Fo­lau’s AFL de­but push

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

Is­rael Fo­lau LEAGUE con­vert Is­rael Fo­lau is push­ing to make his Aus­tralian rules de­but for Greater West­ern Syd­ney against Port Ade­laide this Satur­day af­ter the AFL con­firmed the NAB Chal­lenge game would go ahead in the Barossa Val­ley. Port had pre­vi­ously re­quested that the game be can­celled so they could play a stronger state league side ahead of their round one clash against premiers Colling­wood. But an im­proved per­for­mance by the Gi­ants in the 73-point loss to North Mel­bourne last Satur­day night has ap­peased some of the doubters.
