Further additions have been made to the AFL New Zealand squads for the upcoming ANZAC and International Cup campaigns in April and August.
The New Zealand squad has been updated in preparation for the ANZAC and International Cup campaigns in 2017.
Brad Mavor (Canterbury), Jackson Clince (Auckland), Nick Bailey (Auckland) and Harison Manks (Wellington) have been added to the squad with a selection of Under 18 players released to focus on their upcoming tour of Melbourne in early May.
Chris Mundell will take on the duties as head coach of a talented Under 18 team and has also been named as an Assistant Coach of the Senior team.
The two campaigns will include ANZAC to be played at Westpac Stadium on April 24th 2017 and the International Cup in Melbourne in August 2017. The two campaigns will see their respective selection processes carried out independently of each other. Criteria for eligibility will vary for the two campaigns with considerations placed on performance, International Scholarship status and player development, all factors in selection.
Those involved in the initial squad who are not selected for the ANZAC campaign and fulfil the required criteria, will still have the opportunity to be selected for the International Cup.
