One of the reasons for forming AFL Asia is to provide a catalyst for alumni of Asian footy to find each other.
In Melbourne at the Monash Blues, some Vietnam Swans have hooked up with a Malaysian Warrior along with a few other international clubs.
In the photo, we have from left: Pinky Beecroft (Monash Blues): Luke Chevy Levinstein, Wadsley Demons, London; Matty Hollywood McCart, Malaysian Warriors and Stockholm; Ben Dempsey (in background), Belfast Redbacks; Michael Davidson, Poland Purple Tigers; Luke Creamer, Vietnam Swans; and Martin Beecroft, Vietnam Swans.
As AFL Asia takes root, we are expecting that Asia’s footy alumni will find each other around the water cooler vigorously discussing results / expected results of Super Saturdays, ANZAC Weekends, Asian Championships, Manila Cups, Indochina Cups, Changi Cups etc.
How good is the footy in Asia??
