first_imgTouch Football Australia would like to wish all National Indigenous Team members the best of luck, as they depart for a tour of New Zealand tomorrow. The tour will encompass seven days in three regions of Auckland, Hamilton & Wellington, as our top indigenous Women’s & Men’s Open teams showcase their talent, and are exposed to the elite level of the sport. Among the opposition will be the New Zealand Under 19s, Under 21s, and Open’s  Men’s and Women’s teams.  The initiative created by TFA in conjunction with the National Indigenous Advisory Committee, will be the first of the program, with many more tours & initiatives to follow in the future. The teams will encompass a mix of youth and experience. Six Australian Youth Squad representatives will take part in the tour, with Jordan Ah Sam, Jenaya Quan, Kristin Wuruki, & Jess Shaw in the Women’s and Kristian Congoo and Cody Green in the Men’s.  World Cup victor Bo De La Cruz will captain the Women’s team, ably coached by the experienced Harry Appo, while the Men’s team will be coached by current National 18s Men’s coach Ricky Luland.last_img
