I managed to pick out a dozen or so of my footy mates I've come to know over the past 3 years.

Yep, this was going to be an unforgettable weekend.

Nationals Pools

The USAFL National Tournament Committee is pleased to announce this year's National Tournament pools. As you can imagine, this is a difficult task given the geographical disparity of the teams. 2002 is the first year that we have a third division due to the growth of the tournament to 24 teams.
