The Semi Final between the Falcons and the Revolution would see the winner go on to contest the Final at the MCG on Saturday. Both sides had impressed throughout the tournament but it was the undefeated Falcons who would go in favourite and come out of today unscathed.

A quick note to say that Spain have withdrawn from Qualifying Final A, which was scheduled for 10am on Thursday 11th August 2005. They are a very new Aussie Rules nation and came to the Cup with a small squad. Having suffered several injuries they were reduced to 15 players on the field (instead of 18) in their last match, so the forfeit to Canada is no surprise. Although the Northwind will enjoy the rest, no doubt they had been looking forward to chalking up their first win in more fulfilling circumstances.

The decision to stage a round of the 2005 International Cup in a country region has proven to be a great success. Round 4 was held in Wangaratta, about 230km northeast of Melbourne. Organised in conjunction with the Victorian Country Football League and V-Line trains, the trip included an official welcome, matches at City Oval and Showgrounds, and a dinner at the Town Hall. With local school children getting time off and becoming involved in the multicultural event, there was a great atmosphere at the two grounds. Country folk have a full appreciation for grassroots footy, and many comments were heard noting just how committed and hard at the ball the players were.

A sluggish looking Irish side came out to play an enthusiastic Samurai outfit at City Oval in Wangarrata today in the opening match of Round 4. The crowd came out in full support of their favourite team and there was a sea a green and red from the local school. Those in red put on a special traditional Japanese dance to give the Samurais some encouragement while those in Green used their strong voices.
