Borroloola Cyclones. Nearpost salutes you!

How big is your local population your local club, your local town, your local Football Federation?
How would your local junior club, town or Federation fare if they took on a Nation.

Borroloola Cyclones. Population 600. Yes that's 600 people of which maybe half are under 20 and half of them are boys and girls.

Well the "Nation" of Borroloola took on East Timor, Aceh and Macau recently in the Arafura Games held in Darwin. They lost a number of games but only by 2,3 or 4 which as you know in Junior football never mind junior international football is nothing.

And they beat an NT Representative side!

Think of a village of 600 people near do you think they would fare against East Timor or Aceh?

We hear from Cyclones Coach Glen Thomson, a true legend of Australian football, on the Nearpost on Tuesday, catch the podcast on here on Wednesday.
