What happened to the All Stars, they looked unbeatable early on.
Final score
Big V 154
All Stars 108
Last quarter was a bit of an exhibition
One big crunch tackle towards the end.
This concept could work once every few years perhaps for a different charity.

Problem is that it isn’t taken seriously ... no passion and this would be the case going forward as club”s pay the wages and whilst players say they want to play they also don’t want to get injured and not be available for club games.

FFS, play to your strengths. WA, SA and Vic, the others are token.

How would you suggest that works in a 1 off charity match?


Never realised quite how much hate there was for AFL from our Northern friends.

Yes I agree. SA. WA. VIC. But what do you do when you have champions that come from outside those areas who can’t play? Just off the top of my head could you imagine these Brownlow Medalists not playing in their day ..Hird, Crawford, Buckley, Kelly.. I think that’s the problem ... you would have too many champions not playing.

Do what RL does and have players from certain areas able to play for whatever state.

Well instead of having Victoria, glorious Victoria involved, have a single game having selected the best two teams available as an all stars match, East vs West division devided down the centre of the country or North V South or team green vs team gold from the so called all Australian line up with the others that rated being in whatever side based on points earned the previous year in the Brownlow count or whatever it's called.

How about all Aus side vs the best of the rest that are from other places or identify more to other cultures such as Greeks, Serbs, Italians whatever, there would be enough players. I have a neighbour who I tease about which nation he would fight for if Aus and Macedonia went to war even tho the idiot was born here, all the others in his family were born over there yet he acts like he's Macedonian. (pisses me off)

They have done that but I think it undermines the concept. Dunstal a QLDer played for Victoria and Greg Williams for NSW for instance. Not really state of origin. May be it works in RL as players are either from nsw or qld or overseas?

Not sure what you mean be honest ... okay you say a player came from nt ... all good. But let’s face it Rl in this country is mainly confined to qld and nsw (act). Think that is pretty much accepted.

Or were you referring to afl players from qld and nsw (act) .... which there have been many stars who have excelled at afl.

Just wanted to clarrify.

I’d be interested which players from vic, nt and wa you are referring to? Did they grow up there or move at a young age? I mean someone moving from wa to qld at 13 or 14 and playing rl in their teen years I wouldn’t count as coming from wa per se ... but some one growing up in wa... playing club rl and moving up through the ranks and being recruited at 17 or 18 to an nrl club ... I’d pay that for sure as someone born and bred in wa rl and going on to big time.

It was an okay game but more a bit of fun with hardly any tackles or intensity. The skills were good as you’d expect but bolstered by it basically being a training run exhibition.
