Nauru capable of producing top potential AFL players

South Pacific AFL Development Program Coordinator Simon Highfield says they are impressed with participation from the small island nation.

This was following the Under 16 program they had conducted which accommodated 25 players from Nauru, PNG, Vanuatu and Fiji.

Highfield says the passion is unrivalled.

“From the color, to the songs, and the fact that nearly 40% of the whole population play AFL in some competition, their passion certainly flows.”
