Cheers boys

It's going to be an excellent year and a bit of frisbee for all the Aussie teams, and for everyone who is part of the support group and training squads.

Keep building the excitement.

Depends on which team, either mixed or women's and whether or not I get to play *laughs*

I long to play with Joy again. Its been years since I've been on a team with her (2004 actually) And Hussey as well, met her finally at nationals this year and she is quite the charming lady with those high release back-hand hucks. I also really liked the 'this is not a box' theme of their nats team, just a little bit absurdist.

I suspect that the Newwie rookie talent of Katie B and Jane A will have a good chance to make it on to one of the teams, despite only playing for 6+ months. They have a remarkable natural talent (They are ex-Australian Netballers I believe) and seem to be pretty fun

I hope that some of the upcoming stars coming out of the juniors age bracket will also play well and get a run.

I suspect that the women's team might end up stealing my favourite players however. Curse them and their possibly being coached by Tom Brennan-ness!

-Tom

ps: Oh, you'd be ok to play with right Ash? Tongue

having looked at the WUGC2008 site, http://wugc2008.com/ , there isn't much up yet... but here is a pretty detailed bid document. looks like the Aussies will have a HQ nextdoor to the Finns and Irish.

There was mention of "Support staff" roles in Piers post on AFDA a while back:

Quote
4.2 Team Support Crew
We are also seeking registration of interest for team selectors, team coaches and squad managers. Many of these positions will involve remuneration of some kind. To register your interest in being a part of the support staff, please send an email to Jonathan Potts, AFDA CEO. This is not a call for formal applications, just a chance for us to identify gaps early and plan the application process, so please let us know if you are at all interested.

I am keen to go and help out even if I am not playing  Cheesy

LOL you could run out with a limp or hobble and a strapped ankle or something so the crowd watching thinks that you would have been on the team but got injured rather than thinking you are just the water bitch...  Roll Eyes

I reckon I'd head over to support the team, especially if my brother manages to make the Juniors team. So I'd be happy to be a support crew dude.

For those interested, particularly prospective Australian representative players, my AFDA endorsed trip to Vancouver was a success.

I was able to perform a field inspection of the venue for Worlds 2008. You may be surprised at the results.

See the report (including photos, turf sampling and map correlation) here: http://thinkulti.blogspot.com/

cheers,
Owen
