« on: October 12, 2017, 12:25:12 PM »
GEELONG-bound Gold Coast superstar Gary Ablett is one of nine debutants in Australia's 17-man squad to face Ireland in the Virgin Australia International Rules Series in November. 

Ireland holds the Cormac McAnnellen Trophy thanks to its victory in the one-off Test at Croke Park in Dublin two years ago. 

Matches will be played at Adelaide Oval on Sunday, November 12 and Perth's Domain Stadium on Saturday, November 18. 

Geelong coach Chris Scott is in charge of the Australian side, with support from his brother Brad Scott and Fremantle's Ross Lyon. 

Ticket prices for both venues start at $25 for adults and $50 for a family ticket.

Stupid game, stupid concept

Absolutely brilliant that there are no Tigers in the squad  :clapping

But reigning Brownlow and Norm Smith Medallist Martin, who last month led Richmond to a drought-breaking AFL premiership, was a notable absentee from the 17-man squad announced on Thursday.

Coaching panel representative Luke Ball said the enigmatic Tigers midfielder was invited to play but opted out, as did West Coast wingman Andrew Gaff.

"He was sounded out and certainly expressed strong interest in the concept, as most players do," Ball said of Martin.

"In the end, he got back to us only last night and said 'look, the body needs a rest', and that's understandable with the season that he's had."

Fyfe's goal was a cracker.

Goddard must think he's a Colombian goalkeeper or something. A number of times he just went wandering leaving the goalmouth open.

Tonight was one of the best IR games. The Irish are getting better at matching the Aussies in the physical stuff.

LOL at Selwood being a chance of getting rubbed out for the start of next season by getting himself sent off for his high bump :stupid.
