Managers and coaches attend press conference ahead of first test

Managers and coaches attend press conference ahead of first test

Coca Cola Ireland squad coach Sean Boylan and Sean Cavanagh have appeared in front of the media with Aussie coach Mick Maltouse and captain Brent Harvey before tomorrow's first International Rules test in Perth.

One of the top dogs in the AFL has also been explaining why there are high hopes for a sporting series this time round.

Aussie Rules moderator Kevin Sheehan believes a video referee will add further strength to the policing measures for the two test tournament and he admitted embarrassment over scenes from the previous series in 2006.

Both managers are due to name their sides before game throw-in tommorrow but the respective management staff are stressing the strong desire to focus on making both games sporting spectacles.
