Nup. No professional sport anywhere in the world has as many players with non AFL backgrounds. Yank basketballers. Gaelic footballers. Basketballers, rugby players, Rugby League players. They all have no experience of the game and waltz in and hey presto...........they're stars!!!!Quolls2019 wrote: ↑Fri Jun 04, 2021 1:18 pm Actually a swans academy trainee who was told by his manager that his height, frame and weight would not be advantageous for rugby.
So after 2 years (at least) training the player himself thinks he won’t play until mid way through 2023 at the earliest.
Perhaps no so easy, but does embrace a variety of sizes and shapes because of the variety of skills needed.
Easiest, lamest professional sport in the world!!!
