Veteran's Challenge

Overview

In 2010 the Veteran's Challenge replaced the annual State of Origin competition which had been played for the previous 10 years. This season the teams comprise of the following iVFL teams:

VeteransChallengers
Weetangera WormsAinslie Archangels
Red Hill RavensHarrison Half-wits
Wanniassa WombatsHarcourt Hedgehogs

The Veteran's Challenge teams are coached by the coach of the team highest on the ladder for a Veterans and the Challengers in the week prior to the competition.

In 2013 the the Challengers won by a mere 3 points in by far the most exciting finish to a game in the new format. Last season, Coach Purvis, guided the Veterans home to a narrow 8 point win after the Challengers held a slender lead going into the last term. The Veterans now lead the Challengers 5 wins to 2.

This year the Challangers look the best they have for many years and should start clear favourites with Coach Quester at the helm. But no doubt Coach Purvis will be keen to add to his string of successes in this game. Good Luck!
