1908 saw Richmond join the league and seventeen years later, Footscray, Hawthorn and North Melbourne fielded sides in the VFL to create a 12-team competition, affectionately known and referred to Aussie Rules that over the years, created fierce rivalries, rich history and immensely loyal supporters.
It wasn’t until 1987 that the Aussie Rules introduced new teams to the competition – West Coast Eagles and Brisbane Bears which was the catalyst for the emergence of the Australian Football League (AFL) which started in 1990 and soon saw the AFL truly become a national sport with the likes of Adelaide Crows joining in ’91, Fremantle ’95 and Port Adelaide in 1997 – bringing the AFL competition to 18 teams as it currently stands.
Reigning AFL Premiers are the West Coast Eagles who last year, produced one of the biggest come-back in AFL Premiership history, to claim the club’s fourth Premiership Flag. They trailed by 29 points after the first quarter and only hit the front with less than two minutes to go, courtesy of a Dom Sheed goal from the pocket.
