THE AFL is taunting rival footy codes by erecting free goalposts in a staggering 100 schools throughout Sydney and regional NSW.
It has left the NRL, ARU and FFA deeply concerned.
With cash, ambition and resources, the AFL continues to push deep into the rugby league and rugby union heartlands. Parents have noticed the AFL posts popping up around NSW.
The success of Sydney Swans and GWS Giants has further enhanced the AFL’s product and brand throughout Sydney and NSW.
Swans south of the harbour, Giants the greater west and a new team called "North Shore" or "North Sydney" to take over north of the harbour.
