So the Victorian Vipers and Vikings have received a rebate of some of their payment for 2016, with a letter from Hockey Victoria thanking them for their contribution for 2016.
But included is also the fact that Hockey Australia are currently looking into AHL as a whole, and might potentially be looking at an entirely new concept.
I think everyone would agree that more time and effort needs to be put in (off-field - definitely not on-field!) to have the best national competition we could have - so what would you like to see????
Clubs go head to head? Top 2 from each state? Or stick with the states but put some proper marketing behind it and make it a competition all of the best players want to play?
