The finals for the state leagues around the country are almost done and dusted (SANFL up to prelims; the rest are completed). So we can start to get an idea which clubs will be in the running for Foxtel Cup spots in 2013 depending if it will stay a 16 team comp. or be reduced to just 8 teams (hopefully not the latter). VFL: (3 spots) Port Melbourne (runners-up), Werribee (3rd), Williamstown (4th). Premiers Geelong may miss out being a stand alone AFL affiliate? SANFL: (3 spots but top sides have declined so far) Norwood, West Adelaide, North Adelaide Norwood has refused to participate up to now but Westies and North have. So we might finally get some 'top' SANFL 3 sides participating in the Foxtel Cup next year. WAFL: (3 spots) Claremont (premiers), East Fremantle (runners-up), Swan Districts (3rd) TSL: (1 spot 2011; 2 spots 2012) Burnie (premiers), Launceston (runners-up) Tassie will be lucky to have one representative after both sides were flogged in the first round this year. NEAFL North: (2 spots plus a 3rd for NT) NT Thunder (runners-up), Southport (3rd), Redland (4th) Overall NEAFL champions and northern conference premiers Brisbane Lions may miss out being a stand alone AFL affiliate? NEAFL East: (2 spots) Queanbeyan (premiers), Eastlake (3rd) Sydney Swans (runners-up) may miss out being stand alone AFL affiliate? AFL Sydney: (1 spot in 2011; none in 2012) UNSW/Eastern Suburbs (premiers) Doubt the local Sydney comp. will have a rep. but threw them into the discussion for good measure.
