    I have it on good authority that these two coaches are going to America on a study tour to look at grid iron development this month, and they are also taking the time to hold some coaching clinics for the AMNRL.

    Smith has shown support for the game in America for a few years now by having a few players from Media Mantarays (sister club of Parra) doing a bit of training etc at Parra.
    Eliott is another guy with life experiences that should make him supportive of the AMNRL. Eliott played in France as a young guy and made his coaching name in England, so he is well versed in the International aspects of the game.

    Coaching clinics by two of the best coaches in the game, and both guys who should be really keen on seeing American League prosper, is just the thing needed. It's just a pity that they can't spend more than just a few days doing this valuable work.

    I hope league doesn't turn into the debacle that international soccer has become with regards to clubs releasing players.
