The AFL trade period is on, new coaches have been appointed , and assistant coaches are being re - shuffled . The Rugby World Cup Finals continue in New Zealand , and the Victorian Spring Racing Carnival , has commenced. Cricket is on the not too distant horizon , as are the various  Yacht Races.

It begs the question , does the football jumper , jersey , guernsey , go on summer holidays ? For most fans the answer is no . It will be given an airing at other sporting fixtures , and is a popular piece of favourite apparel, seen gracing beaches , bbqs and other social functions during the " off season ".

Friday night footy at the MCG saw the Hawks hold off a fast finishing Blues side .It was a low scoring , fiercely contested tussle between two top four teams .This weekend sees the Saints , Bombers , Bulldogs , Lions , Freo and Crows travel interstate whilst the Magpies , Gold Coast , Power , Eagles , Swans and Kangaroos host visitors at home . Geelong score a rest and in a battle of co-tenants at the MCG , Melbourne play Richmond on Sunday afternoon at the MCG .

Much jostling for the top eight spots , particularly 5th , 6th , 7th, and 8th spots , will play out over the weekend . Off field media posturing is also occurring ,whilst sledging is rife , between opposition club coaches and players . Conjecture as to who will coach which team , and who will play off in the finals is also receiving much media attention .Faithful fans will get to matches , expecting great entertainment  , wearing their teams , footy jumpers , jerseys , guernseys.

Its 3 to go and counting .

AFL International Rules Tour 2010

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

An AFL team,  will play in Ireland , for an International Rules Series , beginning in Limerick on 23 October , 2010.

It continues a 26 year history of competition . The series , was abandoned for two years in 2005 and 2006 , as Australia's style of play,  was deemed too physically combatitive for the Irish team.

Irish fans,  didn't enjoy the spectacle , and left the matches early .
The Irish team , cancelled their tour in 2007 .

The series was played in 2008 , in Australia , but poor economic conditions led to its cancellation in 2009.

An amalgamated team of AFL players and advisors , with acting coach Mick Malthouse , the Collingwood Magpies ,  successful premiership Coach , to make the 2010 Tour .

The Australian players will wear the modern style , AFL Football Jumper , Jersey , Guernsey .

It is usually a unique design incorporating the Australian Coat of Arms , AFL and International Rules Series logos,  and becomes a collectible, amongst supporters.

The tour concludes in Dublin, on 30 October , 2010.

Modern Guernseys will be worn for the Series
