Quokkas and Koalas join AFL Germany

‘Newest Team in Town’ introduces some of the upcoming Australian Football clubs who have recently joined their respective league’s around Europe.

Reporter for AFL Europe, James Brosnan, hears from Emily Flanagan and Stefan Röpstorff about the rise of two new teams in Germany.

As AFL Germany re-emerges from the COVID-19 lockdown, they do so with two new clubs.

Both the Leipzig Quokkas and the Kiel Koalas laid the foundations of their clubs pre-lockdown, re-emerging to establish themselves when training was given the green light in May.

Both the Quokkas and the Koalas are confident of getting sides together for friendly matches this season and are hopeful of having competition-ready teams for the 2021 season.

In the country’s east, about 200km south of Berlin, the Leipzig Quokkas had three small sessions prior to the pandemic.

Emily Flanagan from the Quokkas has been encouraged by the start the club has made.

“There was a WhatsApp group with people who used to train around Leipzig so I jumped on that and decided that I would start recruiting,” Flanagan said.

“We have had quite a few people down and a nice little community going here so it’s really cool.

“We have been training for about a month and a half now again down at the local park. The most we have had is 18 players and I was really proud of that.

“With the summer I think it’s hard with people coming and going on holidays so we will start to get into recruiting again when schools goes back.”

A post shared by Leipzig Quokkas (@leipzig_aussie_rules_footy) on

The Quokkas will look to establish both men’s and women’s teams from the outset.

“Germans are really interested in it – maybe because it is such a unique sport,” Flanagan said.

“90 per cent of our players have never seen (Australian) football before so it really is just basic skill development at the moment, but there has been such an improvement already and I have been super impressed with their commitment.

Hailing from Perth, Flanagan had never played Australian football. However, prior to moving to Germany she lived in Scotland where she played her first year of footy with the Edinburgh Bloods.

Like Flanagan, Stefan Röpstorff learnt the game in the UK playing a season for the West London Wildcats before relocating back to his homeland.

“About a year ago we moved back to Germany and thought I need to start a club around here, I thought it would be some fun,” Röpstorff said.

Based near the Danish border in the north of the country, Röpstorff started making a website and information flyers for the Kiel Koalas back in January.

“I asked around for some people and I got a few people interested but then the forced break came about and actually I think it may have helped spread the word a little bit more,” Röpstorff said.

“When we actually started and got to do the first training session I think everyone was very keen to get out and do something again, that probably helped raise motivation.

“It’s gone much better than I had hoped.

“It’s making an impact as it seems. I’m really happy with how people are picking up on it and everyone is enjoying it more than I expected actually.”

The Koalas are in talks to try and get a game against the Hamburg Dockers (located approximately 100km south of Kiel) later this season and potentially soon after head north into Denmark for another match.

“It would be great to play a game at some point. Most of us around here have never played the game before or even knew about it.” Röpstorff said.

“I’m always stressing to new players that this is new for everyone so they don’t think they are joining in with a bunch of professionals and won’t get a touch of the footy. It’s something everyone can try.”

The Koalas are encouraging both men and women to come along and be part of the club, with training now twice a week on Monday and Wednesday.

To help build the club and knowledge of the game, the Koalas held a raffle in which each player drew out an AFL club.

“First of all, if they become premiers the player wins some beer.  But we also got them to inform themselves about the club, tell us a little bit about them and why we should support them in an upcoming match,” Röpstorff said.

“That’s been really engaging for everyone, and everyone has their favourite club now. We have been watching a few games together; everyone is picking up on it really quickly.”

Race to the MCG – Week Six Review

ANOTHER week down in the Race to the MCG and both competitions have officially surpassed the halfway point.

From Garmin’s server outage, to plenty of movement in both the weekly and overall leaderboards, week six has been full of surprises.

In the women’s, a 1,600km performance from Germany has further extended their lead over the other six teams in the competition.

Led by Theresia. M (141.9km), Germany last week became the first women’s side to reach the halfway mark.

Scotland and Wales have held second and third position respectively, while 62.5km from Tilda. B and 56.5km from Katren. R has helped Sweden reach their best weekly finish yet, landing 4th position.

With what could be yet another month of running to go, the five teams from last week who beat their week one benchmark have done so once again and are still in the draw to win free entry into the 2021 Euro Cup.

The Switzerland women’s remain as one of those five teams who have continued to beat their week one benchmark.

The Swiss team, who is made up of a number of players and one club committee member, have kept consistent since the start of the competition.

“They (Switzerland women’s) are really enjoying the competition and the extra incentive to go on for runs, walks and hikes,” said AFL Switzerland president, Stefan Burgener.

With the postponement of the Swiss league (announced back in May) and the cancellation of team trainings, Switzerland have enjoyed participating in the competition.

“The extra motivation to go running and stay fit also helps, particularly with the AFL Switzerland league starting back on the 8th of August,” said Burgener.

With still a month of competition expected to go, Switzerland have set their sights on a few goals they hope to achieve before the end of the race.

“They (Switzerland women’s) want to overtake France in 6th spot in the rankings, and to continue to beat their weekly target and remain in the draw to win free entry into next year’s Euro Cup.”

In the men’s, large contributions from James. G, Jon. S and Tom. C has helped Wales further occupy the top spot and charge past a total of 12,000km.

Week six efforts by Scotland, Germany Croatia and England affected no positional movements while Ireland have regained seventh position thanks to a handy 100km from Dean. R.

Still sitting above Ireland is Switzerland, maintaining sixth place for the fifth week in a row supported by a healthy 120km contribution from Patrick. T.

Another impressive week from Poland saw them tally their highest weekly distance yet as well as their highest placing, fourth!

Their efforts have also seen them jump up to 9th position on the overall leaderboard.

Scotland, falling just short of their week one benchmark, has now left just Wales, Germany, Poland and Austria as the four teams in the draw to win free entry into the 2021 Euro Cup.

Devils look to expand game across Poland

‘Newest Team in Town’ introduces some of the upcoming Australian Football clubs who have recently joined their respective league’s around Europe.

Reporter for AFL Europe, James Brosnan, spoke with the president of AFL Poland, Phil Forbes, discussing Poland’s plans to extend participation across the country.

AS THE game of Australian Football continues to expand across Europe, the Polish Devils have taken a unique path to grow their club over the past two years.

Based in Warsaw, the Devils created their identity to help build a national team and will now look to grow their domestic competition following the COVID-19 disruptions.

President of AFL Poland, Phil Forbes, sees it as an exciting opportunity in the coming years after starting the Devils back in November 2018.

“Looking back now I think we approached this incorrectly, but correctly for our goals. At the moment, we are a Warsaw club in a national disguise,” he said.

“Our first goal was to get to the Euro Cup and you can’t take Warsaw to the Euro Cup, you have to take Poland.”

Devils debut at the 2019 Euro Cup.

After some initial training sessions which built numbers quickly, the Polish Devils made it to the 2019 Euro Cup held in Sweden.  It was an experience which helped solidify the club and the game to their Warsaw-based players.

“We had 16 blokes at the Euro Cup, we didn’t win a game but that’s not the point,” Forbes said.

“Our day had finished and we were all on cloud nine enjoying some beers and I remember six of our Polish guys said that this was insane and were so glad they joined up and started playing.

“Those guys now tell our new recruits that you’ve every chance to play for and represent Poland.

“That is not an opportunity that a lot of other sporting codes can give you after coming to training half a dozen times.”

The club currently has around 30 registered players and are looking at ways to split the club into two teams to help kick start the game across Poland.

“From a Warsaw point of view, we have enough players here for two teams. That’s our goal for the end of the year, to divvy up our playing group into two teams, have them train together but regularly have them play each other.

“Building on those Warsaw teams is something we want to do, to instil that ownership and pride amongst the players.”

AFL Poland is working hard to grow the game in other parts of the country.

Wrocław is a city in the south-west of the country with close to 30 people signed up for basic training sessions later this month.

There is also growing interest in new teams from Poznan and Bydgoszcz in the west.

“We need to give that ownership of the national team to Poles and of the Warsaw team to Warsaw players.

“Australian Football started here because it was a group of Aussies wanting to do an Australian thing in Poland. We are at that point now where we have traction; we now want to turn it into an Australian sport that is played by, managed and operated by Poles in Poland.

“That’s a challenge, but it’s certainly our goal along with diversifying out of Warsaw.

“I want to tell people in Warsaw that they are good, but there is people all over the country in five or six cities, that have just as much right to play for Poland as you, so get better.”

For now, the Devils have been able to return to full contact training and some normality.

The club is eagerly anticipating hosting a tournament in Warsaw on Saturday 12 September.

“We are hoping to have the two Warsaw teams, Dresden, Prague and one or two Austrian teams over for the tournament,” Forbes said.

“It will be the first Australian Football tournament ever played on Polish soil. We are hoping to get a lot of people here and use it as an open day to try and promote the game.”

A recent facebook post from Forbes asking for any old football gear to his friends back in Australia may have just landed the identities of the two Warsaw based teams. After seeing the post, both the South Belgrave Saints and Sandown Cobras Football & Netball Clubs agreed to send full kits of old playing uniforms to help grow the game in Poland.

Race to the MCG – Week Five Review

IT’S BEEN an enduring five weeks for our 20 teams competing in the Race to the MCG.

Since the beginning of the race, all participants have collectively run an outstanding 75,000km.

Over a month from launch, we’re pleased to still see all teams continue to participate and get outside to log some stellar efforts.

In the women’s competition, the weekly and overall leaderboards have once again gone unchanged.

The top three teams in Germany, Scotland and Wales continue to steam ahead whilst Croatia and France have unfortunately become the first teams who were unable to reach their week one benchmark.

Sweden have remained consistent in fifth, and are beginning to run away from France who currently sit in sixth.

Switzerland continue to push through, and round out the five remaining teams with the chance  to win free entry into the 2021 Euro Cup.

In the men’s competition, the fight for first place continues up top with Wales able to narrowly extend their lead over Scotland.

Germany, Croatia and England have remained consistent to sit in third, fourth and fifth respectively.

France’s weekly finish in seventh place has allowed them to gain one position on the overall leaderboard.

Also moving up on the overall leaderboard was Poland who had their best week on the track yet, impressing all by finishing sixth.

The Polish team is made up of a mixture of players in Warsaw, as well as potential players in Wroclaw where AFL Poland are attempting to start a new team.

Hearing from the president of AFL Poland, Phil Forbes, about the positive mindset the team has established, Poland’s big improvement in week five comes as no surprise.

“AFL is still hardly known as a sport here in Poland – so if we compare where we’re at to that of other countries, we’ll always be in their shadow. It’s comparing apples to oranges,” Forbes said.

Despite finishing last at the end of week one, Poland have continued to better their results week after week.

“In the beginning, we had absolutely no idea how we’d place, so it wasn’t overly surprising to be dead last after week one, even though we all gave a little extra.

“But that set a precedent, ‘a little extra’ wasn’t enough. We all had to pull our weight and do more.

“There are a few blokes stuck in Australia at the moment, and they’re doing what they can from there, too.

“Seeing guys go on vacation for a week but still get out there and put the effort in, that’s really making it feel like a team effort.”

Featuring the best online posts from the AFL Europe community, PSS International Removals Presents: Around the Grounds – Socials Edition.

It’s been exciting to see so many teams around Europe safely return to training and now even commence competitive matches and leagues!

AFL Finland were one of those fortunate enough to field games last week, hosting their own “Hammerglass Game Day”.

Over 30 players attended the day to compete in a number of friendly matches made up of mixed teams.

It’s great to see all the hard work being done in Finland to allow Australian Football to continue to grow across the country! We’d like to applaud all involved in what looked like a very fun and successful day.

It was awesome to see three women and two juniors getting involved in the games too!

Community football has returned in New South Wales, Australia and it couldn’t have happened in any other way.

A local match in Merimbula was interrupted by two unexpected guests, who bounced onto the field and weaved through the opposition.

One of the most Australian videos you’ll ever see!

The Hamburg Dockers are looking forward to welcoming the Hamburg League in 2020.

Three teams in the Pirates, Swans and Wombats will compete in a six round season, wrapping up around mid-September.

Captains for the three teams have already been announced, as they prepare to draft their teams on the 22nd of July.

The North London Lions are back!

The Lions have joined a number of teams in the United Kingdom to be able to return to training over the past few weeks.

Check out this throwback to one of their training sessions at Regents Park in 2017/2018.

Further north in the UK, it’s the Edinburgh Bloods who have also returned to training.

The Bloods spread their training across two rugby pitches with 20 players split into four groups.

“We have men’s and women’s teams of all skills, nationality’s, ages and level of banter. So if you’re keen to give it a crack, we want you.”

The Geelong Cats featured young Irishman, Mark O’Connor on their Instagram last week.

Mark “Grow’Connor” has had a great start to the 2020 AFL season, averaging just over 13 touches across six games.

The Cats have won their past three matches and will look to continue their hot form against Fremantle on the 27th of July.

As we head back over to Germany, another city is getting ready to host some competitive football.

The Dresden Wolves are looking forward to holding their first footy tournament in 2020.

The Wolves will welcome the Strasbourg Kangaroos, Prague Dragons and Leipzig Quokkas on the 1st of August for a big day of footy action!

The Basel Dragons from AFL Switzerland have made news in Australia.

The Dragons featured in an article that was published into the Herald Sun newspaper.

‘Swiss get an AFL lesson’ highlighted the practice match between Basel and Winterthur, which included former AFL player and Brisbane AFLW coach (since 2017), Craig Starcevich.

From the Herald Sun in Melbourne, Victoria,…

Race to the MCG – Week Four Review

IT’S BEEN just one month of our Race to the MCG competition and some teams are already approaching the halfway mark!

Week four saw a number of competitors improve from week three, as 36 of them muscled through to run over 100km.

The top sides in Wales (men’s) and Germany (women’s) have continued to impress, recording their highest weekly tallies to date.

In the women’s competition, all seven teams have once again surpassed their week one benchmark and remain in the draw to win free entry into the 2021 Euro Cup.

There has been no positional changes on the women’s ladder as Germany, who had seven runners achieve 100km last week, maintain a steady lead from the rest of the competition.

The two UK sides don’t sit far apart in 2nd and 3rd, and in 5th and 6th, less than 100km separate Sweden and France.

Wales have maintained some mighty efforts over the past two weeks which has left AFL Wales president James Gibson extremely impressed.

“We thought this was a monster challenge and that sustaining anything more than 50km a week would be tough… but now a 10km morning walk has become routine and a good stretch of the legs,” said Gibson.

Both the men’s and women’s Welsh teams are made up of current and past players and coaches, which Gibson said has been beneficial for the AFL Wales community.

The drive for Wales to succeed in this competition goes beyond internal competition’s and the chance at a brand new playing kit, thanks to O’Neills, as they are now raising money for the Jacob Abraham Foundation. The Wales teams have pledged to donate 10p per kilometre they achieve.

On finishing the race and achieving first position, Gibson remains positive in Wales chances.

“We seem to have developed a healthy rivalry with both Scotland teams… it will be good to play them in a game of footy sometime soon too.

“All in all, we’re confident we can sustain our current efforts albeit exhausting!”

In the men’s competition, things are heating up at the top of the table as Germany, Scotland and Wales post their highest scores yet.

The three teams, as well as Austria and Poland, are the only teams to now remain in the draw to win free entry into the 2021 Euro Cup.

Improving on their week three total, Sweden have managed to jump three positions on the weekly ladder, as both they and France edge their way closer to Ireland on the overall leaderboard.

Since the start of the competition, the Austrian men’s is the only (men’s or women’s) team to have continued to improve on each weekly total.

AFL Austria president Martin Schittegg has been pleased with their results and shared with us some information on the team.

“At the moment, there are mostly active players in our team however we were able to motivate some of our legends to set off with us on our journey towards Melbourne,” said Schittegg.

Austria have been unable to field a full team of 30 however remain positive on competing in the big race.

“The boys motivate themselves internally by developing small private duels… everyone wants to go further than each other.

“We definitely still want to improve and we want to reach at least the Mediterranean Sea before the first clubs finish the race!”
