The Aussie team lost the first match by 22-points to Ireland , at Breffni Park in Cavan . Post match , their coach admitted they struggled with using a round ball , and found the positioning of the game confusing . He was not satisfied with their chase , run and tackling skills and believed they  failed to apply pressure to the opposition .

Buddy Franklin , new Sydney recruit , was one of the best on ground for the Aussies , but has now left  to attend a wedding back home .
The Australians will find it difficult to win the International Rules Series and the Cormac McAnnellen Perpetual Trophy.

The Indigenous All-Stars will have to win the Second Test by at least 23 points to do so. Coach O’Loughlin , believes they can win but concedes

“It’s going to be tough, absolutely, really, really tough. But stranger things have happened,” he said.

Reports of late night partying by the team after the loss , have also been downplayed by the coach . He believes they have settled now , are focused , and as a proud group of elite , AFL footballers , will attempt to win the Series and take pride in wearing  their indigenous football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys .

 Swaps , trades , and drafts is the language bandied around the empty ovals and behind closed doors of club’s admin HQ.
Older players are retired , re-housed,  re – hashed and re- branded as they swap clubs and pledge allegiance to another , all for the sake of the mighty dollar , and the welfare of the team .New draftees are selected , young kids with big dreams off playing afl football .
Football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys are changed , rebranded with new sponsors , and washed and packed away til the next season . Or are they ? The vintage styles might need a rest . Stretched , strained ,   jostled and ridiculed they  need some R& R during the off season . However ,  the modern , slick , polyester , sleeveless guernsey is good to go anytime , anywhere , anyhow ! A bit like the modern day AFL footballer .
