AFL Riverina Competitions Announcement

Hi All,
Firstly, I wish to thank all clubs who submitted an application to participate in the Riverina FNL in 2023. The
effort put into completing the applications is to be commended. The Board believes that the process
undertaken will benefit clubs in the long term and provide the tools to measure how clubs are performing as
a whole club and not just focused on performances on the field or court.

As a result of the application process, we now have 13 clubs with Junior Pathways Plans and Strategic
Plans in place. This will not only benefit those clubs involved, but the future of our competitions.
The Assessment Committee has identified the strengths and areas for improvement for all clubs and this is
outlined in the RFNL Nomination Assessment Report. AFL Riverina Operations staff will arrange to catchup with each club to discuss feedback from the assessment report, in particular the clubs that have not been recommended for the Riverina FNL in 2023.

The Nomination Assessment Group has recommended, and the AFL Riverina Board has approved, the
following clubs for the Riverina FNL in 2023 (in alphabetical order):
• Collingullie-GP FNC
• Coolamon Rovers FNC
• Griffith FNC
• Leeton-Whitton FNC
• Narrandera Imperial FNC
• Turvey Park FNC
• Wagga Tigers FNC

The following clubs have not been recommended:
• East Wagga-Kooringal FNC
• Marrar FNC
• North Wagga FNC
• Northern Jets FNC

AFL Riverina will now focus on finalising the structure of the Farrer FNL competition for 2023 and working
with the remaining clubs who have not been assessed against the minimum standards.
If you wish to discuss any aspects of the report, please do not hesitate to contact myself or one of the other
Board members. Contact details are listed at
