With the 2017 AFL Queensland U/16 tournament getting under way last Sunday - this weeks only mid week match saw the South Pacific squad make it's first appearance against the strong North Queensland side. The South Pacific lads arrived Tuesday morning and were straight into a training session to try to 'gell' before the game the next day.
The venue was Burpengary, a northern suburb of Brisbane overlooking Moreton Bay and also home to a recently developed AFL facility including 3 playing fields. As it was yesterday - from 1 pm the venue played host to the South Pacific side. However - the task was too great and the inability to finish off their hard work saw North QLD able to set up play after play rebounding from defence.
We wrap up our season preview series, and our womenâs previews, with the Western region.
The West is responsible for Womenâs Divisional titles in each of the last seven seasons; Six in a row by Denver and last yearâs steak ending triumph by San Francisco in Divvy 1, and Portland in Division 2, who did so alongside Calgary in 2015, and Seattle and Arizona in 2016.
