THE AFL North Coast’s representative team faces a strong challenge on the Queen’s Birthday weekend as they try to maintain their reputation as one of the best leagues in Country New South Wales.
The Interleague side will look to continue their recent success when they play against the best combination that the Tamworth/Armidale competition can create on Saturday, June 12 at Armidale’s Bellevue Oval.
There is also the AFL NSW/ACT Regional Championships being played in Wagga Wagga on the same weekend but League administrators decided not to send a North Coast team down south this year after participating in the inaugural staging of the event a couple of seasons ago.
The League is excited to play the developing TAFL side which has had similar success in recent years and should pose a strong test to the travelling Coast side.
Last year the AFL North Coast team defeated the South Coast at the BCU International Stadium.
Current coaching co-ordinator Peter Chadwick will coach the AFL North Coast squad – a just reward for the fact that Chadwick has been an integral member of past Interleague squads and has strong leadership credentials.
The process of selecting the playing squad will be starting shortly.
