Oceania Good news for Australian football in Samoa, with plans for a development officer to be appointed.

Australian Rules football has had a presence in Samoa for several years now. The Samoans participated in the 2002 International Cup in Melbourne, finishing in 7th spot. There is still much to be done to develop the game in the island nation, and it is pleasing to see that an AusAID position has been made available, with the assistance of the AFL, much as has happened previously for Tonga with the help of Brian Clarke. Details of the position can be found at the AusAID website.
