    Starting from this season, the tri-state rotational agreement between the South Australian, Victorian and Western Australian leagues in regards to the Interstate matches will be partially expanded. Since 2003, an agreement was reached where the three leagues have played each other over a three year period in which one league would either sit out representative football or make alternative arrangements once in those three years.

    During my time in Gold Coast I picked up a copy of the NEAFL Record at the Southport Sharks vs. Gold Coast Suns reserves match at Fankhauser Reserve in Southport. It detailed the new program, in which the NEAFL and Tasmanian State Leagues -- categorised as Cat-2 leagues -- will fill the voids created by these 'byes' taken by the Cat-1 competitions.

    The weekend of May 26 this year will kickstart this new era. You can class it as a "State League weekend" or "Residents weekend" depending on where you live. Tasmania will be the first to front up against major opposition when it takes on Victoria in the Apple Isle. The new program will continue in 2013 when the NEAFL's Northern Conference (QLD/NT) will face South Australia in Queensland.

    Let the new era begin!

    Well that will be interesting. Tasmanian league with an 80k salary cap, unless you are in a 'special' club. Plays the VFL with a salary cap way above 6 figures, plus AFL listed players. That will be 'interesting'. Especially after Burnie ( some describe as a 'special' club) lost to VFL club Werribee by nearly a 150 points :)eek:).
    OMG Tassie should be playing Geelong or O&M leagues. The VFL could win by a thousand points!!!!
    At least it will show how much our poor footy has been decimated by AFL 'management' over the years

    VFL state team only consists of VFL listed players (and possibly AFL rookie listed players) so it should be more even than the North Melbourne Reserves vs Burnie game played last weekend!
