I had a great time the team is fantastic and very welcoming!

Part III - Arriving in Sydney

After what felt like several days in the air my flight finally arrived in Sydney, Australia on 2 August 2011 at 8:45am. I was welcomed at the airport by the Sydney Swans Academy Coach, Paul “Roosy” Roos.

Roosy told me that I would be staying with him and his beautiful family at his house which I found an unbelievable gesture.

Learn, Play, Live Australian Rules Football!

Welcome to my blog...I am Lara Porter from the Denver Bulldogs. I am very excited to be headed down to Australia to play in Brisbane with the Yeronga Devils. My journey began in August when I had the opportunity to represent the USA on The Freedom team in Melbourne and Sydney at the 2011 IC (International Cup). I began conversations with Leigh Barnsey, USA Freedom Coach, about my desire to come back to Australia and play with an actual Australian team and how much I could learn. Barnsey was a great supporter of the idea.
