AFL New Zealand Academy Level 2 team announced

The New Zealand Hawks Academy Level 2 will play a two match series against the Mornington Peninsula BlueScope Steelers on 22nd and 24th April 2017 at Hutt Park and Westpac Stadium in Wellington.


The squad sees an even split of return players and debutants with the development of the players improved through participation in the inaugural AFLNZ Youth Competition, that was a great success.

Game 2 on the 24th of April will be played on Westpac Stadium and act as the curtain raiser for the AFL New Zealand Senior side versus the Australian U17 Academy.

Congratulations to all involved and good luck.
