorn International Scholarship listed player Rhys Panui Leth (pictured left). We have also been informed by the Kiwis that Kurt Heatherley (also on the books at Hawthorn) may also be available for the NZ Hawks. 
Richmond fans should also be on the lookout for Papua New Guinea’s Gideon Simon, listed by the Tigers.  New GWS Giants signings Theo Gavuri (PNG), Jimzan Yoshi-Harris (Nauru), Peni Mahina (Tonga) and Charlton Brown (NZ) should all be on show.

Indians visit Tigerland

International Cup 2011

As referenced in an earlier article, the India Tigers today touched down in Melbourne in preparation for the final leg of the International Cup. The team were quickly bused to Punt Road where local media was on hand to watch Trent Cotchin, Daniel Jackson and David Astbury put the Indian players through their paces.

This was followed by a dinner for the players and several notable members of Melbourne's Indian community, such as Arun Sharma of Celebrate India (the organisation who coordinates Melbourne's Diwali Festival) and Manjula O'Connor of Australia India Society of Victoria. Brett Kirk and his documentary crew were also present at the event.

The Richmond Football Club have been a huge help to the India Tigers, and not only due to today's event. The AFL club provided the squad with their jumpers, shorts and socks and Todd Sigalas (Richmond's Multicultural Development Officer) gave up several Sunday afternoons assisting with training for the Melbourne-based players in the lead-up to the tournament. Simon Matthews, Michael Lacy and Adrian Ceddia have all helped coordinate things behind the scenes.

Whilst the Indian Tigers are yet to achieve their first International victory, they are winning fans off the field. The squad appeared at the Australia-India Friendship Fair in Sydney and managed to not only sell footy to Sydney's Indian community but to Simon Katich and Lisa Sthalekar!

They also managed to get on national television last Friday. The boys woke up early and stood outside the Sunrise studio and were brought in for the show's closing routine; being asked who they were and why they were in Australia. Furthermore, interviews have been done for SBS radio, and additional interviews are scheduled whilst the team is in Melbourne.

Parade of Nations and “Kick to Kick” at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium

International Cup 2011

After the curtain raiser game between the USA Freedom and South Africa Lions, won easily in the end by the Americans, despite hurting themselves with some poor goalkicking, representatives from each team went down to the field to form a guard of honour for the day’s main event: AFL Sydney Swans vs St Kilda.

After that, apart from the Sydney Swans’ forwards’ kicking resembling that of the Americans, the Swans' behinds tally also looking similar, the next time the crowds got some International action was at half time for the Parade of Nations. It started with the International Cup logo, looking enormous on the ANZ Stadium’s big screens, then out the teams came, one by one, from opposite ends of the ground, walking in line in front of the cheering crowds. As they came out, the commentators announced where each team was from to roaring applause. The teams proudly carried their flags (and their kids) and waved back up at the crowds. Some even came over to meet the local kids who were leaning enthusiastically over the barriers.

Game Day 5 - New Zealand shake off Canada to avoid biggest upset in IC history

International Cup 2011

The New Zealand Hawks have come home to defeat the Canada Northwind by 19 points today and stake their claim to a semi-finals berth, but not before the Canadians gave them a scare and even took a 1 point lead over the Hawks into 3/4 time.

New Zealand on past form should have walked through today’s match against Canada with ease, worked on a few things, got some goal kicking practice in preparation for the Melbourne games next week. So why didn’t they? Was it exactly this attitude that made them vulnerable, poor kicking and skill execution, failure to capitalise on a strong breeze? Or was it in fact a well-drilled Canadian team that played a Paul Roos-style game? I am going to suggest it was probably a bit of all those things.

There had been a serious downpour overnight, but good drainage, a stiff breeze and bright sunshine negated this. Canada played the early attacking footy with the breeze and had NZ on the back foot early working hard just to keep them at bay, they appeared to be playing men behind the ball. Canada added one goal and a point for the quarter, and this was matched by NZ so all in all perhaps nothing too surprising there. But if NZ thought they were in for an easy match, all thoughts of this would have gone out the window by now.
