A brief introduction to AFL (Australian Football League)
previously known as Victoria Football League
AFL has 17 teams with the newly formed Gold Coast Suns
A lot of us are watching AFL for the first time
but we're all supporting Brisbane Lions (Home)
Brisbane Lions was formed in 1996
with the merger of Brisbane Bears and Fitzroy Lions
It is the most successful AFL club in the last decade
having appeared in four consequetive Grand Finals
winning three (2001 - 2003)
Captain of the team is Jonathan Brown
playing Centre half-forward
432 goals since Year 2000
Eden (Taiwan)'s new EOS 600D
Let the Game Begin!
There was a lot of attention on this player
Mitchell Clark (Full Forward / Ruckman)
He is well-known for taking
aerial/contested marks (328 since 2006) and
kicking goals (488 since 2006)
At half-time, children teams came out and play
I believe this is call the Clothesline
A professional wrestling move in which one runs towards another
and extends his arm out from the side hitting the opponent
in the neck - BRUTAL!
It was a very fast-paced and intense game
Mitch Clark was one of the players who got badly wounded
There were a lot of bloodshed throughout the game
The game goes to Fremantle Dockers
BRISBANE LIONS - FREMANTLE DOCKERS
92 : 94
Kick to Kick
After the second bell/siren, everyone charged to the field
to have their go with the balls
Samuel (Australia) showed us a few moves
Michael Voss (Coach) commented
"I felt for most of the match, we should have won. But when you walk away from a match, you walk away with two things. Sometimes you walk away with the four points, or you walk away with the fact you're proud of what you were able to put in to the performance.
I can't fault them, I'm proud of what the guys did, they hung in there. We were courageous, but we didn't get the win. So when you fight so hard for something, it's difficult to walk away licking your wounds."
