Quote:

The opportunities for the game of AFL internationally is endless. Who's to say in 100 years' time that we don't have international teams who are playing the game of AFL football. Who knows?

"Watching Brett bring AFL to people who are living in very poor conditions around the world I see the change that can come through sport, through this opportunity. Brett is a really giving and great person and its shining even more that we are abroad - with people he's never met, he's giving them an opportunity to change their lives."
