The ARFLI women had a very successful inaugural ARFLIW Draft Cup 2017 last Saturday in Islandbridge, Dublin.   They were playing the 7s format of the game that is a great introduction format for new players.  There were 8 teams from across Ireland playing with many players trying Aussie Rules for the first time.  There were 12 pool matches and a Grand Final.

The winning West Clare Waves


The eventual winners were West Clare Waves , one of our newly formed clubs making their footy debut, who were outstanding all day long. In the Grand Final they fought out an very close battle against the North East Kookaburras eventually coming out on top.
