Im hearing a new competition is seriously being looked at, its just a matter of what clubs get a licence into it. [ or can afford to be apart of it]
VFL Teams - Williamstown, Port Melbourne, Sandringham, Werribee and Box Hill
NEAFL Teams - Southport, Aspley, Canberra and Sydney Uni
Tasmania, 10 team competition, that includes Victoria, Sydney,Queensland, Canberra and Tasmania.
AFL Teams Sydney, GWS, Brisbane and Gold Coast suns would play in the stand alone AFL Reserves comp with all the Victorian AFL teams only.
WA and SA competitions would remain....

I actually heard very similar during the year also, the competition would be made up of teams from Sydney, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania and Canberra.

This shows the AFL still haven't learned. The proposed league has the same problem that both the NEAFL and TSL have: they're not localised. There's little travelling support and players have to take a fair chunk of time out of their lives for games and travel, when they're not being paid like full professionals. Anywhere past a 200km journey at most is unwieldy. The TSL is only just hanging on in two cities separated by that distance, after culling areas any further out like Devonport and Burnie.

We should go back to separate leagues for Sydney, Canberra and Brisbane/Gold Coast.

No unfortunately
9 teams in the NEAFL competition for season 2020.
Maybe even less. I've heard that more than one community team is struggling to see a reason to carry on given the new rule changes and the direction the AFL is clearly taking things - i.e. all about AFL clubs as usual and no build of the local NEAFL clubs and their games as the top brand for local footy.

There were a few rumblings a month or two ago about Redland but my understanding is that they have committed to giving it a full crack while the NEAFL is still in existence, to review their future if an when that changes.

they have recruited really well for the upcoming season kudos to them

Word coming out of the Bay, is they will play finals this year after the recruiting that they have done.
I look forward to see how it all unfolds for them in 2020.

Traveled down to Southport sharks yesterday to watch the Sharks V Bombers Game.
the oval is in pristine condition and except for the blusterous winds a fast game was expected. The sharks were a lot cleaner with ball in hand and their tackling pressure forced a lot of easy turnovers from the bombers. Saying that when the bombers did turn it on, they played some good football.
A lot of improvement to come from both clubs.
final score Southport 10.10.70 Redlands 7.5.47
