The New Zealand senior team will compete in the annual ANZAC clash against the AFL Academy at Marvel Stadium (formerly Etihad Stadium) in Melbourne on April 27th.
The match traditionally hosted by Wellington’s Westpac Stadium over the past 8 years has been relocated to the home of football, in a move that will see New Zealand work towards their first ever win against the Australian team.
New Zealand’s coaching group will now assemble an initial squad that is sure to include talented athletes based in both Australia and New Zealand.
The final squad to travel to Melbourne will be announced on Monday the 8th of April.
