Australia will participate in the World Championship for the second time since 1999!!!
The Australian Senior Outback Head coach John Leijten selected the first 40 players to the senior national team that will compete at the 2011 IFAF Senior World Championship this July in Austria. The camp was held at Runaway Bay training center on the Gold Coast in February. Close to 70 players from six states made their way to the Gold Coast to impress the coaches and make the final 45 man roster that will travel to Austria.
“We selected the best players,” said Leijten. “Although the Outback players still need to improve we also need players with experience who are good enough now. We also have younger players on the team who have great potential and over the course of the next five months and long term will physically develop into fine football players.”
