Aussie Rules head for Birmingham for Fitzpatrick Cup 2016
The U.C.C. Bombers Australian Rules Football team will travel to Birmingham to compete in the Fitzpatrick Cup, which will take place on the 23rd of January, the annual European Championships for Universities playing Aussie Rules.
The Bombers will travel hoping to go one better than last year where they were beaten finalists by the hosts, Birmingham, after a difficult and physically demanding route to the final. In that run to the final they were beaten in their first game by Exeter before going on to beat Oxford and Cambridge to reach the final.
This year the Bombers will be sending over two sides such is the strength in depth of the squad available and will be joined from Ireland by a team from Maynooth University, while the English sides competing are Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge.
