AFL in Central Queensland

Post by Fred »

This article talks about how one team”s record breaking winning streak is growing the game of Ausstralian Rules in the area.

Whilst it does speak to the length amd breadth of Aussie rules permeating it’s presence across this wide brown land, one does have to wonder as to the quality of the league when this team wins games by very large margins week in and week out. I guess the article does state it is Rl heartland that “afl” has this presence.

I would have thought that a more even competition would be a better attraction for new participants and converts.
There are lies, damn lies and then there are ratings.
Rugby league, Australias most popular game in some of North Eastern Australia.

Rockhampton and Gladstone has been struggling in more recent times and Yeppoon have taken advantage of this. AFL Capricornia isn't the weakest competition in the state (I think that falls to AFL Wide Bay a little further south). But this past weekend the Swans didn't get a huge win. The streak is up to 120 now I think.

What I like though is that almost no matter where you go in Australia you can play AFL both senior and junior level. I know you can with most sports although RU and RL you can't.

spending a bit of time in Port douglas these days the AFL presence. I know the two NRL nuffies on here will have a meltdown - but them the facts.


and 1 . 2 . 3 ........ go



Thank god I have them on ignore :)

Meltdown as predicted. Well done, Fred, although it was probably visible from the other side of Lake Eyre!

Funny though - they play Aussie rules and Rockhampton and Gladstone (and Yeppoon). But where's the thugby in Victoria, SA, WA and Tasmania? I can wait! :mrgreen:

Melbourne’s is growing but generally about 12 or 13 teams - no country teams last time I looked. And Tassie had none. SA about 4 clubs but it has been a while since I looked it up.

I did note in Melbourne crown area where I had been for a conference the bar had the Rl on the TVs Thursday night )bo afl on- but still this is a big change. So some inroads there.

I would actually suggest that RL being number 1 in Queensland is debatable! It sure as heck isn't number one in Cairns, Mackay, the Sunshine Coast or the Darling Downs! And Aussie Rules is more than competitive in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast! The only other places I would give RL the definite lead is Townsville and maybe Mount Isa. Aside from Rocky, Gladstone and Bundy of course.

As someone who follows the Aussie rules leagues in Queensland I can tell you that you are not correct.

Live with it.
