League structureEdit

The structure of the league follows on from 2014 with a single conference involving the three eastern states/territories (Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, and New South Wales) and the Northern Territory. Three clubs decided not to renew their licenses due to financial complications, including Canberra-based clubs, Belconnen and Queanbeyan, and Sydney-based club, Sydney Hills.[3]

Representative matchEdit

The NEAFL representative team played against the Tasmanian State League representative team in the league's sole state match for the year. The match was played on 7 June in Burpengary and the victory was the first time a NEAFL representative side had won since the competition unified in 2014.[5]

SquadEdit

The 2015 NEAFL representative squad consisted of players from all NEAFL clubs excluding AFL reserves teams (Brisbane Lions, Gold Coast, Sydney Swans, UWS Giants). The team contained seven former AFL-listed players, led by two-time premiership winner with Geelong and 200-gamer, Josh Hunt. The side also included young talent in the NEAFL with the inclusion of three 2015 AFL draftees, Josh Smith, Matt Uebergang, and Josh Wagner. The team was coached by AFL Queensland Hall of Famer and former AFL footballer, John Blair.[6] Sydney University captain, Tim Barton, was named as best on ground.[7]
